Embracer Closes The Campfire Cabal Studio A Year After The Launch

Embracer continues restructuring its business operations.

Embracer announced they decided to shut down game studio Campfire Cabal a year after the launch of the division. The main reason is said to be the organization's restructuring of its business operations.

"This decision was not related to the work we've been doing at the studio but was made from a purely financial standpoint," wrote Campfire Cabal. "We want to make it clear that our management and the rest of the team have not given up on Campfire Cabal yet, and neither have our friends at THQ Nordic. We are still pursuing our options for finding a good resolution to this situation, and THQ Nordic has been very supportive throughout this difficult time."

The team added they are encouraging their team members to start job-seeking "since the process of finding work can be slow". The management emphasized they don't want people to consider the needs of the company over their own.

"Embracer currently engages close to 17,000 people, and while that number will be lower by the end of the year, it is too early to give an exact forecast on this," said Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors.
