Ulisses: can we please get an update?

Postby Skolloc753 » Thu May 16, 2019 5:37 am

- W&G is no longer sold online.
- No booth at Warhammer Fest
- No communication for weeks and month
- Unclear state of the license according to the infamous chat snippet a few weeks ago.

Can we please get an update what the current state of the RPG line is, if it is dead, if the devs are working on new products etc?

Thanks in advance

Games Workshop is pleased to announce that award-winning publisher Cubicle 7 Entertainment is to produce Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying games.

Cubicle 7 CEO Dominic McDowall said, ”Warhammer 40K is a huge chunk of our gamer DNA so we are all incredibly excited to build on the long legacy of 40K RPGs. I’ve been a 40K fanatic since the first edition, so I am absolutely delighted to bring our brand of roleplaying to this amazing setting.”

The initial range of products will be a revised reprint of the Wrath & Glory Core Rulebook and an extensive range of supplements covering exciting new areas, as well as revisiting beloved old favourites. Cubicle 7 hope that their track record of producing beautiful and immersive licensed games that capture the feel of their settings – including Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay – will appeal to Warhammer 40K gamers old and new.

Cubicle 7 is working with Ulisses’ Wrath & Glory design team to deliver the titles already planned for the game. Ulisses will continue to publish the German language edition of Wrath & Glory, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and the Warhammer Age of Sigmar roleplaying games, in partnership with Cubicle 7.

Yeah, I just skimmed through it. Well, it would be interesting to know why exacatly Ulisses lost the license.

It seems it will still be the same game engine since the German edition will not change. From the press release it seems now that there is one company holding the license in each language (C7 for the english version, Ulisses Spiele for the German version).

Ulisses Spiele press release on the Wrath & Glory Facebook group:

Press-Release
"We’ve been busy behind the scenes finalising a deal that’s been a long time in the making. Ulisses has been working increasingly closely with Cubicle 7 Entertainment, and so we are formalising that arrangement with Cubicle 7 taking the lead on Wrath & Glory development. This will make Wrath & Glory the best it can be, and allow us to pursue our other great game lines more thoroughly!
Dom and the team at C7 are huge 40K fans and we know the game is in good hands. We’ll keep publishing the German language edition, of course, as well as working with Cubicle 7 on the German language editions of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Our Wrath & Glory team will be working with Cubicle 7 to deliver the supplements planned for wave two, three and beyond. We’re really excited to be working with Cubicle 7 and about the future of Wrath & Glory!"
