Interplay Entertainment announced today that it's in the process of selling its huge library of video game assets and intellectual property.
The expected sale covers over 70 titles, including iconic titles such as MDK, Earthworm Jim, Descent, Clayfighter and more.
"Interplay has entertained millions of players with its well-recognized games, including Earthworm Jim, Freespace, Giants, Kingpin, Messiah, MDK, Run Like Hell, Sacrifice, Battlechess, Clayfighter, Dark Alliance, and Descent. As game creators, we are proud of the entertainment these properties have provided over the years. With the proliferation of mobile, augmented reality, virtual reality and other new forms of consumption, we believe that consumers are ready to experience and interact with Interplay's characters, stories and game play in ways never possible before. We look forward to seeing how this unique portfolio of interactive entertainment icons will evolve for the worldwide audience," states Eric Caen, President of Interplay.
We would absolutely love to see Earthworm Jim return, perhaps THQ Nordic will pick up some of the IP listed?
