Publisher Interplay has finally reported its results for the three months ended June 30th, as well as providing further details of the status of its franchises - including the sale of the Redneck Rampage property to Vivendi Universal.

Revenues for the June quarter were up to $3.14 million from $1.1 million last year, leading to a major rise in gross profit - up to $1.78 million from a mere $155,000 in the same period last year - and a fall in the company's loss figure.

Net loss after tax came to $1.95 million for the three month period, which compares favourably with a loss of $5.38 million in the same quarter of 2003, and translates as a loss of $0.02 per share.

The company's results filing also revealed a number of other details regarding the status of its operations, including confirmation that another of its franchises has been sold - with the rights to Redneck Rampage going to Vivendi Universal Games for $300,000.

Additional information about the previously announced sale of the rights to the Fallout RPG series to Bethesda is also revealed in the report, including the fact that Bethesda paid $1.175 million for the rights, and has an option to develop two further games in the series for a minimum of $1 million advance against royalties to Interplay on each title.
