"We might not tackle a game like this again"

Obsidian opens up after Armored Warfare contract terminated.

Obsidian Entertainment has assured Eurogamer it is "doing fine" following the announcement it will no longer develop Armored Warfare, the free-to-play tank game. Those duties will move wholesale to Russian studio My.com, owned by the Russian company bankrolling the whole operation, Mail.ru.

I had no idea things at Obsidian Entertainment had been so bad. I knew things weren't great before the record-breaking Project Eternity Kickstarter campaign, but I didn't realise that game had saved the company - that without it the studio would have closed.

Role-playing specialist Obsidian is making a free-to-play online tank game called Armored Warfare, a bizarre fit but one that pays the bills. I played it at Gamescom and it was entertaining, and now a video of the demo I played has emerged from PAX.
