The studio was founded in 2016 by former executives and developers from King, the company behind the Candy Crush Saga franchise. Embark’s first game, Scrollster, was released in December 2017. While the Embark founders have all achieved success, some of their achievements will stand out to gamers in particular. Battlefield 1943 and “Midtown Madness 3” both benefited from Rob Runesson’s art direction.
Unsurprisingly, Magnus Nordin, Stefan Strandberg, Patrick Söderlund, and Johan Andersson, the other founding members of Embark, also gained experience on “Battlefield.” Given the shooter’s continued success, it makes sense that “ARC Raiders” might share some characteristics with it in terms of popularity and gameplay. Lastly, Jenny Huldschiner also works in Arc Raiders for communications and the marketing aspect of the game, she has done work for other games like Star Wars Battlefront II and Medal of Honor, with that kind of crew, you’d expect the game to go in a good direction!
