Interplay/Fallout Online Woes

A new SEC filing from Interplay indicates the company's financial woes continue, according to Gamasutra, and their continued operations are in jeopardy without an infusion of new capital soon. This threatens development of Fallout Online, the MMORPG at the center of an ongoing legal battle with Bethesda Softworks, as word is these money troubles may force them to cut their staff, which currently only consists of 11 employees (seven of whom are developers), or sell off further assets. Word is Interplay was down to $3,000.00 in cash on hand by the end of last year, compared with accumulated operating deficits of over $2.8 million, which includes unpaid compensation to the board of directors as well as back taxes and penalties. "We currently have some obligations that we are unable to meet without generating additional income or raising additional capital," the company warned stockholders. "If we cannot generate additional income or raise additional capital in the near future, we may become insolvent and/or be made bankrupt and/or may become illiquid or worthless."

Is anyone surprised I mean come on. Interplay needs to give up the ghost & return that portion of the IP back to Bethesda. I'm a huge Fallout fan & this stuff just saddens me about my favorite IP.
