Interplay Facing Bankruptcy, Fallout Online At Risk

We all remember the lengthy battle between Interplay, the original holders of the Fallout License and Bethesda, the new holders of the license over the fate of Fallout Online that’s been going for near two years now. Fans wanting a real trek through an apocolyptic wasteland may be in for disappointment from the latest news out of Interplay.

 

Recently, Interplay released a financial report that showed losses of over a million dollars, and a total deficit of £2.5 million dollars, with the possibility of bankruptcy mention a few times. While Interplay have filed for bankruptcy in the past, there’s no guarantee for if the developer will die or be reborn. What is also unclear is if the rights to the MMO will fall to Bethesda due to the legal battle, and if it does, that they will rescue the ailing title. If Interplay does get the funding together though, the newest addition to an extensive list of MMO’s is slated for a 2012 release.
