Bethesda wins out in the Fallout MMO rights ownership row
A court has ruled in favour of Bethesda in the litigation filed against Interplay over who owns the rights to produce an MMO based on the Fallout series.
A resolution has finally come in the disagreement which has now been going on since 2009 which saw several exchanges between Bethesda and the struggling publisher Interplay.
The terms of the settlement have rendered the previous license held by Interplay for a Fallout MMO null and void with the rights reverting back to Bethesda. Bethesda's parent ZeniMax is to pay Interplay 2 million USD as consideration in the settlement and Interplay retain the merchandising rights to sell Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics until December 2013.
It is unclear what will become of Interplay now that they have lost this court battle given that they have been in financial trouble for some time now.
