exactly. I’m worried about everybody involved in this deal.

I don’t really see how that distinction even matters anymore. it’s all Microsoft now. but I imagine if Microsoft gives the Fallout and Elder Scrolls franchises to Obsidian they’ll be in good hands.

while they haven’t been doing very well with Fallout and Elder Scrolls pretty much everything else they’ve published lately has been solid.

they had 20 years to build up their own studios and original IPs though. they had plenty of time and three console generations to do it.

go read the comic book if you haven’t already.

again half the studio left the year before the buyout to form Free Radical Design. there was absolutely a mass exodus.

don’t stop there. what other “very good” games have they made while under Microsoft?

I also stated on a previous post that the bulk of rare talent left long before the acquisition which is why Nintendo didn't continue their majority shareholding in the company which led to Microsoft taking over. You are right.

also a gaming PC is going to last through multiple console generations and generally cost less to upgrade.

half the studio left the year before the acquisition because they didn’t want to be in Microsoft’s back pocket.

they also made a whole lot of shit for Microsoft before that and lost basically all of the top employees from before the acquisition.

Top rare employees left 5 years after the acquisition

that’s what I keep trying to explain to people. Microsoft will do that to Bethesda and all of their studios.

people started leaving right when the bidding war for the company started.

it does have that same kind of vibe to it which I really like.

you say that like Microsoft hasn’t bought studios and then shut them down just to get their IPs which they’ve done next to nothing with.

so that purchase is finally paying off after 15 years? it’s about time. it’s almost like the squandered their chance to make it pay off sooner.

Nintendo and Microsoft were in a bidding war for the studio and they knew Nintendo couldn’t win.

that would be the smart thing for them to do but I don’t think the people at Microsoft making these decisions are that smart.
