Word was broken today that Fantasy Flight Games has acquired the comprehensive Star Wars license. Now, while this is big news, it really doesn’t come as a surprise to this gamer, and quite a few others, including Gary Sarli and newbiedm. There were a lot of developments over the last year that put a lot of it into perspective for me, but I’m not going to get into that just now.
Lets just suffice to say that I’m pleased to see the first two products they are announcing have nothing to do with an RPG. The Starship minis game has be excited to be sure, and the card game, while interesting, will have to be seen and played I think before I can pass judgement. I’ll be watching the news on the eventual RPG front with great interest though. It’s going to take a lot to break me away from Saga Edition I think.
More on this as it develops.
