Microsoft Acquire Twisted Pixel
It was today confirmed that the indie studio, Twisted Pixel isn’t going to remain indie for very long as they’ve now been acquired by Microsoft. This comes from almost exclusively developing for the Xbox Live system since their inception in 2006.
“Twisted Pixel has an incredible track record of delivering innovative, critically acclaimed, and most importantly, fun, games,” said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president, Microsoft Studios. “Microsoft Studios is home to cutting-edge entertainment experiences, and the incredible creativity of the Twisted Pixel team will help drive further innovation around Kinect and Xbox LIVE.”
The team at Twisted Pixel will be joining the likes of Rare Ltd and Lionhead Studios who have all been purchased by Microsoft over the years.
