Default Interplay - Project V13 Gets Official

We haven't really been following Interplay's escapades with Project: V13 / Fallout Online but Lemonhead writes in to point out the announcement of a formal arrangement with developer Masthead:
INTERPLAY AND MASTHEAD STUDIOS FINALIZE AGREEMENT TO DEVELOP MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE GAME

LOS ANGELES, CA, January 21, 2010 — Interplay Entertainment Corp. (OTC BB:IPLY) announced today that the Company has signed definitive agreements with Masthead Studios concerning the development of Interplay’s post-apocalyptic Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG), code named “Project: V13.”
Project: V13 has been under development at Interplay since November 2007 by some of the original Fallout® creators. Masthead joined the project in early 2009 and development continues under Interplay’s direction and control. Project: V13 will utilize the proprietary tools and MMOG technology Masthead developed for its “Earthrise” project.
Commenting on the announcement, Interplay Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Herve Caen said, “Masthead’s technology is impressive and perfect for our Project: V13. Its team is passionate to bring our vision and game play to the market. This MMOG will have many unique features that we will disclose before launch of the public Beta in 2012.”
Masthead Studios President Atanas Atanasov said, “Project: V13 incorporates many creative and technological innovations. We believe it will be a unique experience. Our technology will continue to evolve in order to realize all the extraordinary content and features Interplay has designed.”
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

I'm trying hard to find a world less suitable for MMO than the Fallout world…

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.

Chris Taylor works on V13 as some kind of lead designer, I'm not 100% sure about his role though.

Jason Andersson was on board for a while but left in march 2009 to work for inXile.

This game would appear to be in direct competition with Mastheads own mmorpg in development. Never heard of it before, but checked out the site and is described as "post-apocalyptic," "skill-based," involves "upgradeable power armor, " etc. Not sure how this relationship would work unless they are scrapping their own game.

I rather assume that both are the same thing.

Yep, I'd bet they've re-branded their existing game.

Sounds likely. But a bit odd, if so, that the site is still clearly all about a game called Earthrise with very different post-apocalyptic take. If they indeed have been working on Fallout mmorpg since "early 2009," one would think they would have already done something about that site if they were rebranding.
