** Shares of U.S. video-game publisher Take-Two Interactive Software TTWO.O up about 1% at $148.38

** Take-Two on Wednesday said it would acquire Gearbox Entertainment from Sweden's Embracer EMBRACb.ST for $460 mln in newly issued shares

** TTWO received steep discount on the deal as Embracer in 2021 had bought Gearbox in a deal valued at $1.4 bln

** Gearbox will operate as a studio within 2K, a publishing label owned by Take-Two, and will be led by founder and CEO Randy Pitchford

** Reuters reported last year that Embracer had been considering options for Gearbox as it looked to shore up its finances
