Fantasy Flight Interactive Shut Down

"It's with great sadness that I have to report that the decision has been made to close Fantasy Flight Interactive next month," he wrote. "I'm proud of the team and the game we've dedicated ourselves to for the past few years."
The division was formed in 2017 (see "Asmodee, Fantasy Flight Launch Fantasy Flight Interactive"), and launched a digital game based on the Lord of the Rings LCG the following year (see "Fantasy Flight Takes ‘Lord of the Rings: The Card Game’ Digital").
There were also layoffs in Fantasy Flight’s roleplaying game division, according to social media posts, including longtime Senior Roleplay Game Producer Tim Huckelbery. But Fantasy Flight will continue to release RPGs. A company spokesperson declined comment on the Fantasy Flight Interactive shutdown or the RPG division layoffs, but did confirm that all four of the previously announced RPG products planned for the next few months, including Genesys: Secrets of the Crucible, L5R RPG: Sins of Regret, L5R RPG: Path of Waves, L5R RPG: Gamemat, and Star Wars: Age of Rebellion: Starships and Speeders will be released, and that "…all three product lines are still ongoing."
