According to Interplay's agreement with Bethesda, there are a few stipulations when it comes to their retention of the IP for an MMO. For instance, they need to raise $30 million and begin development of the game by April, 2009.

Will Bethesda end up retaining the IP through fine print complications and actually make a better MMO than Interplay ever could?
