Microsoft Acquires Double Fine Productions

Microsoft has acquired Double Fine Productions, the company announced during the Microsoft E3 2019 press conference.

It’s a significant deal for both parties. Double Fine has been famously independent, setting the trend of multi-million dollar, crowdsourced video game Kickstarters. Meanwhile, Microsoft has been rebuilding its Xbox Game Studios as a way to own its own game properties as it extends its platform ambitions.
