[ Company -> Update ] - More info on Company: Interplay | More info on Game: Ballerium

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.

Majorem 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.

Wow, someone is stupid enough to trust IPLY, and they get burned.
What a shock.

Those screenshots stink like Warcraft. I strongly doubt a Blizzard-ripoff could save Interplay, probably a good call to stop funding.

Interplay is like a comatose 90 year old, they are past their expiry date but they just won't quit like that can of bean you have seen at the shops every week for the past two years, It's a pity really they used to be my favorite company. sigh

Well, the good thing is, you can throw shit at them while they're still alive.
