WizKids Cancellation Announcement

Posted By Mike on February 8, 2009

From the announcement at WizKidsGames.com:

"The Topps Company announced today that WizKids will immediately cease operations and discontinue its product lines.

Scott Silverstein, CEO of Topps, said “This was an extremely difficult decision. While the company will still actively pursue gaming initiatives, we feel it is necessary to align our efforts more closely with Topps current sports and entertainment offerings which are being developed within our New York office.”

Upon notifying our partners, Topps will immediately pursue strategic alternatives so that viable brands and properties, including HeroClix, can continue without noticeable disruption. To that end, WizKids will continue supporting Buy it By the Brick redemptions for Arkham Asylum, and the December Organized Play events for HeroClix.

For consumer announcements, please refer to www.wizkidsgames.com over the coming days for further information."




Sorry to be the bearer of bad news to WizKids fans!




Thanks to Julian in the UK for the heads up. We feel for ya, dude!

Thanks again Julian!




UPDATE #2: One more link for you: SaveHeroClix.com




UPDATE #3: Though SWPocketModels.com has mailed The Maker a petition to bring back Wizkids, those who created the petition figure he may not have noticed it in his pile of mail. So, Mr. Lucas, if you happen to be reading TFN, (as we hope you do weekly) please click here for the petition!
