Om hvorvidt det egentlig gav mening at lukke Tango Gameworks eller ej, så synes det ret åbenlyst at Microsoft håndterede lukningen ret skidt, og kom med rodede udtalelser efterfølgende, og kunne ikke rigtig svare på hvordan det at udgive et hit efter deres egne parametre ikke kunne sikre studiets overlevelse - om ikke andet bare nogle år endnu.

Så bør studier som Obsidian være nervøse? Det er de i hvert fald ikke ud af til. I et interview med PC Gamer siger stifter og CEO Feargus Urquhart at de er bange for at blive lukket ned, men indrømmer dog at der er skepsis og frygt blandt udviklere.

"It's just horrible. At Obsidian we had to go through three layoffs [before being acquired]. They're right behind my parents' deaths as some of the worst days I've ever had, so no, these are just not great things. Everything that's happened over the last six months with layoffs and the pinnacle of this stuff with Tango and Arkane and the other studios, it really has made people worried, and shaken. I think we just try to say 'Hey, this is what we're working on today, and we believe in it.' I'm not saying that [Tango and Arkane] didn't believe in what they're doing, but we just keep our heads down and move forward and say we're working on great games. We're working on Avowed, we're working on Outer Worlds 2. It's probably not a surprise—we have other stuff we're thinking about and looking at doing."

Men Urquhart tror stadig helt og holdent på at Microsoft er gode studieejere, og svarede direkte "yes", da han blev spurgt af PC Gamer.
