Embracer Group has announced its latest acquisition and it’s another big one. Making a deal with Square Enix for $300 million, this sees them set to acquire Crystal Dynamics, Eidos-Montréal, and Square Enix Montréal.

Sharing the news in a press release, this acquisition also includes IP rights to several big franchises, including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Thief, Legacy of Kain, and “more than 50 back-catalogue games from Square Enix Holdings.” It’s a surprisingly low amount given what’s on offer here, though Square Enix has often expressed disappointment at sales for Western games.
