Fallout 3!

Interplay Announces Fallout 3 Licensing Deal With Bethesda and Bethesda Softworks to Develop and Publish Fallout 3 (thanks Frans) are a pair of press releases announcing the continuation of the cult-classic Fallout series. Here's a bit:
Interplay Entertainment Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: IPLY - News) today reported it has entered into a licensing agreement that will allow Bethesda Softworks to develop and publish Fallout 3, a sequel to the highly popular Fallout role-playing game franchise. The deal awards Bethesda exclusive worldwide rights to publish the title for PC, console, and handhelds with the rights to develop and publish future sequels. Interplay retains all online gaming rights for the Fallout franchise, as well as ownership of the Fallout intellectual property. The company announced last month its intent to enter into Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming with titles including Fallout.

Commenting on the announcement, Interplay Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Herve Caen said, "This is a good agreement for both companies and for gamers. Although we had a high level of interest in licensing Fallout among several parties, we are most impressed by Bethesda's execution of role-playing titles. Bethesda is an ideal steward of the Fallout franchise."

"We're extremely excited about this opportunity and what it means both for Bethesda and for Fallout fans around the world," said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. "Fallout is one of the great RPG franchises. Millions of Fallout games have been sold worldwide, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of a Fallout 3 title.

I was stoked about this news, until I read the post that this will be a cross-platform game.

Uh oh.

Let's leave aside the technical constraints that consoles force on otherwise great PC games (hello Thief:DS). The part that concerns me more is that the mature content of the original Fallout simply doesn't match with the younger demographic of console players.

Anyone care to bet against me that Bethesda, in an effort to maximize sales across platforms, will remove mature content to earn a Teen ESRB rating?

Crap.
