Interplay sold off nearly all the rights to the Fallout franchise to Bethesda Softworks. As a result the once mighty PC game publisher got a few million dollars in their pockets to keep working on their game plans. Two years later, however, the company has now admitted it need a new influx in funds.
In their newest annual report, Interplay states, "We continue to seek external sources of funding." The reason? Their annual report reveals they have no cash on hand and are $2.4 million in debt. This week it was revealed that Bethesda Softworks was about to pull Interplay's rights to make a Fallout MMO project. Interplay might have to sell off some of its other properties it still owns (MDK, Descent, and Earthworm Jim) in order to keep going.
