As Gaming Today surmised back in December, Interplay is also seeking funding for an MMO based is popular on Fallout video game.

Interplay Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Herve Caen said, “2007 set the foundation for our growth strategy. Going forward, we have the vision, unique intellectual property, and low debt and operational costs to help us pursue financing for our various projects. Our new Website will streamline our ability to communicate development progress with the public, share brand information with the fans and support our customers.”

OK, the important part here is Interplay, the originator of the Fallout franchise is actually going to use its license to develop a Fallout MMOG. You can bet the members of No Mutants Allowed forum are celebrating. Gaming Today will give you more details as they come to light.

Good I hope its a first person FPS or like WoW. Not because I care, but because it’ll piss off the douchebags who flamed the bethsoft forums like a bunch of whiny children.

Do Fallout Fans really care about this? Wasn’t Fallout 1 & 2 Great because of Black Isle? Interplay are the publisher not the developer, all the black isle talent left long ago.

Personaly If a Publisher has had that much trouble staying out of debt I don’t think making an mmo (most expensive computer game project there is) would be a smart move….and the people who would invest money in it would be even less smart.
