Announcing the End of Android: Netrunner

In 2012, Fantasy Flight Games launched  Android: Netrunner The Card Game. With innovative mechanics revised from the classic collectible card game, combined with the dystopian, cyberpunk future of the Android universe, Android: Netrunner has enthralled thousands of players over the course of its two core sets, a campaign expansion, five deluxe expansions, and eight cycles of Data Packs.

Wizards of the Coast has been a fantastic partner to Fantasy Flight Games over the past six years, and the people of Fantasy Flight Games have expressed gratitude for letting them play with the game system that they pioneered. However, Fantasy Flight Games' licensing term is coming to an end, and today, must announce the end of Android: Netrunner The Card Game.

Starting on October 22nd, 2018, Fantasy Flight Games will no longer offer for sale any Android: Netrunner The Card Game products, including Android: Netrunner playmats and card sleeves. Before reaching that point, Android: Netrunner still has one final stop to make: the Reign and Reverie deluxe expansion will be the final product for the game. Featuring cards for every faction, Reign and Reverie is a celebration of all things Android: Netrunner, and an appropriately climactic conclusion to the game's six-year run. What's more, while Android: Netrunner is coming to an end, the worlds of Android will continue to be explored, from the gritty streets of SanSan to the warring colonies of Mars, in future products from Fantasy Flight Games.

As Android: Netrunner The Card Game draws to a close, Organized Play for the game is also coming to an end.

For more details and thoughts on the end of Android: Netrunner from Lead Developer Michael Boggs and Fantasy Flight Games Head of Studio Andrew Navaro, read on.

November 14, 2017 – Hillside, NJ – WizKids, the leader in high-quality pre-painted miniatures and established board games, today revealed plans for an upcoming miniatures line and board game featuring the world-renowned trading card game, Magic: The Gathering. The new IP extends WizKids’ existing licensing partnership with leading game creators Wizards of the Coast, which already includes the famed Dungeons & Dragons.

The announcement combines the expertise of WizKids’ sculpted miniatures with the original Trading Card Game brand recognized the world over, immersing fans in the world of Magic!

The initial pre-painted sculpted miniatures will focus on token creature card favorites, adding a premium touch to the player’s table top experience while the board game will pull from the original trading card lore. Players will play as Planeswalkers, exploring the landscape of Dominaria as they establish connections to their mana sources, gathering power before their opponents do and building their hand of spell cards.

“We’re introducing a long-time, beloved brand to an all new medium,” said Justin Ziran, president of WizKids. “Producing high-quality miniatures and bringing to market captivating board games is at the heart of WizKids. We could not be more excited to extend our relationship with Wizards of the Coast with Magic: The Gathering.”

The new miniatures line and board game are set to release in Fall 2018.

Congratulations to this year’s Origins Award recipients!
