Looks as though the court dealings between Interplay and Bethesda over the Fallout MMO are not over just yet.
According to a post on Interplay’s forums, the firm’s in-house has said that a hearing in the case is still “weeks away”.
You will not often hear from me, but as Interplay’s in-house lawyer I feel the need to set the record straight here…
The Court has not ruled on Bethesda’s Motion for Prelminary Injunction. A proposed order was filed with our Opposition to the Motion, but that is not the same as an Order of the Court. The hearing is weeks away. Interplay will issue an official statement if there is a material development that needs to be addressed. Please do not rely on rumor or speculation.
In the meantime, we all appreciate your enthusiasm and support.
Meanwhile, a new piece of concept art for the MMO was released, which is what you see above, and there is another one through here.
