GameTap Signs Interplay's Fallout, MDK and Descent

GameTap expanded its partnership with Interplay to include multi-year worldwide rights for the company’s titles, such as Fallout, MDK and Descent, to be available for download in its online store and for subscription, as well as free ad-supported, play.

“Interplay has been and continues to be a great partner of GameTap,” said Ricardo Sanchez, vice president of content and creative director for GameTap. “By expanding on our previous deal, GameTap will now feature more of Interplay’s top titles including their widely successful Fallout titles.”

As part of this expansive agreement, GameTap will now feature additional Interplay titles, including the critically acclaimed Fallout, Descent and MDK. New and previously featured titles, such as the Earthworm Jim series, will be added to the subscription service, GameTap’s ad-supported website, and also sold in GameTap’s online digital retail storefront.

“GameTap continues to be a great partner for Interplay by offering expanded opportunities for revenue after the initial retail window has closed,” said HervĂ© Caen, Interplay Chief Executive Officer. “This licensing deal is a good example of how Interplay is leveraging its library of intellectual properties. The company will continue to either reinvent some of those properties by developing them into new versions or sequels, or by partnering with an existing leader like GameTap, where the original titles can live on.”
