Fantasy Flight Games has just announced that their license for Warhammer is coming to an end in February and is not going to be renewed.

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2016/9/9/a-new-path-forward/

In 2008, Fantasy Flight Games first began publishing great games set in the amazing Games Workshop universes. From the earliest days of the partnership, Games Workshop played a key role in the Fantasy Flight Games library, helping us further develop roleplaying games like Dark Heresy and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, while creating and establishing new board games like Chaos in the Old World and Forbidden Stars, and Living Card Games® such as Warhammer 40,000: Conquest and Warhammer: Invasion.

Games Workshop has been a fantastic partner for the past eight years, and we’re thrilled that we had the opportunity to work together and bring so many new and exciting games into the world. As much as we have enjoyed creating these games, our current licensing term is coming to an end.

Beginning February 28th, 2017, Fantasy Flight Games will no longer offer for sale any games in conjunction with Games Workshop, including Talisman and all games taking place in the Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 universes.

We’re extremely grateful to our friends at Games Workshop for giving us the opportunity to play in the worlds that they created, and we wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors.

Sucks far as I am concerned, I felt that FFG was doing really excellent work with the license. Own a bunch of their 40k related products and enjoy playing them.

Well that sucks donkey balls. I'll probably pick up some of their 40k products before they shit-can them for good. Wonder why they aren't renewing, or aren't being allowed the option to. I'd be interested to know.

I think it could be a matter of FF dumping GW, rather than the other way around. FF are balls deep in the monster that is the Star Wars franchise at the moment, which should give them the upper hand in any contract renewal negotiations. GW could need FF more than FF needs GW. GW tried playing hardball, and got told to go fuck themselves. Just a thought.

Seems to be as good a thought as any.
