Interplay and Vivendi come to blows

Distribution agreement ended

An interesting report on Gamesindustry.biz today informs us that Interplay have ended a distribution agreement with Vivendi, claiming that the publisher owes them money earnt from the recently released RPG Lionheart. The deal had to end after Vivendi refused to pay-up, and now legal action is a strong possibility.

With Interplay relying heavily on third-party publishers to distribute their various titles to an international audience, the company now suggest they will seek fresh agreements to distribute future titles - such as Dark Alliance 2 and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, both of which are due out before Christmas.
