Gearbox is reportedly up for sale by parent company Embracer. This report comes from Reuters that say a sale of Gearbox is just one option that Embracer is considering for the Borderlands studio. According to Reuters' reporting, a number of third-parties have already expressed interest in picking up Gearbox.

So far, this is just one report and has not been confirmed yet. Neither Embracer nor Gearbox have issued comments about this supposed sale. However, marketing materials for purchasing Gearbox have reportedly been shipped around to potential buyers.

This potential sale comes less than two weeks after Embracer completely shuttered Volition and laid off an undisclosed number of employees from the publishing arm of Gearbox, Gearbox Publishing. In early August, Embracer closed Campfire Cabal. All of this comes after a $2 billion deal fell through at the last possible second.

Gearbox was picked up by Embracer back in February 2021 in a deal that was valued at $1.4 billion (USD). Recently, Gearbox released New Tales from the Borderlands and Gearbox Publishing put out the Gunfire Games developed Remnant 2.
