I think it's coming. Even the dice tower recently hinted at that. Let's hope for some news at gencon.

yeah sadly so far it doesn't look like they gonna release any and I hope I'm very wrong about this because lots of us want them. There is some really interesting info in previous threads regarding this.

They talked about it briefly in the origins live coverage. I don't have a link.

Don't lose hope, but I wouldn't say it's a confirmation either.

According to this reddit thread one of the main designers was let go from FFG and while there was clearly intent from the designer to keep going the climate at FFG is not as favorable towards us getting one cry

But one of the very creators of the game posted on this forum a while ago that it's very unlikely.

The Dice Tower was talking about the 40K Conquest LCG Tyranid expansion. Unfortunately, they were not talking about a Forbidden Stars expansion. Here's another thread that talked about it: https://boardgamegeek.com/article/20614690#20614690

Tom said it off offhandedly in a way that could go either way. I believe he was referring to FS in the video I seen.

I am really hoping Gen Con will lead to some news. It's my favorite game that I can get to the table regularly.

I believe the more buzz we make on BGG and the FFG forums it can only help. They have so much art and resources from 40k Conquest and the game is really something special; we should see something...

Take heart from the Battlelore 2 experience: there wasn't an expansion announced for quite some time... but once they did, there were like 8 (small) expansions all at once.

It's true an expansion has not been announced as of yet. But remember, this is FFG we're talking about, their name is sononomous with "lots of expansions." And the 40K universe is huge, and also sononomous with "lots of expansions." Expansions are only a matter of time. IMO.

While it is expansion happy Fantasy Flight, it is Games Workshop's IP, so FF hands might be tied in the matter.

I believe that this is the actual stumbling block, GW wants their IP back, and apparently does not wish to share with FFG any longer...that's just my opinion based on what I've read.

I don't really think it's about the licance. Or rather not about the W40K licance - FFG focused really hard on Star Wars lately, so I really wouldn't be surprised if they just didn't care enought about this game to take manpower from any Star Wars project and put in on FS. They have a pretty huge cow to milk, so why bother with the little guys?

That is true on both accounts. Star Wars is a home run hit as one of the creators of FS stated.

Also, do you noticed how many board games with minis that Game Workshop has came out since last year? HH: Betrayal on Calth, Execution Assassination, Deathwatch Overkill, Lost Patrol remake, that 2 knights box game, Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower remake and some others I might have miss. Also another Horus Heresy box game is coming this fall, Blood Bowl late 2016/early 2017, Adeptus Titanatus maybe next year, and other specialist game boxes. With the direction that the new CEO of GW is going with making a big push to make a lot of miniature board games, the future of more FGG based on GW IP looks Grimdark.

Forbidden Stars is a different beast and doesn't compete with any of these games. On the contrary, it only helps the franchise and other associated games get more exposition. If GW is blocking the usage for an expansion for Forbidden Stars, then they lack vision.

Sadly incorrect. It isn't Fantasy Flight, it's Asmodee. It's restructured and reprioritized. They will still be expansion-heavy but only for really hot games.

What happens if you're simply not that interested in Star Wars?

No comment on the fact Sam Bailey doesn't even work at FFG anymore? (I guess corey could still do it?)

It is probably this. FFG is still publishing expansions in the WH40k setting, just not for this game.

A shame is it is very popular in our group, but most gaming clubs will have maybe one copy between them, and that might have been purchased up to a year ago.

I would also welcome expansion(s) with open arms, however given the game replayability (modular map, different 2, 3 and 4 player configurations) as well as the fact that I have no chance to play more than 4 times per month - I am patient.

From FFG FS forum:

Quote:
I think that they lost the license. Okay, fine, I know they are going to lose the license. Unfortunately, I can't say more, as I owe the person who told me this that, but take a look. No new Warhammer products in development this year, and no new announcements for 40k. The POD WQ card game expansions don't count, since they were in development last year. No new expansions for this great game. Think about it. Then think about how stupid GW is. Feel free to freak out.

That's not accurate. They are constantly announcing expansion for the WH40K: Conquest LCG.

-edit-

And if you check their upcoming products, they are still printing several 40K related products.

License for card games is different from board games and miniature games. These licenses are separate.

I understand that. But, I wouldn't take seriously anyone throwing out that they lost the license to anything. For all we know, the Forbidden Stars license is very specific. Why wouldn't GW want there to be expansions? They would likely see a cut of that and it's not an area they compete in. Their board game ventures typically act as vehicles to get folks into their main Fantasy and 40K miniature lines. Forbidden Stars doesn't compete in that space.
