Default Bethesda Softworks - Fallout Bought Outright

April 13th, 2007, 00:56
Bethsoft's original deal with Interplay for Fallout was a limited license, with Interplay maintaining ownership of the IP. Word via Briosafreak's Fallout 3 Blog today is that Interplay sold the entire Fallout IP to Bethsoft on April 4th for $5.7m:
Under the APA, the Company sold all of its rights to the IP to Bethesda for a total amount of $5,750,000.00 payable to the Company, subject to various conditions, in three cash installments.[…]
In a complete reversal, Interplay now has a license from Bethsoft to develop a Fallout MMORPG. Hit the link for the full post and a link to the original SEC filing.
