IPLY sinks to new depths of low

PC.IGN is reporting some stuff that Interplay wants you to believe in this article about the recent closing of Black Isle and the cancelling of Fallout 3. Here's a taste of the horsecrap:
Which brings us up to our new guest star, Interplay's investor relations department, with their official denial of the stories. "For the record," says Interplay, "Black Isle Studios remains open with projects pending, the status of Fallout 3 is under review, and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel will ship on January 13."
As far as this "under review" status for Fallout 3, Interplay had this to say: "Fallout lives...now that is not to say we have a new Fallout PC game coming in the next few months, but management will do what it can to maximize the intellectual property it owns and the fan base it has, within the financial parameters it must operate."
So, let's recap.. Interplay decided to do a demo review on Fallout 3, then shortly afterwards decides to fire all the PC people at Black Isle that were working on Fallout 3. Now they want us to believe that Black Isle is still operating and that Fallout 3 is still possible? Give me a break. Fallout 3 is as dead as a hammer at this point, and Black Isle exists as little more than a logo they can slap on a game in the hopes that it'll add credibility to it.
