Never played an Obsidian game (had to look them up), but if ther s talent there in need of funding them this could turn out to be a good thing.

Not surprised at Obsidian as its been rumoured for a few months but a good deal for both sides.

This is all setting up for the next gen Xbox isn’t it? None of the newly bought teams will have anything out on XBone at this point

They are building a strong collection of teams though, makes them look more appealing for next gen.

Next Gen + higher budget + Google/Amazon. Slight chance of a Ninja Theory game coming first to XB1 although technically with xCloud everything will be coming to XB1 probably.

A person familiar with goings-on at Microsoft said the company has been looking to bolster its PC development.
