Well, as with previous thread about Obsidian, this deteriorated quickly into MS vs Sony. I'll rephrase here what I said there:

There are actual CRPG fans, some being that for 30+ years, who don't give a toss about MS v Sony and all that crap, and who are aware that Obsidian is one of the last devs with folks from the olden golden days of CRPGs (Black Isle Studios) who have talent and knowledge to make proper CRPGs and not diluted mass market action-adventures with RPG coat of paint - so those fans, although genre is fairly healthy at this point (Shadowrun Returns/Hong Kong, Wasteland 2, Pillars of Eternity 1/2, Divinity: Original Sin 1/2, The Age of Decadence, Torment: Tides of Numenera...), don't want to see one of the last bastions of CRPGs bite the dust.

I would rather see them going to THQ Nordic, but who knows - maybe MS will give them enough freedom and money - maybe they even get them license from one of the well known pen and paper RPGs (another Vampire the Masquerade would be great, given that Boyarsky has co-created Bloodlines and is back with Obsidian since '16) and let them do their thing...time will tell.
