Thanks goto Eurogamer for letting us know that Titus Interactive has extended its stake in Interplay to over 51%, giving it control over the troubled publisher. Here's the important bit:

    A statement from the French company said that "this purchase raises Titus Interactive's voting rights and will enable, during the Annual General Meeting in September, a re-election of the board and a takeover of Interplay by Titus Interactive". Interplay now joins Hasbro Interactive, Mattel Interactive, GT Interactive, Sierra, Interactive Magic, Accolade and a host of other American publishers to have been taken over by the French.
