Company News - posted by Exitium on Thu 27 January 2005, 04:34:25Tags: Feargus Urquhart; Obsidian Entertainment
Former Black Isle Studios member Corith states in this thread on No Mutants Allowed some very interesting details about Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart's purchase of all the graphic textures and other art assets on all the original Fallout titles (minus FOBOS) before Interplay was shut down.

Corith writes: To the best of knowledge, they were. Although I believe that Fergus bought the graphic textures (and some other assets) in early June 2004, before Interplay was shut down.
He bought all the textures that Black Isle created.
No thanks to anyone for not keeping me in the loop to this development. I had to rip the news off the front page of Duck and Cover. Like a ninja.
