It appears as though UDE has lost the license to make the WoW Card game, and will be ceasing production. According to potomacdist.com:

Quote:
We just received word today that Upper Deck will no longer be producing the World of Warcraft TCG. So we are no longer accepting pre-orders for the Class Decks or Wrathgate boosters. We do not have any further details at this time.


I can't imagine that Blizzard will just let this lucrative product line fall by the wayside. What's left to see is if the game gets a reboot or remake, or if another company starts producing the game as-is.

We want to assure you that we are committed to supporting the TCG, and players can look forward to new content and strong organized play support in the near future. We will share additional details about the game’s transition to a new partner as soon as possible. For those awaiting tournament prizes, we will ensure you receive them.

All –

It’s unfortunate that web rumors can so easily throw everyone into a panic but let me assure you that Upper Deck will be producing the WOW TCG in 2010. Plans for future sets have been moving along as normal and we even announced a good chunk of the 2010 product schedule a week ago.

Just recently the Upper Deck team was at Blizzard to discuss plans for 2011 and just today we were at Blizzard to get a sneak peak of Icecrown Citadel, to help in the development of the 2010 Raid Deck and Treasure Packs.

We have lots of great plans for 2010 and beyond and look forward to another great year for the WOW TCG. Thanks for your enthusiasm and support!

Best,

I guess it is now clear that Upper Deck was lying.

None of this should be too surprising, given the Yu-gi-oh fiasco.

just want to point out that Blizzard has taken over the card game in lieu of UDE losing the license. The realm championships in the USA have just concluded.

No word on international support though.

Blizzard have set up a sister company, basically - Cryptozoic (www.cryptozoic.com) seems to be made up of Blizzard and ex-UDE staffers. They certainly have a lot of good ideas, so here's hoping they follow through (especially when it comes to support for the game outside of the USA).
