According to this article on Wired.
Games Workshop will launch a new ‘Specialist Games’ studio to bring classic board games including Blood Bowl back from the dead.
They quote Games Workshop
“Our all-new Specialist Design Studio will even be tasked with bringing back and re-vamping some of our old favourites. Blood Bowl, Epic, Necromunda and Battlefield Gothic are just some of the great games the team are already eyeing up,”
It looks more than likely that we might see the return of Epic into the family of Games Workshop games. This is an interesting move from GW, who closed down the previous incarnation of Specialist Games in 2009 after creating it back in 2002. During that time we saw many new releases for Epic and other games, including the infamous fantasy football game, Bloodbowl.
Can’t find the press release on the GW website, as their site is down at the time of writing will update as and when we have more news.
