Sombody bought Star Wars RPG License?

Postby Needles » Mon Dec 27, 2010 3:33 pm

Somebody has bought the Star Wars license; but whoever it is has not announced it yet. This from Mongoose Publishing's Matt Sprange:

In other A Call to Arms news, I can now report that we did not manage to grab the licence we were chasing for the game - Star Wars. We weren't really expecting this one to happen (we made a sideways reference to it in the State of the Mongoose), but we got much further along than we thought we would.

The interesting thing is why our negotiations ended - another company beat us to it. We are not going to reveal who this is (you have heard of them), as that is their fanfare to blow. However, I am sure many will find it intriguing that the licence covers card games, RPGs, and... miniatures. Now, the company concerned is not known for its miniatures lines, which will probably put paid to my dream of 28mm multipart/multipose Stormtroopers.

This is off the enworld news. You would thing that since they spelled license right in the beginning they would spell it right in the end. :D
There are lies, damned lies and statistics.

First God created idiots, he was just getting started, then he created Wizards of the Coast 4e Dnd.

Ya I have been keeping an eye on this...

Green Ronin had a chance to pick up the licence but they refused it...

IF I would pick a company with the cash to get the licence it would be Fantasy Fight games...

I hope that West End Games has re-acquired the liscence. I'm tired of buying books.
