Imagine buying Obsidian and telling them they have no creative freedom to make the survival game they wanted.

Imagine it already being in development when you buy them and instead of intervening and putting a stop to it (committing that publisher influence everyone worries about when it comes to MS), to actually just let them continue making it knowing how it makes MS look like they're imposing their will.

Can't win either way.

The nerve of Microsoft for letting a developer work on what it wants to work on. I demand Microsoft gives their studios creative freedom but only as long as they create games that I want!

OT: FWIW Obsidian is a 3-4 team studio, one team has just released The Outer Worlds, Grounded is a 2nd team of 13 employees in a near 200 employee studio, their third team is working on a AAA ARPG rumoured to be a blend of Pillars x Skyrim so I'm sure Microsoft is fine with them experimenting a little.

As a fan of survival games like Minecraft I am looking forward to Grounded. I know of a few friends who will likely buy it as well and we will get a world going together.
