Interplay Wins An Interesting Award…

The guys at ShackNews have issued their “Warshaw Awards” for 2003, giving Interplay “The Save Costs by Killing Off Your Best Asset Award” after they closed down Black Isle Studios. Funny stuff…

The Save Costs by Killing Off Your Best Asset Award
Winner: Interplay

Last week it was revealed that Interplay (who for reasons unknown to me is still alive and kicking), has canceled Fallout 3 and dismantled what remained of the once great Black Isle Studios. Instead, Fallout fans can look forward to Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, a game that is nearly identically named to Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, but is in fact totally different, and will be released for PS2 and Xbox. Platforms, it should be pointed out, which the earlier Fallout titles have never been released on. Meanwhile PC gamers, who are the real market for the franchise, have nothing to look forward to. Good job, Interplay. Good luck pulling out of that financial nosedive.
