[ Company -> Article ] - More info on Person: Herve Caen | More info on Company: Interplay | More info on Game: Fallout: Online

It seems that Interplay managed to reduce its debts by selling the license to Bethesda. Does it mean we can expect Fallout: Online? Here's what Herve Caen (chairman and CEO) 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.

But if they ruin F3, will FO Online be any better? If they do at least a DECENT job w/ F3, will FO Online be decent as well?

In my opinion MMO option for the series is as good as FPP, VATS and lack of shots in the head. It can be popular, it can't be Fallout.

Unfortunately I do not have too much time and I can't spend it all here at DAC. I just do what I can to contribute to DAC by posting news but I don't think I will write at forums regularly.

I have yet to see an MMO that I liked. They need a game with no whiny little kids and their whinyer parents playing it and taking all the fun mature content out.

I guess now we'll just have to wait and see how they implement their idea. If it's anything like multiplayer was on Oblivion it'll be terrible. If it's like WoW I think it will be terrible. Would battles be turned based or first person live action, etc etc???
