I saw that there were two planned expansions for the two games in the series but then saw that the company had folded, does anybody know if these games will be continued?

I think there may be. But along way off. The license was picked up by Artana games and they are in heavy development for their new legacy game Origins.
but I believe there must be more war stories in the back ground, because in another forum they published a second edition rulebook. Not a change of rules, just a change in layout / explanation and they wanted to see if it made it easier to learn. Why would they bother if they didn't plan on continuing the series?

I saw the Artana link and yes there is a certain logic with a second edition ruleset, as you say why bother if they don't plan on continuing with the series.

What provoked me to ask was that I saw on this site expansions for Satlingrad and Destert Rats dated 2014 and no update posts about them.

Isn't Artana just a rebranded Conquistador Games? Pretty sure it is.

I don't think the company folded. And IIRC the planned expansions for War Stories were nixed based on the poor sales from an admittedly chaotically designed game. Was a huge fan of original designer Michael Tan when it was first getting going, but they had a major meltdown mid-design, and a new designer was brought in to salvage the wreckage.

To be honest, it is a miracle that a game this ambitious was released at all. That it has enough believers to warrant a fixing of the mess of a rule book is inspiring.

That's me and my other pastime. I perform as John Lennon in several Beatles tribute acts.

The game series has sold out so the publishing rights have reverted back to the original designer - me. I intend on continuing the game series although I am presently working with Artana to sort out the details of the transition...
