The lawsuit over the Fallout MMO between Bethesda and Interplay continues, after all. Bethesda’s VP of Marketing and PR Pete Hines breaks the news, saying the legal disagreements between the companies are “still ongoing” and not resolved.
“It is a minor procedural thing that took place, not a dropping of the lawsuit,” he told Kotaku, referring to the news earlier today about Bethesda dropping an appeal against Interplay.
“The bottom line is it’s an ongoing legal matter, it’s in no way, shape or form done,” Hines continued. “We’re going to let the process play out in the courts, which is what we’ve said all along, but beyond that I can’t give specifics as to procedures. That’s not my domain.”
The entire legal case is about Bethesda trying to prevent Interplay from selling a three-game package — Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics — under the The Fallout Trilogy bundle name, and stopping Interplay from developing a Fallout MMO, which currently exists as Project V13. With this news, it would appear we’re back to where we were 24 hours ago.
