Microsoft could be on the verge of purchasing Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity and South Park: The Stick of Truth developer, Obsidian Entertainment, according to recent reports.
A Microsoft spokesperson said the company does not comment on speculation, while Obsidian at least took a lighter approach to the news, stating: “Unfortunately, we don’t comment on rumours or speculation other than to say that the Rumours album by Fleetwood Mac still holds up.”
If the deal goes through, it would be the fifth studio this year Microsoft have purchased, following the acquisitions of Ninja Theory (Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice) Playground Games (Forza Horizon series) Undead Labs (State of Decay 2) and Compulsion (We Happy Few).
A Kotaku source close to Microsoft is reporting that the company is looking to reinvigorate its PC development, and that Obsidian would be a “perfect fit” for such a task.
