GW and FFG part ways

Postby Sergio » Fri Sep 09, 2016 4:41 pm ... -ways.html

On February 28th, 2017, FFG is going to stop all sales of anything with the GW logo it seems. Anything that was announced will come out but there will be no new announcements of any new GW related products.

Lot of speculation on why this is happening but people were mentioning that FFG called it off not wanting to shell out money for a license that is not making them as much money considering they have access to stuff like Star Wars and now completely own the Legend of the Five Rings IP that they will be working on for the next few years with a LCG and very possibly a RPG.

GW focus on doing their own board games may of also been a factor. Also who knows maybe the Black Library will take another crack at RPGs.

My guess is that it is connected to FFG being bought in the last couple of years. The licenses were probably through 2016 and the new company didnt want to pay to keep the license. I am sure GW is asking a tremendous amount for the license whose value has been dropping with their stock price.
