Also, another announcement from corporate world for fans of HeroClix (and other games).
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.
~Anywho, my theory . . . I think that corporate bean-counters already knew that they were going to splash WizKids when they took over in 2003. I think Jordan Weisman will not be sending Arthur Shorin a Christmas card this year.
