FASA Studio (formerly FASA Interactive) was a video game developer created as a spin off from FASA Corporation, which was founded in 1980 by Jordan Weisman and L. Ross Babcock. The studio went on to develop many successful video games for Microsoft Game Studios before it was closed in 2007 by Microsoft.[1]

A few weeks after closure, Microsoft had licensed the rights to the FASA catalog to Jordan Weisman's new company Smith & Tinker.[2]
