Wingefors has already donated its collection to form the “archive base”, but the Embracer Group plans to create an “archive of all video games”, important from individual European collectors over the past year. Collection is acquired.

Currently, we have about 50,000 items such as “games, consoles, peripherals, arcades”, many of which are said to be extremely rare. Wingefors states that the project “will take decades to complete,” but the group promises to do it perfectly.

The archives may be stored near the Embracer Group headquarters in Varmland, Sweden, but the company plans to create a “satellite exhibit” for its own company about its creative history. We may also create external traveling exhibitions around the world.

The project is led by Thomas Sunhede, co-author of a book on the history of video game development in Sweden. The Embracer Group states that the archive also acts as a “complete reference library for the benefit of the group”.

Elsewhere, the Embracer Group is developing 150 games, 70 of which have been revealed to be completed by March 2022. The company recently acquired Borderlands developer Gearbox Software for $ 1.3 billion in early February.
