    I'd like to see Interplay have another shot at it, given that it's their IP in the first place... Fallout 3 was good put perhaps not all it could have been

    Anyone surprised or shocked by this needs their head checking.

    What company, in their right mind, is going to just give away a potentially massive revenue stream? Sure, most MMO's have fallen down when thrown against that infernal piece of **** WoW, but hey.

    The last thing Bethesda want, I expect, is for Interplay to launch a Fallout MMO, and it to become successful enough for Interplay to try and buy back the FO rights, and show FO3 up.

    I don't think there's room for a Fallout MMO and Fallout 4/5. Surely a lot of the gameplay would overlap? I wouldn't mind a Fallout MMO if it was done well, I don't think interplay could manage it however.

    I would LOVE to see Bethesda do a proper MMO based on F3. Everyone out for themselves.. with proper PVP.. would be quite amazing.

    Even if there is going to be a fallout MMO it's a long way off. :p

    I would like to see Interplay succeed and prosper ... not because of Fallout.

    I want Descent 4.

    I would like to see Beth to die slowly and painfull for the rape they made with FO3!

    Interplay need that that chance to show people that they are able to raise FO from the limbo that Beth put it on. Although i think a MMO would be a real challenge to a company that was pratically stinguished. But if they are willing to give up the fight, why they sold the rights for FO to save the company?

    I swear to god (even being agnostic) if i live anyewhere near Interplay i would gladly work for them for a low salary just to make this one game rock! So we could rise interplay again... Perhaps Black Isle too?...

    Have you played the beta of Interplay's FO3? It's complete garbage. I'm very glad that it went the way that it did, Interplay can concentrate on their other games, they've lost the Fallout series, too bad. If they really wanted it, they would've started on the MMO.
