Interplay screws up AGAIN
 
Interplay screws up AGAIN [ Game -> Update ]
Posted by Mr. Teatime Thu 05 May 2005, 12:06 AM
More info on Company: Interplay | More info on Game: Ballerium

Feeling down? Let's all laugh at Interplay. I spotted this post on Raging Bull:

Ballerium website: On the Ballerium website a company employee said that Interplay was going to be taking over the reigns for developing Ballerium and that Majorem is not going to be working on it any longer. The poster also said that it was going to be a long time before the beta goes live again and that Interplay is not going bankrupt.

I did some investigating and found the post he was talking about:

I have heard through the developers community that this game is dead. INterplay is in BK and the original guys(from Isreal) are no longer involved. If anyone has more input would be nice to hear if this is true or not.

...

As for Interplay, that may or may not be true. But as for the Majorem developers, that is not true. PsyKill is one of the original lead developers and continues to work on the game, Info is original CEO of Majorem and continues to manage the company/game.
However, the rest of the developers were forced to quit (since they were not willing to work voluntarily like Info and PsyKill, when Majorem's financial backer went bankrupt).

So if these rumours are to be believed, Interplay has, much to everyone's surprise, failed to get any money and killed off Ballerium. I'd gloat, but... wait, I'll gloat.

Ha Ha Ha Ha.

Feel a bit sorry for the developers that Interplay appear to have screwed over again, but they must have seen it coming.
