He doesn't expect as great a return on investment as from other games.
Embracer Group’s CEO Lars Wingefors said the recently released Saints Row had been "very polarising." The game was developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver, both of which are owned by Embracer.
Wingefors addressed the criticism saying he "had hoped for a greater reception to the game."
"It’s been very polarising. There are a lot of things that could be said in detail around it, but I’m with one hand happy to see lots of gamers and fans happy, and at the same time I’m a bit sad to also see fans not happy, so it’s difficult."
Earlier, Embracer's stock price dropped following the controversial reviews the game got, but the CEO is sure the company will make money from the investment.
"On the financial side, I know, or I’m confident we will make money on the investment. Would it have as great a return on investment as we have seen in many other games? Not very likely, but we will make money, and that’s a very good starting point at least."
Wingefors said he still trusts the team behind the game and is sure they "will recommend things for the future."
