Rumor: Microsoft to Acquire 'Fallout: New Vegas' Developer Obsidian Entertainment

Microsoft to Buy Fallout New Vegas Developer Obsidian Report

According to Kotaku, Microsoft is now in the process of buying the Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian to add to their evergrowing list of studios. Obsidian games are also known to be often riddled with bugs at launch and perhaps Microsoft's Quality Assurance department can lend a hand with that particular issue.

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

A quick look at Obsidian's resume reveals that they have made some of the greatest RPGs of all time. Obsidian became noted for work on role-playing games, including Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Neverwinter Nights 2, Dungeon Siege III, and South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Obviously, a deal with Microsoft would put such projects back into play again.
