All‚??s fair in love and war. Fortunately, however, no one had to break out the apocalyptic nuke salvos this time around, as Bethesda and original Fallout owner Interplay have finally reached a settlement in their tooth-and-nail struggle over Fallout Online.

After Bethesda whipped out the legal equivalent of a Rock-It Launcher and fired off everything from a (failed) development-halting injunction (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/10/27/fallout-mmo-legal-wrangles-fall-in-favour-of-interplay-for-now/) to a claim that Interplay could use Fallout‚??s name and nothing else (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/282980/interplay-hits-back-at-bethesdas-absurd-fallout-mmo-claims/), Duck and Cover (http://www.duckandcover.cx/forums/viewtopic.php?t=25887) claims that the two have declared a cease fire. The site cites a ‚??source‚?? that took part in the hearings and claims that we‚??ll learn of Fallout Online‚??s fate later this month. Fingers crossed for good news, but given Interplay‚??s recent agonized-wail-inducing financial woes (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/303801/fallout-mmo-under-threat/), I wouldn‚??t count on it.
