The Game Awards kicks off tomorrow with gamers itching to see what new titles will be revealed at the showcase. While details are slowly coming to light, we now know Saber Interactive will be among them.
Saber Interactive revealed today it will announce multiple new titles over the next few days. The company teased five new announcements between The Game Awards and Twitch Winter Gathering, a showcase to be held on Friday.
“Saber is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and it’s amazing how much the company has evolved in that time,” Todd Hollenshead, Head of Publishing said in a press release. “Our company has long been known for its sterling reputation as a developer, and since joining the Embracer family we have continued to grow on that front by acquiring some of the most talented studios from around the world.”
A brand new announcement and trailer from Saber and Focus Entertainment will be shown at Thursday’s The Game Awards. Saber Interactive will then premiere another three titles and trailers at its showcase in the Twitch Winter Gathering starting at 3:50 pm CT. Fans will also get to see an exclusive interview between Geoff Keighley, Saber’s Chief Creative Officer Tim Willits, and Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell providing more details for the upcoming Evil Dead: The Game set to release in February 2022.
Saber Interactive Upcoming Titles
Outside of Evil Dead: The Game, we know about two titles coming from the US based developer and publisher. In October, we saw the announcement of A Quiet Place, a title taking place in the movie universe of the same name, coming in 2022. Koch Media revealed in June a new entry in the Painkiller franchise was in the works. Koch Media listed Saber Interactive as a co-publisher. The company didn’t reveal anything else about the title. The original Painkiller released in 2004 with a partial remake and sequel called Painkiller: Hell & Damnation releasing in 2012.
Founded in 2001, Saber Interactive was acquired by Embracer Group in 2020. Saber Interactive operates 19 studios across North America and Europe. In 2021, the company released Crysis 2 and 3 Remastered as well as World War Z: Aftermath.
