From Catalyst Game Labs, since it hasn't made the Wizkids website yet.

"The Topps Company announced today that WizKids will immediately cease operations. Catalyst Game Labs has already been informed this should in no way affect Catalyst’ publication of the Classic BattleTech and Shadowrun game lines. “We’re still completely dedicated to the Classic BattleTech and Shadowrun game lines,” said Loren Coleman, co-owner of Catalyst Game Labs. “We’ve got a great line of products coming out heading into 2009 and so see no reason why the 25th [BattleTech] and 20th [Shadowrun] anniversary years for these brands won’t be fantastic for our great fan base.”

Wizkids was dead already, nobody had told them yet.

It reminds of a certain scene in office space when the consultants realize that one employee had his job eliminated but, due to a "computer glitch," he was still receiving a paycheck.

That Describes Wizkids to me in a nutshell.


I wonder if the Mage Kinght license will come available?
