This is interesting, as Games Workshop has a lot of specialists games that are supposedly in the works. Could FFG have not gotten their license renewed?

Right now, speculation is that Fantasy Flight Games have lost the licensing to the Warhammer and Warhammer 40K franchises from Games Workshop. An unconfirmed source has told EN World that the license is, in fact, ended, but as of the time of publication no official word from either Fantasy Flight Games or Games Workshop have confirmed this information.

The PDFs for the Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play and Warhammer 40K role-playing lines have been removed as being for sale from the Fantasy Flight Games pages on the OneBookShelf sites. In June, it was reported that Games Workshop had been at the Licensing Trade Show And Expo in Las Vegas looking for licensing agreements for:

Battlefleet Gothic
Blood Bowl
Dark Future
Dawn of War
Fury of Dracula
Horus Heresy
Man ‘O’ War
Space Hulk
Warhammer 40,000
Warhammer Age of Sigmar
Warhammer Fantasy Battle
Warhammer Quest

The above image of the Games Workshop booth (taken before the opening of the Expo) shows that the company was looking to license their properties for video games, entertainment, apparel, collectables, publishing and toys. It is uncertain as yet if they secured a new licensee for the tabletop gaming rights, but it is hopeful that this will be explained when Games Workshop returns contact. It is also uncertain how this will impact the licensing of non-Warhammer games like Talisman.
