It's official! Black Isle Studios is still going strong and Interplay has not abandoned us! Hope lives, and it lives in the form of a press release (which I got in the mail)!
Thanks for your note and comments on Interplay, its games, and recent actions.
For some reason, there has been a high amount of speculation about Black Isle Studios and intellectual property surrounding the Fallout license. My only guess is that the source of these rumors must be an employee/employees who recently departed Interplay.
My response to these rumors is quite simple: Interplay management makes decisions and takes action on items relating to product, personnel, costs, revenue, and more on a day-to-day basis, none of which would be deemed material by SEC regulations, and none of which would merit a public announcement or press release.
Accordingly, if Interplay management had closed its most valuable development asset or chosen to abandon one of its most prized intellectual assets, the Company would have made an announcement.
As always, Interplay management is focused on delivering great, profitable games and maximum shareholder value.
Way to go Interplay and three cheers for the boys at Black Isle Studios! Caen and Molitor, please keep up the good work and may Fallout be as prosperous as always! We'll remember not to let a few dissidents (aka angry developers) ruin the fun for everyone else.
Thanks Mr.Teatime and keep the BIS support up. Hoorah!
