Microsoft Snaps Up Game Makers Obsidian And InXile

Microsoft looks to be preparing to make a serious return to PC gaming after announcing it’s acquiring not one but two PC-centric developers, Obsidian and InXile.

InXile was founded by former Interplay executive Brian Fargo, while Obsidian emerged from the ashes of Black Isle Studios.

Microsoft’s acquisition of the cash-strapped companies will boost their efforts to further develop popular games such as Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity.

The companies are renowned for their computer game graphics. Observers say InXile and Obsidian titles will bolster Microsoft’s Xbox line-up. And PC gamers have applauded the move, saying it will move Microsoft up the PC gaming leader-board.
