11 October, 2018, 03:09 | Author: Shannon Newton
Obsidian is an independent developer known for role-playing games like "Knights of the Old Republic II", "Alpha Protocol", "Fallout: New Vegas", and "South Park: The Stick of Truth".
According to a recent report from Kotaku, Microsoft is in the final stages of acquiring Obsidian Entertainment and that the negotiotiations are "90% complete". Working under Microsoft would ensure that the studio's projects would have ample funding, as the it has faced closure before in 2012. Another person with knowledge of the deal said, "It's a matter of when, not if".
One compelling argument for the sale is that being owned by a company with deep pockets will offer Obsidian stability and resources the likes of which it has never had before. I will be sure to update you on any confirmation to whether Obsidian is officially going to be acquired by Microsoft. The company is now working on a new RPG that still has no release date. "Unfortunately, we don't comment on rumors or speculation other than to say that the Rumors album by Fleetwood Mac still holds up,"an Obsidian spokesperson told Kotaku".
Obsidian Entertainment has been in operation since 2003 and rose out of the ashes of Black Isle Studios, a company that had been involved in both the Fallout and Baldur's Gate series.
