CD Project is too expensive. MS isn't going to shell out 8 Billion for a studio unless it comes with alot of IPs and talent. That's a Ubisoft or Square enix type of purchase.
Then I'm changing it to Rockstar OR they take Bioware from EA, since Anthem failed (and because of the assume it couldn't happen bit).

Now Bioware from EA is interesting. Mind you they already have a comparable studio in Obsidian. But if it comes with the IPs like mass effect, dragon age etc. I could see MS making a play. Depends on how EA really feels about the studio and how big of a check MS is willing to make.

Whateves...

For the record, I wouldnt state it if I hadnt heard it from someone I know to be pretty reliable. I didnt promise anything. It's what I heard so Im waiting on official confirmation as well. BUT, what I know about this particular deal and how much you know in comparison, I can assure you, it's you who needs more toilet paper than I do. Dats dat!
No more to the unknown thread for you buddy.

InXile is officially advertising themselves as a AAA studio in their job postings. Considering some of their big hires recently from Blizzard, Sony Santa Monica and Rockstar, makes sense.

Microsoft hid a AAA studio in plain sight. Told you all not to overlook Brian Fargo (head of InXile) now that he's got money to spend for the first time since he ran Interplay.

I really feel like Remedy would be a good pick up for MS but Remedy maybe understandably want no part of that.
I agree. They really lack a first party studio offering their kind of games. At least they announced two projects that are also coming to XSX.

I want Quantum Break 2 to happen and it's looking Remedy isn't working on it. So Maybe MS can get a different studio to work on it, like Ready at Dawn for example.

Ready at Dawn seems to be joined at the hip with Sony. Even if they never purchase Remedy, I would still have them work on QB 2 as an exclusive.

Their schedule is packed already with CrossfireX and 2 other projects. Doesn't leave alot of room for QB2.


It's confirmed. In addition to Wasteland 3, inXile is working on a bigger, ambitious RPG.
