Bethesda and Interplay settle their Fallout dispute

Result yet to be announced

The legal dispute between Interplay and Bethesda over who has the rights to produce a Fallout MMO has come to a conclusion.

A settlement has been reached in the trial over the issue but the result has not been formally announced as yet.

Both companies have been battling over the legal rights to a Fallout MMO since 2009 when Bethesda sued Interplay for copyright infringement over the Fallout MMO they had in development. The dispute saw Bethesda twice refused a preliminary injunction (in 2009 and again in 2011) allowing Interplay to continue their development of the title.

Interplay's future very much hinges on the outcome of this trial as it emerged last year that they would be unable to continue operating if they failed to secure a further round of funding.

Thanks Duck and Cover.
