While reporting on the recent news of Dead Island 2 possibly becoming next-gen exclusive, I found some interesting tidbits surrounding Deep Silver, its parent company Koch Media, and the Embracer Group. The info strongly suggests that big games are coming from Deep Silver in the 2021-2022 period.

First, let's take a look at what Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors said in a recent Q3 presentation. The company expects FY2022 to be its best yet because of "numerous significant releases towards the second half of the year." This aligns with what Koch Media, the parent company of Deep Silver, said in another presentation:

"Notable organic growth expected in Games segments driven by significant product releases 2021 and beyond."

So what is Deep Silver's teams working on? A lot of things under a lot of studios. The big headliners are Dead Island 2 and Saints Row V, so it's possible these games are coming soon.

Right now, Koch Media has multiple teams working on different projects. Not all of them are nestled under Deep Silver, but these games typically earn the lion's share of revenues.

  • Dambuster - Dead Island 2
  • Warhorse - New unannounced project
  • Volition - Saints Row V
  • Fishlabs - Chorus
  • Flying Wild Hog - Shadow Warrior 3

What does this mean? Basically that something big should be coming from Deep Silver in the 2021-2022 period.
