Microsoft revealed at XO18 that they’ve purchased Wasteland 2 developers, InXile Entertainment. This news follows Microsoft’s tease earlier this year, where they said they had purchased some big studios that would be announced at a later date. In a brief video segment, Brian Fargo said that the team was excited to “tap into the incredible Microsoft ecosystem.” He continued, saying “Of course, we’re going to continue doing role-playing games. [This purchase will] allow us to make role-playing games for many years to come.” Addressing any potential concerns that the team at InXile would be shaken up by this announcement, Fargo said that “the DNA of the company will remain the same.” InXile Entertainment is known for their deep role-playing games, such as Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera. Their next big project, Wasteland 3, is slated for a 2019 release and is set to launch across all platforms. Alongside this news, Microsoft also confirmed rumors that they had purchased Obsidian.
