The end of Star Wars Collectable Miniatures Game

August 17, 2010

It’s not new news, but it does beg the question what is to happen to this francise. The game was no great shakes, the miniatures had patchy quality. But it is a popular genre.

“Wizards of the Coast Director of Marketing Greg Yahn announced on the WotC forums that the company was not renewing its Star Wars license and that it would end this summer, attributing the decision to “the economic downturn.

 “We know this news is disappointing, we wanted to make this announcement as soon as possible and thank you for being such great fans,” Yahn said.  “It’s been a fantastic ride with the Star Wars community and working with Lucasfilm.”

The license to release new products ends in May, with WotC product available through August.
