Bioware & Interplay Make Nice on NWN
8:36 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
In what could be described as a curt press release, BioWare announced they have settled their legal dispute with Interplay over the publishing of their upcoming 3D role-playing game Neverwinter Nights.
In an interesting turn of events, Infogrames (owner of MacSoft) will now get the publishing rights to the game. While this may lead to the Mac version eventually being published by MacSoft, there's no information yet on how the final decisions might pan out.
Here's the press release:
BioWare and Interplay have reached a settlement ending the dispute between the companies. Per the agreement, Neverwinter Nights, developed by BioWare, will be published by Infogrames worldwide subject to certain pre-existing Interplay licenses. In addition other matters have been resolved to both parties’ mutual satisfaction.We're glad to see at least that there shouldn't be any more legal wranglings between the two companies over unpaid dues. Neverwinter Nights is expected out later this year for Mac, PC, and Linux.
