Obsidian Entertainment will be unveiling its next role-playing game, which is set to be published by Take-Two Interactive’s Private Division, during the Game Awards next week, the developer announced Wednesday.
The news comes as part of a pop-up on Obsidian’s website that says it is sponsored by different fictional companies including “Spacer’s Choice,” which features images of a retro space gun of sorts, and Auntie Cleo’s, which features pictures of skin creme and ointment.
Earlier this month, Microsoft announced plans to acquire Obsidian Entertainment.
“As one of the industry’s premiere RPG developers, we couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to add their expertise to Microsoft Studios, while enabling the studio to preserve its unique culture and build on its talent and vision to fully realize their creative ambitions,” Microsoft said at the time. The company said that Obsidian would continue to operate autonomously.
Private Division, which was formed in December 2017 by Take-Two Interactive as a developer-focused publisher, said at the time it was working with Panache Digital Games, The Outsiders, Squad, V1 Interactive, and Obsidian Entertainment. Beyond “Kerbal Space Program,” which is owned by Take-Two Interactive, this is the first game announced by Private Division.
