The takeover of Square Enix developer studios in the west by the Embracer Group has raised many questions.
Among other things, why the purchase price with $ 300 million for the studios Eidos Montreal, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix Montreal appears so low. A question that also asked the industry analyst David Gibson... and answered afterwards. Square Enix was therefore unable to achieve a good result with the Marvel licenses. According to Gibson, you lost $ 200 million with the two games Marvel’s Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The sale of part of the western company is just right for 300 million Square Enix. Nevertheless, the price also seems too low for him, considering that four AAA games will probably come from the studios that have now been sold, Gibson said.
