  • RUMOR Sources Reporting that Microsoft May Be Buying Obsidian Entertainment

With that said, Obsidian's games saw a great deal of success on the original Xbox and the Xbox 360 with a few console exclusives, such as the much-loved KOTOR II: Knights of the Old Republic.

According to a report from Kotaku's Jason Schreier, technology titan Microsoft is in talks to acquire independent development house Obsidian Entertainment. Working under Microsoft would ensure that the studio's projects would have ample funding, as the it has faced closure before in 2012.

By grabbing a studio like Obsidian, Microsoft would be expanding its game-related portfolio of companies, and it would offer a new option for developing future Xbox and PC titles, especially those in the RPG genre. "Unfortunately, we don't comment on rumors or speculation other than to say that the Rumors album by Fleetwood Mac still holds up", said a spokesperson from Obsidian. One person with knowledge of the deal told Kotaku they heard it was "90 percent" finished. As mentioned above, Sony clearly is on the winning side when it comes to better titles on their platform, but what if Microsoft can swing the market with some strong RPG releases?

This would be a huge move for the company behind Xbox, which has been on a shopping spree this year, snapping up four game studios including Playground (Forza Horizon) and Ninja Theory (Hellblade).

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. Obsidian games are also known to be often riddled with bugs at launch and perhaps Microsoft's Quality Assurance department can lend a hand with that particular issue.
