Embracer Announces That Volition Will Become Part of Gearbox After Saints Row Disappointed


Recommended Posts


Gearbox has "all the tools" to create future success at Volition, Embracer'




In a statement released alongside its second quarter earnings results, Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors explained that Volition will be switching operative groups from Plaion (formerly Koch Media) to Gearbox Entertainment.

“The reception of Saints Row did not meet the full expectations and left the fanbase partially polarized,” he said.


“The game development studio, Volition, has been working hard to improve the player experience.”


While the game disappointed critically, Wingefors said: “Financially, Saints Row has performed in line with management expectations in the quarter.


“Going forward, Volition will transition to become part of Gearbox which has all the tools, including an experienced management team in the US, to create future success at Volition.
