Microsoft Looking to Buy ‘Pillars of Eternity’ Dev Obsidian
11 October, 2018, 03:06 | Author: Leah Owens
Jumping into a bit of history of Obsidian Entertainment for those that don't know, the independent development studio is best-known for their RPG titles such as Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Fallout: New Vegas.
An article from Kotaku has commented on Microsoft's intentions to acquire Obsidian Entertainment.
According to sources close to Kotaku, Microsoft is now finalizing a deal to acquire the independent company to gain another first party studio. While these deals sometimes fall apart at the last minute, one source told Kotaku that it was merely "a matter of when, not if". The studio was saved from closure, however, by the success of its crowdfunded project "Pillars of Eternity" in 2015, which raised almost $4 million. Hilariously, Obsidian stated that "we don't comment on rumors or speculation other than to say that the Rumors album by Fleetwood Mac still holds up". If Microsoft goes ahead and buys the California-based RPG specialists then the latter will join other video-game companies that have been snapped up by the tech giant.
