Beth vs Interplay Catfight Update
Interview - posted by VentilatorOfDoom on Fri 21 January 2011, 12:00:37Tags: Bethesda Softworks
VG247 conducted a phone interview with Pete Hines last night, reports NMA.
"We own the rights to the MMO,” he said when asked if Caen’s comments were true.
He continued: “We own the rights to everything Fallout. The licence is ours. Fallout belongs to us. That’s what I’ll clarify.
“Beyond that, I’m not commenting on anybody else’s comments. It’s a legal matter. A specific MMO or project or any of that stuff, the lawyers are all going to sort it out.”
Additionally, there's an interview with Eric Caen at Eurogamer. Fallout 6 could be ours.
"We sold the Fallout IP to Bethesda in exchange for a certain amount of cash and the right to do the Fallout MMO," he said. "If they refuse to let us do the game, then the sale of the IP is terminated, and they will be allowed to do only one more Fallout, 5.
"But in that case, the IP will come back to us, and of course, we will complete our work and release Fallout MMO."
