Overview edit · view history

Located in Santa Ana in the heart of Orange County, California in the United States, Obsidian Entertainment was founded in 2003 by game development veterans Feargus Urquhart, Chris Parker, Darren Monahan, Chris Avellone and Chris Jones. When Interplay closed its Black Isle Studios development division in December 2003, many of the employees moved on to Obsidian.

Purely RPG-minded, the company is responsible for creating new installments in established role-playing series (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords, Neverwinter Nights 2, Fallout: New Vegas), as well as originally-themed games such as Alpha Protocol, Tyranny and the Pillars of Eternity series.

They also worked on Aliens: Crucible, a cancelled game in the Aliens franchise.

The company was acquired by Microsoft Corporation and placed in its Microsoft Studios (today Xbox Game Studios) label on 10 November 2018.

Credited on 22 Games from 2004 to 2023
