How low the mighty has fallen…Interplay Entertainment was one of the biggest publishers of the 80’s and 90’s. Founded by Brian Fargo and owning legendary studios such as Black Isle, Interplay is home to classics such as Wasteland, The Bard’s Tale and Fallout. The publisher is nothing but a shell of its former self these days, devoid of many original employees and IPs, including Fargo.
But it looks like things are about to change. The official Twitter account of Interplay has posted that “Something new is coming…” and links to a webpage which has the words “coming soon”. We have no idea what this means at this point. But it’s a safe bet that the once publishing giant is trying to re-establish themselves in the industry once again. Maybe they’re bringing back one of their classic IPs or it could be a new IP entirely. We’ll have to wait and see.
We reported earlier that Brian Fargo was looking into buying back Interplay if The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep sells 2 million copies. But we’re sure that’s unlikely, at least at this point. We’ll let you know if anything pops up in our radar.
