Interplay still working on Fallout MMOG

fallout mmogDespite some heavy financial struggles for the past couple of years, Interplay is still keen on getting a Fallout MMOG launched sometime in the future. In their second quarter 2007 financial results, the company had a net income of $5.46 million, which is up 256% from $2.06 million during the same period last year.

Net revenue was up as well, at $5.81 million, which is largely attributed to the sale of the rights to their Fallout franchise to Bethesda Softworks back in April for $5.75 million. Hopefully Interplay can continue increasing their revenue or else they’ll be dead in the water.

Herve Caen, CEO and Chairman of Interplay, said, "I am pleased with the progress the company has made, particularly with our debt load, which has improved from $59 million in December 2001 to less than $3 million today. With that difficult period behind us, we are focused on securing funding for development of a Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG) based on the popular Fallout franchise. Along with our strategy of leveraging our existing portfolio of intellectual gaming properties, Fallout Online will play a key role in the future of Interplay."

Lastly, Interplay revealed they need at least $30 million for funding their Fallout MMOG. Do you folks think a Fallout MMOG is wise? With Fallout 3 on the way from Bethesda, I imagine that would spark some new interest into the series, especially since being critically acclaimed back in the late 1990s.
