FFG's site says this game is no longer available and out of print. Does that mean it is dead and not being produced anymore?

It seems so. They had a big sale several months ago. No indication that any more extension will be printed or that the existing core box or expansions will be reprinted.

That sucks because this looks very fun and a really good command and colors. I just recently discovered it and noticed I cannot find it. I would hate to order it somewhere like ebay and then they release a new and improved edition like battle lore

I don't have much to say about the out of print status, apart the fact that it's a pity. I wanted to clarify that Battlelore 2nd edition is NOT an improved version of Battlelore 1st edition. I played them both quite extensively, and I can confirm that they are different games. The fantasy background of the two games is completely different, and the game mechanics, despite a few similarity, like the use of command cards and a three-section battlefield, works differently.

There hasn't been any indication of this, unfortunately.
If you're interested in BoW, I would grab it while the getting is good. It's been getting dumped for cheap for a while, but those sales are running out now, and oop scarcity will likely drive up prices sooner or later.

I think it's unlikely we'll see BoW resurrected, but I could see the BoW game system ported over to a non-GoT setting at some point. The BoW leadership mechanics make it a very different game from BattleLore, and there could be a lot of applications for the system in other settings.

I just ordered this to get sent to the UK and it turned up in 7 days - $42 all in. Absolute bargain.

Now to see if it's any good....
