I've already raised this point before, but they would "waste their effort" because they can make an IP gain a higher profile. Before Bethesda revived the Fallout name with Fallout 3, no one really knew about the Fallout license outside of the "hardcore" RPG fan base, and even then it was largely forgotten by most. So yes, now the Fallout setting is a valuable RPG property, but it sure wasn't what I would call "high profile" before Bethesda's work on Fallout 3 outside of a relatively niche fan base. I'm sure that if they were to attempt the same sort of revival again on a forgotten IP, they could repeat the success that occurred with bringing back the Fallout name.
