Following the announcement of the shutdown of WizKids Games by Topps Company, the BattleTech and Shadowrun communities (along with retailers) have expressed concern over the continued publication of these perennial lines.
â€œWhile itâ€™s understandable that concerns would arise, let me put those concerns to rest,â€ said Loren Coleman, co-owner of Catalyst Game Labs. â€œAfter thorough legal review of our licensing contract, Catalyst is confident that regardless of the ultimate destination of these properties, we can and will continue publications for both game lines.â€
Acquiring the licenses for Classic BattleTech and Shadowrun properties in 2007, Catalyst Game Labs has already published over twenty products for both lines. The November 25th street date of Ghost Cartels and Street Magic continues the revival both game lines are experiencing.
