I don't know. I can't see Asmodee or it's parent company wanting to pass on that sweet, sweet Star Wars money.... unless the licence is up for renewal and they think it's run it's course. It could be Asmodee re-allocating product to subsidiaries you have a better understanding of making said item and allowing FFG to concentrate on what they are best at... LCGs and 'wargaming-plus-cards'. Maybe this will help them get their logistics sorted.

Could also be re-organizing divisions so they can sell subparts of the company.

This might be more likely. They're quite the monolith and it might make the investment firm more money to piece out some parts before selling. Really seams counter intuitive to buy everything up just to part it out later but that's a big way investors make some quick cash. Sad as that really destroys a lot of the companies involved and results in a lot of downsizing.

A bunch of FFG's board game stuff moved elsewhere when they were acquired as there was a better fit elsewhere for the more Euro-style games. And FFG are picking up Dead of Winter, Mice and Mystics, and the other leftover stuff from Plaid Hat (they've divorced from Asmodee with the latter keeping a bunch of the more successful games).

It makes a lot of sense actually. FFG never seemed that focused on the RPG line - was a very small team by all accounts.
