The studio is currently undergoing a period of rapid expansion and aims to grow its headcount to 350 team members by 2024.

Lost Boys will operate as a subsidiary of Gearbox -- which recently merged with Embracer -- following the acquisition.

"Lost Boys will operate as a subsidiary to Gearbox, within the growing Embracer family, and will continue to operate independently under Gearbox Entertainment while working in tandem with Gearbox on full development projects," reads a press release.

Lost Boys CEO Shaun Nivens will report to Gearbox Software president Steve Jones once the deal has been completed.
