FFG and Games Workshop parting ways

Fantasy Flight Games has created several games with licenses from Games Workshop.  From Chaos in the Old World to Forbidden Stars board games, the Warhammer: Invasion and Warhammer 40K Conquest LCGs, and the Rogue Trader and Dark Heresy RPGs, the license has been a huge success for Fantasy Flight Games.  Soon these FFG games will be sparce, as they announced that they will no longer be selling games using the Games Workshops IPs.

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.
