      Anonymous

      Just for context; T2 isn't actually spending $460 million to buy Gearbox. What they are actually doing is just generating $460 million of new shares out of thin air and handing them over to Embracer. They're essentially getting the company for free with the only downside being less than 2% dillution of their share pool

      Embracer doesnt even know how to make money for their shareholders. Nothing to compare with ubislop and blizzard. They ballooned on cheap credit and tried to sell to the Saudis but the deal fell through and the CEO got fired, ever since the deal failed they've been fricked.

      So many great IPs from the 2010s are stuck with Embracer, this company is one of the greatest cancer on gaming.
