Interplay, Bioware End Legal Dispute Over Neverwinter Nights

After four months of legal disputes between BioWare and Interplay, the two companies announced that they have settled their differences over the publishing rights to Bioware's upcoming RPG, Neverwinter Nights.
The two companies squared off against one another last September, when Bioware filed suit against Interplay to stop the publisher from sublicensing the game's distribution. Later in November, Bioware announced that it was canceling its publishing agreement with Interplay. According to a statement issued by both companies today, Neverwinter Nights will be published worldwide by Infogrames, "subject to certain pre-existing Interplay licenses." "We are very pleased with the outcome of this situation and we are looking forward to a successful and mutually beneficial relationship with Infogrames and BioWare on this and other titles," said Herve Caen, President of Interplay. "We're delighted that we have reached an amicable settlement agreement in our dispute with Interplay," added Ray Muzyka, joint CEO of BioWare Corp. "We look forward to completing the development work on Neverwinter Nights and having Infogrames publish this product."
