Embracer Group Splits into Three to Go Even Further

Recently, we had news that left gamers around the world scratching their heads in surprise: gaming giant Embracer Group decided to split into three different companies. It's like the band breaking up, but instead of three solo musicians, we'd have three gaming superstars: Asmodee Group, Coffee Stain & Friends, and Middle-earth Enterprises & Friends.

Initially, many thought of Embracer Group as the Superman of gaming, flying high and dominating everything in the industry. But, as happens in many epic storylines, even heroes have their moments of downfall. The empire began to crumble, with some iconic acquisitions like Gearbox, the beloved creators of Borderlands, being sold off.

Now, each of these companies will have its own moment in the spotlight, listed publicly and ready to shine on the gaming stage. According to Embracer Group CEO Lars Wingefors, this change is like giving wings so that each company can soar high on its own journey, offering new adventures for investors and fans.

What does this mean for us mere mortals of gaming? Well, for starters, we can expect even more amazing AAA games from Middle-earth Enterprises & Friends, such as our long-awaited Tomb Raider and The Lord of the Rings. Ever thought of playing a board game of The Lord of the Rings? Well, that could become a reality with Asmodee Group.

And if you're into the indie vibe and alternative games, get ready to have fun with Coffee Stain & Friends' games. It's where the unexpected meets the fun, with games like Goat Simulator and Valheim leading the charge.

Sure, all this change has a touch of drama worthy of a Lord of the Rings epic, especially considering the sale of Gearbox for a fraction of the price. But, as in any good story, this is just the beginning of a new chapter. We're excited to see how these new companies will shape the future of gaming.

So, as we eagerly await more details and hope for the long-awaited new Tomb Raider game, now to be published by Amazon Games, let's toast to the future and the adventures that await us.

Let the games begin!
