I don't know for a fact, but I am confident saying the license remains with Hasbro and if the initial games / expansions sold well enough for Hasbro, I am guessing they will still make expansions (I believe the other two named designers are still at Hasbro).

Ongoing lines switching designers is not at all unheard of.

Huh. Well, at least it's not Soaring Rhox. Then I think we'd really know where the AotP rights were.

whistle We know. Hasbro hangs on to all of its IPs like Grim Death, even if they are not published again for years. Its why we love them so. Employees are not allowed to establish their own. That's why he left, I'd guess. Just look at what happened to Battleship Galaxies! It was also a CVN design.

Yeah that had so much wasted potential.

"Its eyes were widening, widening, and in those black pupils, each as big as a softball, Ritchie saw the mad darkness that must exist over the rim of the universe; he saw a shitty happiness that he felt would drive him insane."

Shocking, on the fan sites I never knew Augray, you were Craig's brother .
Mind blown. Where's my jaw...

I'm excited for the future and Soaring Rhino.
Best luck to you two.
