Fallout Online to Launch in 2012
Fallout Online has been under the radar for a while, except for that whole court case with Bethesda.
While they aren’t releasing very much from the game, which Interplay president Eric Caen says is due to the aforementioned court case, he did say this:
I can’t say too much. What I can say is that everyone who is registered is getting a newsletter every five or six weeks. The content is not a typical newsletter with a lot of technical information; it’s letters from NPCs about what they’re experiencing.
We’re giving a lot of hints about the future of the game. We have a beta scheduled for 2012, with the commercial launch in the second half of 2012. We have 90 people working on it. Even in January 2009, you were already able to move across the world.
It look like Interplay is on track to get Fallout Online out on time, for the moment. Of course, all of this presupposes that the court case they’re embroiled in is concluded in a timely fashion, and in their favor. For that, we’ll just have to wait and see.
