Interplay Not Content With Fallout Court Case

Just yesterday we reported that Interplay successfully defended its rights to publish the Fallout Trilogy bundle and continue development on Project V13, a Fallout MMO. Today Interplay has issued a statement claiming that they are displeased with the Bethesda’s interference with their business and are pursuing counter-claims.

Interplay believes they were wronged by Bethesda’s interloping with the Fallout franchise, claiming that the company breached their contract. Supposedly Bethesda propositioned the games in the Fallout Trilogy to other publishers, telling them Interplay didn’t have the license. Shady business if it’s true.

In the statement, Interplay says they will continue to “defend its rights and pursue its Counter-Claims against Bethesda, including its claims for Breach of Contract, Tortious Interference with Prospective Economic Advantage, Rescission, Accounting and Declaratory Relief seeking an award of damages and other relief."

Just when we thought it was all over, a second battle sparks. If this were a street brawl, this would be the part where one thug wrestles the nail-bat away from the other and readies for retaliation.

Any of you taking sides?
