Microsoft Acquires Double Fine Productions, Creators Of Psychonauts

Microsoft announced their acquisition of Double Fine Productions, the creators of Psychonauts, Broken Age, Grim Fandango at their E3 2019 Conference today.

The Xbox Game Studios is now a collection of 13 studios –

  • Compulsion Games

  • Rare
  • 343Industries
  • Double Fine
  • inXile Entertainment

It’s interesting to note how Microsoft, in 2004, decided not to publish Double Fine’s Psychonauts. Later, Majesco Entertainment helped Double Fine publish the game on PC, Xbox and PlayStation 2. 15 years later, Microsoft is acquiring Double Fine for over millions of dollars (details on the deal weren’t disclosed).

Double Fine, under Xbox Game Studios, is working on Psychonauts 2. The game is planned for a 2019 release.
