[INTERVIEW] Microsoft’s Acquisition of Obsidian Is Already Paying Off In A Big Way

Joining us this week is Adam Brennecke, Game Director & Producer of a little game called Grounded. Currently residing as the global best-seller on Steam and with over 1.5 million players within 48 hours of launching in Early Access/Preview, Grounded is an undeniable hit. A lot of the game’s success has to do with how supportive Microsoft has been.

Obsidian has been a quiet, high performing studio for many years. MS was lucky to bring this studio on board and it seems like it is working out for both parties.

*shrug* While highly unlike Fornite, people seem to be enjoying Grounded. I've yet to try it, but looks fun.
What I can't wait for is more Outer Worlds, or their new IP set in the Pillars universe, Avowed.

Could be worse could be crap on duty

My question is why mods let Tyler's comment still up, while Noctis' was hit as "inappropriate", despite being far less instigating, and only directed at one sole person making a point to be highly negative towards the content of the article.

YourMommySpoils1376d ago (Edited 1376d ago )

Who's Noctis and why was it inappropriate? Whatever the case, maybe because I'm telling facts, buddy. No matter the system, people don't need more micro transaction, multiplayer gaming like Fortnite, as this intends to be, unless you're happy wasting your money, then go right ahead. Nothing inappropriate from my end.

One like from me.

No interest but avowed looks really cool and it will be out a few years before elder scrolls and probably be better lol.

Darkborn1376d ago

At least it won't have a 20 year old game engine like elder scrolls 6 will.

sourOG1376d ago

It will also have better writing and characters. No need to wait and see. This is fact.

garos821376d ago

It won't have a 20 year old engine, but it will have 20 year old consoles it will need to run on also, so don't know what is worst tbh

Stellar Blade has sold more physical copies than Dragon's Dogma 2 in Japan, despite PS5 exclusivity

By the looks of it, PlayStation 5 exclusivity does not hurt the sales of Stellar Blade in Japan as the game has passed 90,000 sold physical copies.

Stellar Blade really deserves way more praise than it got, devs have been adding more and more content, for free, since release and the game already was great to begin with!

BrettAwesome8h ago

More than it got? It got tons, by everyone except the sad wankers who's idea of a sex life, is pulling on their dicks while watching big fake cgi titties 😂

Cacabunga8h ago

I think we can safely claim that Stellar Blade 2 is confirmed!
I got it day one, i have some backlog due to RDR2 i just platinumed.. i will get to Stellar Blade in the near future

Same but I'm hitting yakuza right now. Stellar blade looks cool though.

Capcom really dropped the ball with DG2. They had easy success on their hand but instead with their stupid decisions ruined the games success

Stellar blade is an amazing game and deserves all the success. For all the artificial hate it got from people who had no interest in the game to begin with this shows if you make a good game it will sell. The so called 1st party drought from PlayStation has meant 4 exclusives in 2024 so far. Other companies need to learn how to run a business and plan for the future

Stellar blade is performing very impressively there, DD2 didn't do well because word of mouth destroyed it's reputation and not about the Microtransactions or performance, bad word of mouth about how the game lacks so many things that were in the first one

Redemption-648h ago

DS2 sold 2.5M in a little over a week, what the hell are you talking about?

H98h ago

"there", that's Japan, this article is about Japan, the bad word of mouth is about Japan

Exclusives matter. No matter what bumbling phil and bond try to say, exclusives is why you buy a console.

The_Hooligan6h ago

How dare you speak common sense!!??

YourMommySpoils3h ago

Cause Hellblade 2 really matters?
