The one has never had anything to do with the other. I think WB's decision,
and it was their decision, came down to a sense that the license was just sort
of dormant and not growing over at AoG, and that the time and resources
involved were not equal to what was coming back financially.
But the licenses are non-competitive; one doesn't preclude the other since, as
you note, one is an RPG and the other, AOG game, is a tactical starship combat
game. You don't have to cancel the one to do the other, one has nothing to DO
with the other. You could have both going at the same time, or one, the other,
My comment was in response to the statement that NO new licenses are being
given out, which is patently false. In addition to the RPG, there are other
licenses also under current discussion.
