Surprising the audience in attendance at its E3 2019 press conference (and basically everyone), Microsoft today announced that it has acquired Double Fine, the studio that made Psychonauts and is currently working on its sequel.
Taking the stage alongside Microsoft’s Matt Booty, Double Fine head Tim Schafer joked that he’s a “team player” who’ll make anything Microsoft wants. “Halo stuff,” he said, listing examples. “Uh... Forza stuff. Excel stuff. Whatever you want, we are there.”
“Tim, we just want you to make great games,” Booty replied.
“Phew, that’s such a relief, because I was totally lying,” replied Schafer.
