Microsoft throws a big fan bash in Mexico City, and it made many news releases about new games, services and acquisitions at the XO18 fan event. We have summarized what happened to the event here:
At the electronic entertainment exhibition for Electronic Entertainment Expo, Microsoft bought four development studies and opened a new one. And today, it announced that it had taken part in InXile Entertainment, the producer of Wasteland and The Bard's Tale series. InXile's head is game pioneer Brian Fargo.
The agreement is part of Microsoft's strategy, led by Matt Booty, to get more exclusive to the Xbox platform. As part of Microsoft Studios, InXile will have the support and freedom to fully realize its creative ambitions on both existing franchises and new projects, "Microsoft said.
The studio will continue to operate autonomously with focus on role playing.
"We are happy to have made the people, the craft," said Booty on stage. In a video, Fargo said, "I will not leave soon," even though he previously announced that he wanted to.
Microsoft also said that it acquires Obsidian Entertainment.
Irvine, California-based Obsidian Entertainment was founded in 2003 by industrial vetsans from Black Isle Studios (similar to InXile). It quickly made a name for itself with Xbox Exclusive Star Wars: The Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. Over the last fifteen years, the studio has delivered genre-defining RPGs to players on both console and PC through titles, including Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Truth of Sanity, and Pillars of Eternity.
Microsoft said it would allow the studio to maintain its unique culture and build on talent and vision to fully realize its creative aspirations. Both Obsidian and InXile will continue to operate independently.
Together, the two new studios assemble Microsoft Studios with now 13 different development groups. Crackdown 3 Chemical Plant ” width=”800″ height=”450″ data-recalc-dims=”1″/>
