According to the Embracer Group’s press release, Dark Horse, an American comics publisher, was acquired recently by the Embracer Group. Dark Horse published classics such as Hellboy, 300 and The Umbrella Academy. Its catalog also contains many tie-in comics, merchandise, and merchandise for videogames such as The Witcher, Dragon Age and Apex Legends.

Bloomberg reported that Dark Horse was considering its options for potential buyers. Rumors point to Viacom, Disney and Netflix as possible options. Embracer appears less likely to have significant editorial or creative control than potential buyers. The Embracer Group used to be a more hands-off company for acquisitions such as Gearbox, Saber Interactive and Coffee Stain Studios, creators of Satisfactory and Goat Simulator.

Dark Horse will likely continue to be the go-to publisher of videogame franchises that are not under the Embracer umbrella. However, we can expect more collaboration with Gearbox and their holding company-mate the Gearbox. Dark Horse had already planned to publish comics for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, a spinoff of Gearbox’s Borderlands series, long before this acquisition was even considered.—add-unlimited-points-no-verification—add-unlimited-points-no-verification/c/-rPI0Ph-Jqk—add-unlimited-diamonds—add-unlimited-diamonds/c/KxI6Moo3t18
