Alone in the Dark did not sell as well as the publisher had hoped. The game hit the market in March this year in versions for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. In our review, the game received a 7 out of 10 for its good depiction of atmosphere and environments, as well as overall enjoyable gameplay. Another game that didn’t reach Embracer’s sales goals is Cast Away: A New Beginning by Appeal Studios.

“Alone in the Dark strives to introduce new audiences to the game, series and story that launched one of the most popular genres many years ago and enjoys enormous support today. Unfortunately, compared to its direct competitors, this new reimagining of the original doesn’t stand out as much as it could, but it’s still a fun and well-made game that I hope is just the start of something bigger.” we wrote in the review.

From 04/01/2023 to 03/31/2024, Embracer Group laid off a total of 1,532 people. Plus she sold Saber Interactive And Transmission software.
