Bethesda and Interplay settlement finally reached
After a three-year legal battle, Bethesda and Interplay have finally reached a settlement.
Starting in 2009, the trial centered around Interplay's use of the Fallout franchise, with Bethesda having sued the company for copyright infringement, as well as breach of contract for a Fallout MMO.
While the recent trial has finally come to a close, there is no word yet on the nature of the settlement. However, according to the Fallout fansite Duck and Cover, details are expected to be released later this month. We'll keep you in the loop!
Now only if Macross and Robotech would settle their differences
One of my all time favourite franchises and yes, I did play Fallout's 1, 2 and tactics on their respective release years.
Can't wait for Fallout 4 with that Skyrim engine
Duck and Cover? No Mutants Allowed is a better site for Fallout. It's also older going back to 1998.
About time. This corporate bull has been delaying more Fallout games. Hopefully we will get a Fallout MMO with class based skills, dozens of enemy types and WoW style world structure (but with, you know, real combat)
More like Interplay found culpable in copyright infringement and then are sentenced to a million years in prison just to teach them a lesson. Also they are fined all the money they will ever have.
Disney Land is awesome.
I hope that's how it goes down.
Deal settled. MMO will be developed, Zenimax, owner of Bethesda buys Interplay. Bethesda and Interplay employees are both taking a trip to Disney Land to celebrate.
