Obsidian's XBLA title 'on hold'

Obsidian Entertainment
Obsidian Entertainment announced last year that it was working on "an original IP XBLA game," but times have changed. Targeting a launch for the first quarter of 2012, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said at the time it would be an "action RPG that's focused on fun."

Checking in with Urguhart about the project, we were told, "That project is currently on hold; we are looking at where we might want to take it."

It's been a rough news week for Obsidian, as layoffs hit the company and it came to light that the studio missed a bonus based on Fallout: New Vegas' metacritic score by one point. Obsidian is most definitely working on the South Park RPG at the moment, which will be published by the even more financially troubled publisher, THQ.
