It's become a regular occurence: Interplay tries to do something, everyone says it's not going to work, Interplay fails. In the latest example of this formula, Interplay loses possibly the only thing that could have saved them: Ballerium.
regretably announces today that development of its MMO-RTS Ballerium has
again come to a full stop, as a result of an agreement signed with
Interplay's (IPLYE.OB) in December 2004 that could not be realized,
apparently due to Interplay's inability to raise the required funding to turn Majorem's technology into a game.
The agreement, signed in december was to see Interplay provide Majorem with
the means to launch Ballerium this summer.
As a result of this new
situation, Majorem now considers to accept new offers for the licensing
of its MMO-RTS technology (and an almost ready MMO-RTS game) to
interested third parties.
Everyone told you so, Herve.
