Interplay Still Doing Fallout Online
Interplay is working out its debt load and ready to take on the Fallout Online project. Although Interplay sold the Fallout IP, to Bethesda, they have the exclusive license for the online Fallout game. With its financial woes put behind it Interplay is ready to look for funding for Fallout Online.
Interplay CEO Herve Caen said in a statement, “I am pleased with the progress the company has made, particularly with our debt load, which has improved from $59 million in December 2001 to less than $3 million today.”
“With that difficult period behind us, we are focused on securing funding for development of a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) based on the popular Fallout franchise. Along with our strategy of leveraging our existing portfolio of intellectual gaming properties, Fallout Online will play a key role in the future of Interplay.”
The Fallout MMORPG will feature the Fallout post Nuclear Apocalyptic world where the cold war, which lasted for the better part of the second half of last century, led to a nuclear disaster.
