Report: Microsoft Could Buy Pillars Of Eternity Creators Obsidian
Kotaku recently reported and Microsoft is close to inking a deal to purchase the independent developer Obsidian Entertainment. According to the report, the deal is “90%” finished.
Obsidian is best known for its work on RPG series like Knights of the Old Republic II, and Fallout: New Vegas, and most recently the Pillars of Eternity series. Obsidian is currently in a contract to make a new RPG with Private Division, a label within Take-Two Interactive. Fallout creators Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarksy are helming this new project, but It remains to be seen how a Microsoft buyout could effect the game.
Neither Microsoft or Obsidian have confirmed the rumor, but we've reach out to both companies for a comment. A Microsoft spokesperson said, "We do not comment on rumors or speculation.”
