are continuing to tussle in court
over the proposed Fallout
MMO, and you may have heard news earlier this week
about Interplay's triumph over Bethesda
in regards to a preliminary injunction. Well, don't get too excited just yet, because unfortunately it looks like reports got misinterpreted.
Interplay's in-house lawyer jumped in today
to correct the rumors that have been flying around for the past few days at various Fallout
fansites. Read what he had to say after the jump.
You will not often hear from me, but as Interplay's in-house lawyer I feel the need to set the record straight here...
The Court has not ruled on Bethesda's Motion for Prelminary Injunction. A proposed order was filed with our Opposition to the Motion, but that is not the same as an Order of the Court. The hearing is weeks away. Interplay will issue an official statement if there is a material development that needs to be addressed. Please do not rely on rumor or speculation.
In the meantime, we all appreciate your enthusiasm and support.
Thanks to Chris for setting everyone straight, and we'll continue to keep an eye out for any news coming from Interplay or Bethesda.
