Interplay - Website Launched
Interplay has launched a new wesbsite, complete with forums - although gone are the glory days of the old Interplay boards. The official announcement touts the hiring of Chris Taylor, although the mention of "other original Fallout team members on staff at Interplay’s internal game studio" is news to me:
Interplay launches new web site; adds Chris Taylor to growing development team.
BEVERLY HILLS, CA, Setember 22, 2008 – Interplay Entertainment Corp. (OTC BB:IPLY) announced today the launch of an all-new web site at www.interplay.com.
The site, developed over the last several months, is designed to improve the company’s communication with customers, investors, and partners. The new site includes forums based on past and future Interplay games, a customer support section, detailed information on the company and its products, and much more.
The company also announced that Chris Taylor, a game designer who was a part of the original Fallout game development team at Interplay in 1994, has rejoined the company. Taylor will serve as Lead System Designer for “Project V13,” the working title of Interplay’s next generation Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMO) currently in development. Taylor joins other original Fallout team members on staff at Interplay’s internal game studio, which recently opened an office in Irvine, Calif. Additional development staff members continue to be hired as the project ramps-up.
Edit: Forum posters point out that Jason Anderson has been the creative director for a while (duh), making Taylor the second original Fallout dev.
