I remember listening to a Dice Tower episode where Tom Vassal talked to different companies about their plans for 2009. According to the podcast, he skipped Fantasy Flight as they planned on announcing their plans in April.
I also remember Jay Adan mentioning some kind of partnership with a publisher on bringing some new offerings online with an announcement by the publisher expected in the spring of this year I believe.
Coincedence? Purely conjecture (and some wishful thinking) on my part, but stranger things have happened. Then again, with the economic downturn, maybe the plans (with whatever publisher) were scuttled. Don't remember hearing any followup.

Fantasy Flight posted an "April Fools" message saying they were branching into computer games and announcing they were releasing the first game based on "Twilight Imperium." Yeah, right. Great joke announcement.

Whether that's related to this or not (announcing in April?), but without giving out info I know that they might not wish me to share, FFG has gone through a difficult, and emotional, transition lately and this really doesn't sound like something they would be working on right now.

It would be nice, though.

Anyone know more about this difficult transition Fantasy Flight is going through?

And GTO and FF would be an incredible, though unlikely, match-up.

Would be the second game, since I wrote the first.

There is NO game at that link, disappointing.

So.. interesting that I find a thread like this... I contacted both Rob Eng from GTO about writing some games for them.. and FF whom never got back to me, even though I was offering to implement it free of charge (I really want to play Citadels online).

Without releasing any private details, let's just say that while my hopes are at the same place.. I wouldn't count on it happening any time soon, if ever.

There is. But it is not available to the public (read text there).
