Tim Schafer is a busy man as of late. As if the stress of developing Psychonauts 2 weren't enough, he's also managed to find time to sell his studio. At E3, Schafer took the stage at the Xbox press conference to announce that Microsoft had acquired Double Fine. It's a tremendous get for Microsoft who's looking for accomplished developers to add variety to Xbox Game Pass.
