Has anyone some info, what happened to this gorgeous game? All I can find is gossip and rumours, a proparbly muted developer and a silent publisher. Nothing official. There are many things that leads to the assumption that CMON letting it die... but wouldn't there be an official statement? Killing it off and hoping noone notice is not really gentlemenlike.

Has anyone more than just rumours?

It isn't on the list of games being distributed by Asmodee (with WoK being absent as well) now that they have an exclusive deal to be the ones selling CMON products, so there is nowhere to buy it. That's a quiet announcement that those product lines are discontinued.

When your company only has one customer (the distributor), you make what they want to buy. They obviously weren't interested in distributing those properties.

Who knows; maybe they'll get rebranded and remade someday.

That's really sad... and kinda humiliating to treat a great game like that.

It would be so awesome if it would get rebranded. I keep my fingers crossed till that (hopefully not so) distant day.

At least, the community keeps it alive.

Hi - what list of Asmodee's products are you looking at? Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, but from what I can see, their product list hasn't been updated since 2018, and the deal was apparently March 2019 - so it's no surprise that Dark Age and others are absent.

Indeed, that's true - but they say "including", not "these are the only games". CMON has dozens of games - do you think that all the other games are also quietly discontinued? Maybe I'm grasping at straws. Hell, I probably am. But I can hope.

Incidentally, that same press release (google "press release asmodee cmon") says Asmodee has the exclusive license to market CMON games in North America. So it's possible they'll still be sold by someone else outside of NA. Again, straws, but it's all I have right now. I literally have Dark Age minis on their way to me right now.

They already have exclusive distribution in EU as well. So unless you're in Asia/Pacific or Africa... that's who you're getting it from.

Someone has to tell Prodos. They lost their Warzone licence recently... they could need another SciFi IP... if they ain't saturated by alien vs. predator.

In Germany Asmodee had no distribution for Dark Age... like ever... I got mine from a shop that ordered the minis from the US directly from CMON.
