THE BUZZ: Bethesda has settled its lawsuit with Interplay over Fallout MMO rights.

Interplay sold the Fallout franchise to Bethesda in 2007, then licensed back the rights to develop a Fallout MMO under predetermined conditions, which have been disputed for some time and led to Bethesda filing a lawsuit. The two companies have apparently reached a settlement on the day the case was scheduled to go to trial. Details are set to be revealed later this month.

EGM’s TAKE: This appears to show that one of the companies thought they couldn’t win in a court of law and so bowed to demands at the 11th hour.
