As you may have seen, Microsoft has announced its intention to acquire inXile and Obsidian. We are thrilled for these two amazing studio partners of ours, and for the Microsoft family. We are proud to have worked with these two studios to help fund, develop and publish inXile’s Wasteland 3 and Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity II through Fig.co.
For those who invested in the Fig Game Shares for these games, nothing changes to your shares as a result of this transaction. If and when the acquisitions complete, the licensing contracts will continue to persist unchanged and we expect they will be transferred to Microsoft or kept with the studios, depending on how the acquisitions are structured. Our contracts with developers anticipate that studio acquisitions like these may occur. In addition, inXile has stated that the development of Wasteland 3 will continue after the acquisition. You can view short video messages from inXile’s Brian Fargo and the Obsidian team about the acquisitions.
We look forward to continuing to work with Brian Fargo and Feargus Urquhart on our studio advisory board. We thank you for all for your support of Fig.co and for helping to make these studios and their games a success.
