Lara Craft Go developer Square Enix Montréal has been rebranded as Onoma following its acquisition by Embracer Group earlier this year.
As reported by GI.biz, a post on the developer’s new website explained that “Onoma is Greek for name and names offer endless possibilities”, symbolising that players “can be anyone, achieve anything, and go anywhere”.
The post continued: “As game makers, we are inventors of new worlds, of new possibilities. Names are the beginning of stories – of our story as individuals and as a community. Stories are invitations to other worlds where the unknown, the impossible, and the magical become reality.
“At Onoma, we are creators, inventors, and storytellers, and the experiences and ideas that we bring to life connect us to each other and to players.”
The rebrand marks the beginning of a new chapter for Onoma, which was acquired from Square Enix alongside Crystal Dynamics and Eidos-Montréal back in August.
It’s not the only change being made by Embracer following its $300 million purchase of the three studios, however, as it’s also it’s also eyeing new “sequels, remakes, remasters, and spin-offs” from their library of games which includes Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Thief.
It’s shown particular interest so far in the long dormant Legacy of Kain franchise, with Crystal Dynamics asking fans earlier in October if they’d like to see a new entry.
