Moon Studios does not want to be acquired by Microsoft, because it is fine where it is and cares about the autonomy obtained over the years.
Moon Studios, the software house of the upcoming Ori and the Will of the Wisp, has no intention of being acquired by Microsoft. To say it was the creative director Thomas Mahler, answering some questions on the Resetera forum. One, in particular, saw him particularly upset.
In summary, the Hudsoniscool user said that Microsoft should try to acquire Moon Studios and the publishing rights of the ARPG that it is developing, to which Mahler pointed out, thus responding to all the others who asked him about the acquisition, that the rights of the ARPG they are in the hands of Moon Studios, which is the first triple-A that they are developing and who have no interest in being acquired by Microsoft because they are as good as they are and do not want to sacrifice their independence for the sods.
Mahler: ” We don’t accept shitty deals from publishers, we don’t have to work for anyone, we have full creative freedom … We are really happy with who we are. Would it be nice to have more money in my bank account? Of course, but are good chances that my daily life would get worse, rather than better. “
For the rest, we remind you that Ori and the Will of the Wisp are currently in the gold phase and is ready for release right on Xbox One and PC. It will also be available immediately for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
