- inXile Entertainment was recently acquired by Microsoft.
- The team is still working on an unannounced multiplayer virtual reality project.

inXile Entertainment was recently purchased by Microsoft, but that hasn't stopped the team from completing projects it was working on before the acquisition. According to a post on its official Twitter page, that includes a virtual reality (VR) game. inXile is "looking for a Senior Unreal 4 Multiplayer Engineer for an unannounced VR project."
inXile's unannounced game is not only a VR project, but it's also a multiplayer experience. Given the fact that the studio is known for enthralling role-playing titles, it'll be interesting to see what this is. Only time will tell, and we can't wait to learn more. Keep in mind that this project has been in development since before the team became a part of Xbox Game Studios. Just because it's working on a VR title doesn't mean that "Project Scarlett" will support VR.
