On Fallout 3

The RPGDot Forums (thanks Reijo Niemi) recap the mentions made of Fallout 3 during Interplay's conference call:
On Fallout 3, Caen said "Fallout 3 is not actively being developed right now and we will have an announcement soon on that project". Later, several questions were posed by an investor. The exchange went as follows, starting with a question clarifying whether IPLAY would develop or publish Fallout 3:

Caen: We plan on publishing Fallout 3

Caller: Most likely it will be done through an external studio, correct?

Caen: Correct.

I so much wanted to like Arcanum. The idea was cool, but yeah, the execution was awful. The interface was all heavy, the combat blew goats....I dont really have faith that Troika could do justice to FO3....

For some reason, I dont see IPLY giving controll of development to Obsidian....wayyyyyy too many egos would get in the way....how would it look to the higher-up to lose a bunch of your folks then contract out the company they started to do work for you. It would rub too many poeple the wrong way..

Then again, I'm wrong with near 100% accuracy....
