Kelsey Beachum, the narrative designer for Outer Wilds, has a new job–she now works for Obsidian, the developer of The Outer Worlds. Yes, we’ve had to triple-check to make sure we’re getting that right.
Beachem, whose work on Outer Wilds was pivotal in it being declared one of the best games of 2019, has not said what game she’ll be working on at Obsidian, but considering that Microsoft wants to turn The Outer Worlds into a franchise, it’s likely that a sequel is being planned.
If you’re still mixing up these two game names, by the way, Beachum has a pair of handing mnemonic phrases for you.
Guess what, fellow humans, Obsidian HIRED MY DANG FACE
It is my first week and I am SO EXCITED
(Also don’t worry, I am working on a clearer mnemonic. Possibly: “Obsidian’s the studio I w*O*rk for, and they made The Outer W*O*rlds”?) https://t.co/3NkhMx79kN
