I'm not entirely informed of the situation, but it seems to me that a *New Fallout game* will not even enter development until the legal struggle between Bethesda and Interplay has been resolved. That's probably stupidly obvious, or perhaps even completely wrong. Views? Please realize I am constructing this observation of mine from a very rough and non-through overlook of current information. So no flaming or insults. I wish only to know the gist of what is going on.

Do we know enough yet to say that Fallout MMO is PC only - DCU wasn't.
Whilst I am inclined to agree with you on the Lawsuit thing, Bethesda do not have to wait. Win Lose or Draw they get to make 1 more game at least. That said, Bethesda may choose to poison the well if they lose - I doubt this would be as malicious as to make a terrible game that ruins the reputation, but could just end things in a way that makes a timeline consistent sequel next to impossible.

Typically, MMO only really work on PC's. I cannot bring to memory a single MMO ever more for the current generation of consoles, much less a successful and genuinely good one. I doubt Bethesda would do something as malicious as to trash the series though. Fallout is a cash cow for them, and to do it badly would only hurt business, not mention garner a large amount of negative PR for the company in the long run. I can see them ending things in a way that makes a sequel nearly impossible though. (Actually, I personally doubt they would do this, but it IS possible) However, couldn't Interplay just skip a hundred years in the future from the ending of Bethesda's last game and make up a back story history to explain away all the incongruities?
