Two of the industry's most promising RPG crafters are joining Microsoft Studios.
Microsoft is set to add another developer to its growing list of first-party studios. They recently released the second Pillars of Eternity game, but rumors about a potential acquisition had heightened in recent weeks. The same holds true for Obsidian Entertainment, and despite the common heritage both studios share, they will remain free to choose their own creative destiny.

Obsidian Entertainment was founded in 2003 in Irvine, Calif.by industry veterans from Black Isle Studios, led by Feargus Urquhart. They also in recent years had a game in development for Microsoft called Stormlands though that project never got off the ground before it was cancelled in 2012 according to Kotaku.
Some of the most likely reasons for Microsoft picking up both of these studios is to add more titles to Xbox Game Pass and continue to support services similar to that in the future. Fear not, Microsoft assures, "They will continue to operate autonomously with their unique talents, IP and expertise".
