In the own words of Urquhart:
“We were approached by another top publisher, and I was having lunch with one of the top executives from this publisher, and he said, ‘Did you ever consider getting bought? I said, ‘yeah, sure’ and what they told me lately was, ‘well, we’re currently having a lot of problems hiring people’ … “
Uruqhart explained that this publisher I wanted to acquire Obsidian to distribute the team among their own game, because they could not hire people. In the end, Obsidian He rejected the proposal, stating that the ideal arrangement was to fit “culturally” and be able to work with people with whom you can “sit down and have a beer.”
Currently, Obsidian is working on Grounded and The Outer Worlds 2, which hopefully will arrive sometime in 2022.

In the same way, the future of this company is quite promising and very good years are coming for users of Xbox.
