The eight year licensing relationship between Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games will end, FFG announced today.  The change affects all lines based on Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40,000, and Talisman.  Products already solicited will be released, but no additional products will be offered, and FFG will cease selling all Games Workshop-licensed products as of February 28, 2017.

FFG’s announcement did not disclose which company decided to end the relationship; it simply said, “As much as we have enjoyed creating these games, our current licensing term is coming to an end.”

Products affected by the announcement are:

  • Black Crusade
  • Blood Bowl: Team Manager
  • Chaos in the Old World
  • Chaos Marauders
  • Dark Heresy
  • Dark Heresy Second Edition
  • Deathwatch
  • Forbidden Stars

Organized play for Warhammer 40,000:  Conquest will end with the Fantasy Flight Games World Championships; preorders for Warhammer 40,000 Conquest Store Championship Kits and Quarter 1 Tournament Kits have been canceled. 

FFG lauded the licensor.  “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,” the announcement said. “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.”
