I doubt that's what is going to happen in this particular case.
joppo: Maybe, but it doesn't feel so good when that causes the game to leave the catalog. In that case I'd rather see a stagnant IP than a restricted, "forbidden" one.
We'd rather see it return with the new Descent game and maybe remakes of the old ones too.
Interplay now only exists to earn money on old IPs and does nothing with them at all. Remember their "Black Isle is back!" debacle a year or so ago? Yeah, that's that.
With Descent IP in new hands (which Interplay probably sold them anyway) we are going to have old games back soon and a new, gorgeous one as well. And I'm sure all of them are going to be on GOG in no time.
Unless you're suggesting the guys who make new Descent game don't own the IP and just like to be sued into bankruptcy as their hobby.
