GameTap has re-acquired the rights to Interplay titles and has also finalized a deal with publisher Take-Two. The return of Interplay, following an awkward departure last December, means that titles like Earthworm Jim, Descent and MDK will return to the service beginning in June. GameTap also announced it'll be losing six titles (all listed after the break).

The finalized deal with Take-Two, which brought Civilization IV and Pirates! to the service late last year, could yield some interesting titles. There's no word yet what games are being added beyond Civ IV's expansion Warlords, but getting some Rockstar titles (like Max Payne and GTA) would be sweet.

Interplay additions:
  • American Deer Hunting 2000 (Windows)
  • Battle Chess (DOS)
  • Clayfighter (Genesis)
  • Descent II (Windows)
  • Descent III (Windows)
  • Descent: Freespace (Windows)
  • Descent: Freespace Silent Threat Battle Pack (Windows)
  • Die By the Sword (Windows)
  • Earthworm Jim 3D (Windows)
  • Earthworm Jim (Genesis)
  • Earthworm Jim 2 (Genesis)
  • Freespace 2 (Windows)
  • MDK (Windows)
  • Offroad Redneck Racing (Windows)
Titles leaving June 12:
  • Age of Wonders II: The Wizard's Throne
  • Fly! 2k
  • Mall Tycoon
  • Myth II: Soulblighter
  • Nocturne
  • Outdoor Life: Sportsman's Challenge
