The legal situation between Bethesda Softworks and Interplay continues. Bethesda purchased rights to the Fallout franchise from Interplay in 2007 and later sued the company citing trademark infringement and attempted to terminate its right to make a Fallout MMO. Bethesda threatened legal action after certain production conditions were not met for the MMO project that goes under the code name “Project V13.”

Because of the lawsuit some of the concept art for the game has been released. Members of the Interplay development team have now posted concept art for Project V13 in the Interplay forums. The revealed concept art features a factory, desert, survivor portrait, and graveyard.

The following was posted by a member of the development team: “Keep in mind that this is concept art. It's not finalized art, but it will give you a feel for what we are aiming for with V13. (And I'll keep bugging the lawyers to release more art when we can... I'm pretty excited that we're finally able to show you some of the work that we've been doing up until now.)”
