    Default Dark Age - Alive, Dead, Limbo, etc.?

    Hello!

    Can we please get an 'official' answer as to what exactly is going on with Dark Age.

    No new releases for almost 1/2 a year.

    The Brood Book and resculpts pushed back from Gencon release to...unknown.

    A massive blowout of a Black Friday sale that as, for the most part, completely wiped out the CMON Shop's inventory of just about everything.

    And...


    ...radio silence from CMON in regards to the future of the game.

    Dark Age is BY FAR my favorite game system, with (arguably) some of the most amazing looking miniatures available today.

    IF properly supported, it should be an absolute winner for CMON.

    PLEASE update us with a proper STATE OF THE DARK AGE address, ASAP!

    Please?

    Per some Facebook discussion, apparently there's an update on Dark Age coming Soon(TM). Who knows if it'll be good or bad though...

    Yes, I saw that.

    I was hoping for something more "Official" and "Concrete" vs. the bog-standard "Soon™" that could mean anytime between now and the heat death of the universe...

    I'm waiting too for any answer... Any "guys relax, we will restock our store and be back in June" at least will be fine

    At this point it almost feels like we will have to wait until the expo before hearing anything...if at all

    I ended up just finding them on eBay. It's a shame, since I'd be happy to just buy stuff from CMON directly, but I can't. On the plus side, I did managed to get enough for a few different factions, so I can just play the game when I want...

    Anyone else hearing anything new about this yet? I figure it's been a pretty long time. I was getting pretty close to buying into Dark Age - my local game store still has some stock, and the Prevailer Council looks pretty boss - but I'm not that excited about jumping into a dead game. Anyone know what's going on?

    For the time being at least, it looks like Dark Age is only being supported by the community. Luckily, the community's still pretty active, and people are running tournaments and such. However, if you're hoping for CMON to do something with Dark Age in the near future, I'd hold off for now.

    One of the announcements from GAMA Trade Show was Asmodee was taking over all retail distribution and POST Kickstarter customer service for Cool Mini. Cool Mini also had a nice revenue boost at the end of 2018 from some of their succesful Kickstarters. Sounds like CMON is throwing their hat into the Kickstarter only model. Unless Cool Mini starts doing smaller Dark Age Kickstarters or another company buys the IP I'm worried that may be it for the game. Even if it is, it had what(?) a good 14 year run.

    CMON does a fair amount of non-Kickstarter stuff, but it's usually the minis-heavy games that they put up on KS. I feel like the real issue with Dark Age is that it's not a "one-and-done" kind of project like a board game. Sure, they're doing ASoIaF, but to be honest I'm not sure how long they'll keep that up.
