Obsidian Entertainment, founded in 2003 after the dissolution of Interplay Entertainment's Black Isle Studios, is a video game developer for PC and console systems. Obsidian continues to operate under management by its founding officers: Feargus Urquhart, Chris Parker, Darren Monahan, and Chris Jones. In July 2005 they hired Joshua Sawyer of Icewind Dale fame. Several of the developers at Obsidian worked on Fallout, Fallout 2 and Van Buren (the canceled Fallout 3 project).

Obsidian's first office was in Fergus Urquhart's attic[1] before moving to an office park not too far away.

On April 20, 2009, Bethesda Softworks announced that a new game in the Fallout series, Fallout: New Vegas, was being developed by Obsidian. The game was released on October 19 of 2010.
