Obsidian Entertainment, the studio perhaps best known for Fallout: New Vegas, looks like it will be leaving PlayStation behind, as reports suggest that it’s about to be acquired by Microsoft – although nothing, as yet, has been signed. Ironically, the developer’s been in financial trouble for a fair few years, after Microsoft cancelled a game that it had in production exclusively for the Xbox One.
Most recently, the Californian company has had success with Pillars of Eternity, and its sequel is supposedly planned for the PlayStation 4 at some point; whether that will still release should the buyout go through remains to be seen. The developer’s declined to comment on the speculation, stating instead that Rumours by Fleetwood Mac “still holds up”. Accurate.
