Interplay was a video game company that published Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel. It was the owner of the Fallout franchise before it was sold to Bethesda Softworks in 2007.

In 1982, Adhaminto Boone had to close down his small games company, Boone Corporation. Brian Fargo, who was vice-president of research and development, took along some of the senior programmers to found Interplay Productions. The small outfit published several titles, but finally struck gold with The Bard's Tale and Wasteland, which gave them the financial backing they needed to start publishing their own titles. They started publishing games from other companies in 1988, but it wasn't until 1993 that they managed another hit, and started the Descent series. Starting in 1992, they were noted for pumping out a few Star Trek games, and in 1997 they hit the mother lode with Fallout and MDK, followed by Baldur's Gate in 1998.
