It was a pretty big announcement when Fantasy Flight Games and Games Workshop parted ways. At the time, it seemed as though it was going to be Games Workshop that was going to be making all of their board games. But we’ve just gotten a new announcement from WizKids that they are now partnered with Games Workshop and will be making new board games and products based on GW’s properties.
From the post:
WizKids, the leader in high-quality pre-painted miniatures and established board games, today revealed a multi-year partnership with acclaimed fantasy miniatures company, Games Workshop. The new partnership will extend the Warhammer 40,000 universe IP across multiple categories, including, Dice Building Games™, board games and more!
“We’re thrilled to be working with Games Workshop and the Warhammer 40,000 license,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “This beloved franchise is known the world over and our partnership will allow us to create amazing products and experiences for fans everywhere.”
The multi-year deal will span numerous categories and include the most iconic Warhammer 40,000 characters and more. WizKids will create two new board games, along with dice games based in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, with additional plans to republish classic board games Fury of Dracula and Relic.
WizKids will begin rolling out the new product lines in mid 2018.
