Bethesda and Interplay Settle Fallout MMO Suit

Posted on January 4, 2012 AT 06:24am

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.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
