The recent court case between Bethesda and Interplay has been of decent interest in the gaming industry considering its implications on an upcoming MMO title within the Fallout universe. While Interplay continues to stand strong that they have the rights to create the game, Bethesda is obviously on the other side of that picket fence.
Regardless, the team at Interplay is still hard at work on the game and has actually given Project V13 a release year. We’re just hoping they’re not getting a little ahead of themselves. Here is the official quote from the Duck and Cover forums.
Despite being embroiled in a lawsuit with Bethesda over the fate of their Fallout MMO, Interplay has updated their website to show that PV13 – the codename for the Fallout MMO – will be released in 2012.
If it will actually be released as a Fallout MMO and not a new IP depends on the outcome of the court case with Bethesda.
With Fallout New Vegas this year, it would be great to look forward to another Fallout title in a couple of years from now – especially one with other players to enjoy the wasteland with.
