In 1982, Adhaminto Boone had to close down his small games company, Boone Corporation. Brian Fargo, who was vice-president of R&D, took along some of the senior programmers to found Interplay productions. The small outfit published several titles, but finally struck gold with The Bard's Tale and Wasteland, which gave them the financial backing they needed to start publishing their own titles, instead of relying on EA as their publisher.They started publishing games from other companies in 1988, but it wasn't until 1993 that they managed another hit, and started the "Descent" series, first produced by Parallax Software. Starting in 1992, they were noted for pumping out a few Star Trek games, and in 1997 they hit the motherlode with Fallout and MDK, followed by Baldur's Gate in 1998. Boldened by their success, Interplay went public that same year, and changed the name to "Interplay Entertainment Corp".

|Fallout Wiki: Project V13 portal|
The first incarnation, also called Fallout Online, was to be a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Interplay Entertainment and Masthead Studios. Among its developers were Chris Taylor and Mark O'Green, two of the creators of the original Fallout.
On January 10, 2012 the game was put on hiatus after a legal dispute which restored the development and publishing rights to Bethesda Softworks.
After a long period where its status was unclear, Interplay and Black Isle Studios announced a new Project V13 on 20 December 2012, this time a strategy based RPG, its development to prototype stage would be funded by a crowdsource campaign.
On this wiki, the coverage of this game is in its previous "Fallout Online" version; unless indicated otherwise it should be assumed that any reference to the game or any article on the game refers to this version.
Interplay is the company that published Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. It was the owner of the Fallout franchise before it was sold to Bethesda Softworks and is currently working on Project V13.
