Literally just saw the news and rushed over here. Congratulations team!
Microsoft seems to have a refocused plan for investing in first-party developers, I think this will be a fine partnership. Just don't forget to give them grief about Stormlands and their good old days with Ensemble. Keep them humble!

A video that doesn't really answer much of anything.
Some starter questions:
1) Will you be hiring? Expanding the number of projects?
2) It's a given that you'll be developing XBox games. But will you still be making classical-style tactical-focused cRPGs?
3) Will Obsidian be deciding on which games they will develop? Or will this be assigned from the powers that be in Redmond?
4) Is MCA drunk yet? Has he raged-posted?

Good luck in the new herd. Roll forward like the rock.
So when new awesome games will be announced, hmm?

So the rumors were true after all. Wishing you all the best guys, and I hope this will result in you guys having a stability and it will give you budget and space to flourish. Looking forward to whatever will be your next projects will be.

Is Obsidian going to still release games on GoG
^^^ I really hope this doesn't mean your games will only be on the Windows/xbox store. I'm sick of intrusive DRM infecting my system and having multiple online clients to play games, so it's now GOG or nothing.

I notice that InXile Entertainment also joined Microsoft. Maybe Microsoft is planning a large cRPG project.

Congrats Obsidian, you definitely made the right choice. Ignore the snide comments, celebrate the victory and the paycheck, I'll continue to suport you guys and buy your games.
Talent is not limited by the parent/owner company, it's quite baffling that some members here would say "Goodbye quality games" due to Mucrosoft buying them out, if anything quality will only go up as they are now free to fund.
Again, I'll say it again,
CONGRATULATIONS OBSIDIAN! May you prosper and continue to give us great games, better games regardless of if only console or not (could care less as I play on both pc and console).

So the next logical step is Microsoft buying the Alpha Protocol IP from SEGA and funding the sequel that EVERYBODY wants, right?
Might as well grab Tyranny from Paradox, too, while they're at it.
I'm all for that. I liked Tyranny more than PoE, but it needs a sequel, and I don't want anyone but Obsidian doing it.
