Interplay has relaunched its company website which notes, among other things, that the company's Fallout MMO is still in development.
Codenamed "Project V13", Interplay has opened an Orange County, CA office for development of the game. It has also hired Chris Taylor, who was part of the original Fallout team, to be the lead system designer for the new game. Taylor joins several other former Fallout development team members who had been hired by Interplay previously.
Though Interplay sold the rights to Fallout to Bethesda last year, it retained the possibility to develop an online Fallout game. Interplay does need to raise at least $30 million in funding for the project before April of 2009, and Bethesda is allowed to keep close tabs on development -- or the company loses the MMO license.
