Interplay Comments On GalleonFollowing SCis announcement earlier this month that it has signed the Xbox version of Galleon, Interplay has today released a statement concerning the games sale. "In development for more than three years, Galleon no longer fits with Interplays strategy going forward," said Herve Caen, chairman and CEO of Interplay. "Heading into 2004, Interplay is facing critical decisions about its future strategy, its resources, and its product lineup. The companys development resources will be streamlined and focused on high profile game titles we have planned for release next year and in the near term, including Exalted, an action/adventure title now in development." SCi plans to release the Xbox version of Galleon in spring 2004. The UK-based publisher owns the worldwide rights to the game but since it doesnt actually distribute outside the UK, will be announcing partners for other territories in the near future.
