The legal stoush between Bethesda and Interplay over the rights to certain aspects of the Fallout universe, which has been dragging on for years, has finally been settled, according to a report on Fallout fansite Duck & Cover.


While the actual details of the settlement are yet to be released - they're expected to be made public sometime later this month - it's still good news for fans of the franchise, as it can hopefully put a distracting and messy peripheral issue to bed.

The battle centred around the rights to a Fallout MMO, which series creators Interplay claim they held. Current Fallout publishers Bethesda, citing a number of failed milestones as part of the deal, disagreed.

Hopefully this means a return to the isometric Fallout games I love. Haven't played New Vegas but I hate FO3 nowhere near as good as the original and the reason why I never bothered with New Vegas. I know some of the original team worked on it so I may get it eventually once the GOTY edition is out (or w/e it's called)
