Embracer Closes Onoma Mobile Studio Just Three Weeks After Name Change

This spring, Embracer Group announced the acquisition of Square Enix’s western studios, including Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montréal, and Square Enix Montréal. The latter was focused primarily on mobile games, with titles such as Lara Croft Go, Hitman Sniper and Deus Ex Go to its credit. About three weeks ago, it was announced that the studio’s name had been changed to Onoma, with the new branding also supposed to herald a new focus. But things probably didn’t go according to plan, as Bloomberg magazine and VGC (citing their sources) reported on Tuesday evening that the studio was closing.

The reason for the studio’s closure was the refusal to develop mobile games within Embracer per se, but also due to an investigation into the funds, which, according to Jason Schreier, should apply to other studios. For example, Eidos Montréal has reportedly been forced to downsize one of its projects. By the way, some employees from Onoma were supposed to go to this studio. And as we wrote a few hours earlier, the new Deus Ex is to be created in the offices there, among other things.
