ENGAGE Games Online℠ was a online entertainment company, spun off by Interplay Productions in May 1996 from it's own Online Services division[1]. In July 1996 SoftBank Holdings Inc. has made a substantial investment in the company by acquiring 20% of its shares and got a seat on its board of directors.[2]

The company developed online games both independently and with partners like Mythic Entertainment[3], Blizzard Entertainment, and Maxis[2]. It also provided an online game service hosting many popular multiplayer games.

Fallout Online[edit | edit source]

At some point Fallout Online is believed to have been developed by Engage Games Online. This development was canceled due to Interplay's financial difficulties.[4]
