"According to undisclosed sources reported by Kotaku, the acquisition of Obsidian Entertainment by Microsoft is in the final stages of negotiation, in fact about “90%” as per one of the sources. Another source claims that “it’s a matter of when, not if.” The rumors first started back in August this year, when Resetera user Klobrille submitted the following post: “Obsidian Entertainment letter-of-intent for an acquisition by MS. Dated before E3. No written sign of a MS employee (only Obsidian). I’m not as sure on this one as I was with the Playground Games LOI I got access to earlier this year. That’s all I have right now. Hope that’s transparent enough for you guys. I can’t validate it any further, I’m sorry.”"
