Interplay revived, could Earthworm Jim follow?

Earthworm Jim was getting a PSP sequel ... until Atari had the project canned. Interplay, the original owners of the IP, has managed to come back to financial life due to the sale of the Fallout license to Bethesda Software. According to, "Interplay is recruiting new developers and working to become entirely in-house and self-contained. The developer is hoping to start work on sequels for the Earthworm Jim, MDK, Descent and Dark Alliance franchises in the near future."

With Interplay back in business, could the long-forgotten Earthworm Jim PSP project come back to life? We hope so.
