Just read the announcement on the FFG. If my understanding is correct, no reprint is planned and it was before removed from the Upcoming site

It is also out of stock almost everywhere in Europe and the US.

I believe you are correct.

It's possible that they will be allowed to reprint already developed material, but nothing new be created. I guess my hopes for a CitOW 10 year anniversary addition have been dashed. whistle

The announcement is rather explicit about this bit:

FFG wrote:
Beginning February 28th, 2017, Fantasy Flight Games will no longer offer for sale any games in conjunction with Games Workshop, including Talisman and all games taking place in the Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 universes.

There will be no reprints. The world really is coming to an end.

The worst part is announcing 'no reprints' when the product is out of stock - sounds like a bad joke

Well, 'never' is such a strong word... I'm quite confident that GW will at some point in the future release their own updated version of this game. The question is how much it will resemble FFG's version.

I'm sure that FFG can bring as many lawyers to a court battle as GW meanwhile. I guess GW would rather not take that risk; they prefer trampling weaker opponents.

A bit like Orks. I guess GW likes Orks.

Yes seems, it will not come again. I was lucky today and picked up the last copy in my local game store...

Very unlikely. More likely we'll see a rethemed update from FFG.

I'm not sure which scenario is more likely. Perhaps we'll see both.

Let the price gouging begin! (sarcasm) I completely understand when some gamer wants to make an extra buck from an item in his gaming collection but I honestly loathe retailers and game stores who charge "collectors" prices at the moment when something in their stock is announced as out of print...

CITOW is in a difficult position. It's not a GW game. The game was designed by FFG, using the Old World IP. The probability is that it will be too hard for either company to produce it without the agreement of the other. At current prices of the Horned Rat on ebay, I'll probably attempt to print my own copy and use GW skaven for the minis (even thought they are a bit big.

I just got CitOW and I hate that I will probably never have the horned rat.. It goes for like 150 dollars on Amazon, but I am not that obsessed.

I am kicking myself. I ordered this for a friend before I had my own copy of Chaos (which I just picked up a couple weeks ago for $100). I got the expansion for about $20 and gave it to my friend....if I only knew...

Maybe in a year or two the prices will drop and you will see them pop up all over. I'm hoping!
