Per this thread on No Mutants Allowed, it seems Interplay has not only failed to pay it's employees and it's rent for it's building, but they also haven't been paying their part for their employees' health benefits:

Interplay haven't been paying the health insurance payments for the last few months, it seems IPLY recently revealed this to their employees and several just left the meeting. They also told the employees that they really didn't have to come in this week, since there's a good chance they won't be paid.


Wow, that's pretty damned low right there. Not paying the employees is one thing, but the health insurance bit is dirt lame.

Also, per our forums in the IPLY Dead Pool thread, Eragon said:

There's supposed to be a big meeting at Interplay on Friday (4/23). The employees are going to find out if they are getting their backpay or not.

Stories going through the grapevine said that Herve tried to sell Interplay to Vivendi this week and got laughed out of the building for the price that he was asking.

I expect Interplay to close its doors tomorrow (4/23) at least for development, and file for bankruptcy soon after.


You're a bad, bad man Herve.
