Bethesda & Interplay Fallout Settlement Nears?

An article on The Fallout wiki attempts to summarize the current state of the long-running legal dispute between interplay and Bethesda over the rights to the Fallout series of post-apocalyptic role-playing games. This includes a Q&A that mentions that this no longer includes any conflict over the "Fallout Trilogy." Here's that: "Both sides have previously agreed to drop this from the case (Bethesda raised it, and Interplay agreed). The case now just concerns future Fallout games." There's also this update stating that Bethesda has filed a motion to seal portions of the case, saying that this can often be an indication that an out-of-court settlement is in the works. Thanks Le Wastelander.

[Umm...you're wrong there. Brian Fargo was the guy who started Interplay and built it up to what it was. The Caen brothers took control much later (this was also easy to find by searching, though Interplay was already struggling a bit before then) and basically ran the company into the ground, along with Titus.

I stand corrected on Caen bros. being around during Interplays heyday. But to correct you, they had nothing to do with the downfall of Interplay. That had already happened which was why the company was sold to begin with, under Fargo's reign. Titus just put the nail in the coffin. Caen's have been trying to save the company and rebuild, which as I said before I have a ton of respect for.

But to save what? They don't have much of anything left. They're a nostalgia name and nothing more. They're better off getting eaten by a private equity firm than trying to burn more investor cash for no tangible benefit.
