I don't really want a Fallout MMO but more Fallout would be great.

I was kinda happy that Interplay was going to do this, but I suppose Bethesda is alright, too.

DemonFowl There's no word Bethesda will make the MMO; this just means they have the right to if they decide to.

If a MMO would happen it would probably go to Zenimax's actual Online studio. As far as I recall, Bethesda have only shot down the idea of Zenimax's Online studio creating an Elder Scrolls MMO, which if that ever happened then Beth Soft would be the ones to step up and do it themselves.

As to this "mess" to be honest while there's 2 sides to the story and neither of them played fair, I am glad that this ruled in Beth Soft's favour. Why? Simply because Interplay burned out towards 2001, they even allowed the franchise to sit stale for almost 10 years and then they rode upon the success of Fallout 3 like they were the ones to create that success.

As to Interplay's little pet project, it was just a website and a spam of newsletters. I signed up, got "accepted" but never saw anything past that. Their newsletters consisted of mostly Harold quotes (The guy who mutated into a giant tree and spends most of his Fallout story tracking the wastelands until finally rooting himself into DC gathering followers)

Whether Interplay actually got something working or if I completely missed something I don't know but what I do know is that the MMO project always seemed to be a farce

I'd have to see some gameplay of a Fallout MMO before I get excited about it.

Glad its over, glad it went to bethesda, hope they do an mmo. I kind of always felt it would end this way, as it was getting closer and closer to the legal deadline, and interplay hasn't shown anything except the concept art from years ago. Its probably good they lost, as they havnt the greatest track record in the past 10 or so years eh? Bigger chance of them making a turd of a game rather than a hit like fallout 3. (Or even new vegas)

They couldn't because they were in the middle of a legal battle.
