Our old favourite Interplay, the undead zombie of a company that just won't let itself be put down, continues its lumbering lurch forward in its quest for legitimacy with the release of a flash-bang spanking new website.
Here's the press release:
The site, developed over the last several months, is designed to improve the company’s communication with customers, investors, and partners. The new site includes forums based on past and future Interplay games, a customer support section, detailed information on the company and its products, and much more.
The company also announced that Chris Taylor, a game designer who was a part of the original Fallout game development team at Interplay in 1994, has rejoined the company. Taylor will serve as Lead System Designer for “Project V13,” the working title of Interplay’s next generation Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMO) currently in development. Taylor joins other original Fallout team members on staff at Interplay’s internal game studio, which recently opened an office in Irvine, Calif. Additional development staff members continue to be hired as the project ramps-up.
They even have forums and have opened a new office in Orange County dedicated to the new MMO which it assures us is headed by the "original creators of Fallout". Maybe a failed MMO will finally kill them once and for all?
