Gen Con’s on, but not all of the news is coming from the convention floor. This one just hit my inbox and I wanted to share. CMON has picked up the branding and intellectual property rights for Zombicide from Guillotine Games. The two companies have been working hand-in-hand all up to this point bringing you Zombicide, with CMON producing and distributing the game. Now they’re going to be even tighter as the franchise moves forward.
The director of Guillotine Games, David Preti, will also become the new Creative Director at CMON Limited. He’s said, “I’m pleased to see Zombicide in the hands of CMON, and I’m excited for my new role in the company while continuing to bring new, great Guillotine Games titles to gamers.”
CMON and Guillotine have had quite a winning formula for Zombicide, having raised over $10 million over the course of the various Kickstarter projects they’ve run. It will be interesting to see where the franchise goes from here.
