pretty much....

lets look at a few examples

FH2 embargo lifted a week early, great review scores.

Destiny, embargo until launched mediocre review scores


Sunset Overdrive embargo lifted one day early i believe? and early live streams? excellent review scores

Call of Duty is a weird one, its been getting good review scores but wasn't the embargo until launch?

these studios and publishers definitely have an idea how it will review beforehand and use embargos accordingly.

Well, they flew out the 'gaming press' to review their game, all expenses paid. I'd wait for actual user reviews.

Activision tends to always have day one review embargoes for some reason. It's weird.

Not at all lol. Some people are late to the party, or somehow only just realizing it.

I'm not saying it is, but it is something a lot of people don't realize. It's also much more apparent than ever now that live-streaming is becoming a more common thing.
