Microsoft Is Reportedly Buying The Fallout: New Vegas Developer

Obsidian Entertainment, the developer behind titles including Fallout: New Vegas, is apparently set to be bought-out by none other than Microsoft.

According to reports from Kotaku, the deal isn’t fully finalised, but everything is in place for the acquisition. A source close to them has stated it’s “’90%’ finished.”

Obsidian, an independent development studio, has brought to life other incredibly popular games including Dungeon Siege III and South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Despite developing some really beloved titles in the industry, Obsidian has struggled financially in the past, and nearly closed its doors back in 2012 due to the strain.

The move is yet to be confirmed by anyone official, with Microsoft telling Kotaku:

“We do not comment on rumors or speculation.”

An Obsidian rep jokingly added: “Unfortunately, we don’t comment on rumors or speculation other than to say that the Rumors album by Fleetwood Mac still holds up.”

The move has led people to speculate on what Microsoft plans for the future, with fans questioning what other acquisitions the company is planning on.

Although the deal isn’t yet finalised, it’ll be interesting to see where the move might go…
