Interplay is getting back into games

interplaylogoInterplay released its Q3 financial earnings today and reported a net income of $497,000, which is down from $1.6 million during the same period last year. In addition, the company reported a net revenue of $47,000.

Even though figures are down, Interplay is pretty keen on getting back into the gaming business. In the financial report, Herve Caen, chairman and CEO of Interplay, revealed that his company is currently revitalizing its in-house game development studio.

"As we are working to secure funding for the development of a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) based on the popular Fallout franchise, we are at the same time exploring ways to leverage our impressive portfolio of gaming properties through sequels and various development and publishing arrangements."

Don’t forget, Interplay is still working on its Fallout MMOG, along with planning another MMOG; in-fact, they’ve already hired former Fallout game designer Jason Anderson to serve as creative director on the unannounced game project.

Taking a brief walk in gaming history; Interplay published many acclaimed games during the late 1980’s and throughout the 1990’s, including Decent, Baldur’s Gate, Fallout, Alone in the Dark (U.S.), Clayfighter, MDK, Planescape: Torment and Sacrifice. After financial troubles and even an eviction notice in 2004, Interplay continues to carry on to this day.
