Publisher to stop offering games from Warhammer firm from March 2017
After eight years of working together, distributor Fantasy Flight Games and Warhammer manufacturer Games Workshop have decided to call it quits.
The two teamed up back in 2008 and have since brought titles including Dark Heresey, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Chaos in the Old World, Forbidden Stars and Warhammer 40,000: Conquest to market.
But from February 28th 2017, FFG will no longer offer any Games Workshop titles for sale – that means no more products set in the Talisman, Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 worlds, such as Fury of Dracula, Blood Bowl and all of the aforementioned hits.
FFG confirmed in its announcement that the severing of ties also means the end to organised play support for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, with the 2016 FFG World Championships serving as the game’s farewell tour.
“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,” FFG said. “As much as we have enjoyed creating these games, our current licensing term is coming to an end.
“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 endeavours.”
