[ Company -> Update ] - More info on Person: Jason D. Anderson | More info on Company: Interplay

In their latest SEC filing, Interplay revealed that they are

  • Re-opening their in-house games studio, and hiring Jason Anderson of Fallout and Troika fame as the creative director of an as yet unannounced MMO
  • Still working on securing funding for a seperate project, their Fallout MMO
  • "Exploring ways to leverage their mpressive portfolio of gaming properties through sequels and various development and publishing arrangements"

Although they've sold off they're most valuable asset, the Fallout license, Interplay still holds the rights to several impressive games, such as Earthworm Jim, Descent, Sacrifice and MDK (Mother's Day Kisses).
It should be safe to assume that the MMO being developed by Jason Anderson will be using one of these licenses. My money's on Descent, but I would personally prefer another Sacrifice game.

I bet you Jason Anderson was living on the streets and that is why he accepted the job.

I believe it's one of the few franchises Interplay still owns. Probably because nobody wanted it....

ahahah I said the same thing the first time I saw the pic.

By the way that image was taken just before Herve took all those goodies to his home, when he was evicted from the old interplay headquarters, including the original DeathClaw model.

The image is from NMA, Corith, a former Interplay employee that became Herve's worst nightmare, got it, I just stole it.

I do that sometimes, sshhhh brushteeth

I think the most valuable asset Interplay owns today is Herve's moustache.


Also, pic of the 'week'.

Good idea!

One thing though, he licensed Earthworm Jim to another company earlier on, but he seems to have snatched it back without much explaining being given.

I wonder what happened with that. monkey icon_dance

Maybe the company went bankrupt?

That seems to happen to companies Herve touches. Remember that one MMO game Interplay was financing?

Maybe he'll try to corner ZeniMax Media, as well.

In 5 years time, he has taken over the company and amidst the smoldering ruins of once glorious franchises stands out an optimistic little Frenchman with a grin. herve
