Microsoft Acquires Twisted Pixel

Posted on October 12, 2011 AT 06:18am

THE BUZZ: Microsoft Studios has acquired Twisted Pixel, the developer behind The Maw, Splosion Man and The Gunstringer.

The studio will be asked to, ”drive further innovation around Kinect and Xbox Live,” as part of the deal. ”It is really exciting for us to solidify our long-standing relationship with Microsoft Studios, who we consider to be the leader in digital distribution and creating new innovations in gaming like Xbox Live and Kinect,” said Michael Wilford, CEO of Twisted Pixel. “As part of the family of Microsoft Studios we look forward to bringing even bigger and richer experiences to Xbox and Twisted Pixel fans around the world.”

EGM’s TAKE: Hopefully, now that twisted Pixel has the full backing of Microsoft behind them, they can really be let loose and show what they are capable of.
