Asmodee has today announced a “strategic reorganisation” which results in Star Wars: X-Wing, Star Wars: Armada, and Star Wars: Legion leaving Fantasy Flight Games.
Atomic Mass Studios, another Asmodee company, is now in charge of those games.
Why? Asmodee describes Atomic Mass Games as their miniatures games-focused studio.
The press release highlights Asmodee’s apparent desire to consolidate all their miniature games in one studio.
Development of all future miniatures games will be handled by Atomic Mass as well. The move to a specialty studio positions Asmodee’s miniatures titles for even greater success in the future.
However, it’s not all change. Simone Elliott who has been the point of contact between Fantasy Flight and Lucasfilm since 2015 will lead Atomic Mass’s expansion as Head of Studio. Will Shick becomes Head of Product Development.
In February 2020, Fantasy Flight Games discontinued their RPG lines to focus on board, card and miniature games. Those RPGs, including Star Wars, have now been moved to yet another Asmodee studio Edge Entertainment.
