4/2/2009 10:02:00 PM
So they don't come right out and say it but what else is Interplay working on? Well today they have announced that they will be developing a MMOG code named Project" V13 which has been in development since November of 2007. Yeah, why don't you guys just say Fallout MMO. I doubt I'm wrong but to me there's no need to go all secret about it since Interplay's has retained the rights for an MMO Fallout and I don't think they would be working on something else with the recent success of Fallout 3. So, any takers that we see this thing at E3?
