Microsoft Rumored to Buy Fallout: New Vegas Developer Obsidian

Continuing the no comment game is a representative from Private Division; a 2K Games label that was reportedly set to publish an upcoming Obsidian project.

It appears Microsoft is looking to buy out Obsidian Entertainment, if a report from Kotaku is accurate.

When reached for comment, both Microsoft and Obsidian refused to comment on rumors or speculation.

Sources close to the matter speaking with Kotaku said the deal is "90%" 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?

At the moment not much else is known about the supposed buyout with a Microsoft spokesperson saying to Kotaku that they "do not comment on rumours or speculation". Its most recent notable game studio purchase before that was Mojang, the maker of Minecraft.

Obsidian's last game as an independent developer? Tense disagreements between the two companies led Microsoft to cancel the game in 2012, and to some involved it was hard to imagine the pair working together again.

Rumours that Obsidian could become part of the Xbox family have been doing the rounds ever since Microsoft announced the acquisition of five new studios at E3, and hinted they were after more.

There is no doubt about Sony having the majority of unbelievable game titles for their PS4 platform, but contrary to popular belief that may not be the case in the future years to come.

The Xbox department is under different leadership now, however, with Phil Spencer taking the top role in early 2014.
