A few days ago, we reported that inXile Entertainment was working on an unannounced project aside from Wasteland 3. It seems like inXile isn't the only recent Microsoft acquisition working on other projects. According to a report by The Inner Circle Games Network, Obsidian Entertainment is also developing another title with Unreal Engine 4. That's quite the departure from Unity to say the least.
This information was revealed during a talk Senior Programmer Roby Atadero gave at the University of California, Riverside. He discussed a variety of topics, like the acquisition, and what the future holds for the studio.
Before the acquisition, Obsidian developed games using their in-house Onyx Engine. The team would then move on to use Unity for Pillars of Eternity, and now have begun work on a new unannounced project using Unreal Engine 4. Roby Atadero did not divulge anything deeper on the topic.
It's great to see that Obsidian is working on another game in the powerful Unreal Engine 4. The Coalition pushed boundaries with Gears of War 4, so hopefully that team's expertise will serve Obsidian well. There is a lot of collaboration that goes on between Microsoft's various studios.
It's unclear what this project is or what the expected launch date is, but given the fact that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, recently launched, it might be a few years away. Hopefully Microsoft will share more at E3 2019 or sooner.
