Obsidian and inXile are joining Microsoft’s games division

Microsoft is once again expanding its portfolio of games studios. The company announced yesterday that it is adding Obsidian Entertainment, creators of Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity, and Inxile Entertainment, the studio behind Wasteland 2 and The Bards Tale IV, to its growing list of Microsoft Studios. Microsoft’s plan to acquire Obsidian has been an open secret for a month, since Kotaku’s Jason Schreier reported on rumors to that effect in October. InXile is more of a surprise, but the company has a similar RPG-heavy focus and roots that date back well into role-playing history: Interplay founder and CEO Brian Fargo left the company in 2002 and started inXile. Microsoft announced the acquisitions Saturday at XO18, held in Mexico City, and it’s part of a recent trend that’s developed since the company made a significant overhaul to its games division leadership. At E3 this summer, the company announced it was acquiring Forza studio Playground Games, Ninja Theory (who created Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice), State of Decay creators Undead Labs, and Compulsion Games, makers of We Happy Few.
