Topps schließt Wizkids ( MWDA ) 11.11.2008 14:58 Forum: BattleTech


Topps, parent company of WizKids, has decided to terminate WizKids.

From their website:

The Topps Company announced today that WizKids will immediately cease operations and discontinue its product lines.

Scott Silverstein, CEO of Topps, said “This was an extremely difficult decision. While the company will still actively pursue gaming initiatives, we feel it is necessary to align our efforts more closely with Topps current sports and entertainment offerings which are being developed within our New York office.”

Upon notifying our partners, Topps will immediately pursue strategic alternatives so that viable brands and properties, including HeroClix, can continue without noticeable disruption. To that end, WizKids will continue supporting Buy it By the Brick redemptions for Arkham Asylum, and the December Organized Play events for HeroClix.

Dazu passend ein Kommentar von Catalyst Gamelabs

The Topps Company announced today that WizKids will immediately cease operations.

Catalyst Game Labs has already been informed this should in no way affect Catalyst' publication of the Classic BattleTech and Shadowrun game lines. "We're still completely dedicated to the Classic BattleTech and Shadowrun game lines," said Loren Coleman, co-owner of Catalyst Game Labs. "We've got a great line of products coming out heading into 2009 and so see no reason why the 25th [BattleTech] and 20th [Shadowrun] anniversary years for these brands won' be fantastic for our great fan base."

As more information becomes avilable additional announcements will follow.
