Fans were outraged, and Interplay decided to rub more salt in the wound by not only outright canceling ''Van Buren'' (according to WordOfDante, due to budget contraints and a lost of faith on [=CRPGs=] due to the popularity of consoles at the time), but also deciding to make a second ''Brotherhood of Steel'' game. Of course, [[LaserGuidedKarma Interplay paid for this]] due to the first ''[=BoS=]'' game selling very poorly and Interplay going bankrupt.
