Brian Fargo talked about life at inXile after being acquired by Microsoft and the company's plans to grow and keep making the games they want.
Seeing Fargo helm a Wasteland 3 would be neat.
Would be? Wasteland 3's been in development for a while and set to release next year. Here's the Fig campaign: https://www.fig.co/campaign...
Nice to hear Microsoft is giving their new studios freedom -- micromanaging studios like Rare didn't work out well for them.
Learning from Sony
Rare... micromanaged...? Maybe you missed the part where Rare wanted to make SoT that way and MS gave them freedom to do so. Gave them all the time they wanted and still is supporting their vision of adding more content to an ever evolving game. you certainly are living up to your name there 'Jack'
Sounds like a win win, great to hear!
On the surface it sounds good. I just wonder if there are qualifiers such as: "make whatever game you like...as long as it has online, dlc, microtransactions, etc"? I hope thats not the case, I just have little faith in Microsoft's words. Time will tell.
Good to hear
Good stuff MS. GET OUT OF THE WAY! It’s okay, I’m a limo driver!
Microsoft would do well if they didn't micromanage as they have done in the past. It does seem to be the case that their studios are retaining a level of freedom, much like Psygnosis did with Sony back in the day. However, this freedom will come at a limit, even the biggest studios find that (Naughty Dog, for example) and there are deadlines to meet and budgets to keep within.
Very great interview. I think that with MS’ money, ineXile is gonna become one of the top rpg devs out there.
They had a really solid VR title with "The Mage's Tale". I'm sad that with this acquisition, given XBOX doesn't support VR, that InExile more than likely won't be given the opportunity to build on that strong foundation and possibly make an even better follow up VR title. Maybe if NextBox supports VR we could see something, but until then probably not :-(
