John Wick, now at John Wick Presents, part of AEG’s original development team for the “swashbuckling and sorcery” RPG, has secured the publishing rights from the game.
The sellers, AEG, are clear these are publication rights and that they will still be publishing a number of products for the title over the next few years. What might those products be? AEG won’t comment.
AEG’s CEO, John Zinser, did say;
The world of 7th Sea is just too amazing to spend any more time sitting on a shelf and while a deal we announced a month or so ago for that other property we developed has gotten a lot of attention this deal has been in negotiation for much longer. It is just good Karma that 7th Sea end up back with it’s creator. We are excited that we get to keep the part of the playground we do best and let JWP start to grow the brand again from the ground up.
There’s a 7th Sea mailing list on their homepage for anyone interested in signing up.
There’s clues from John Wick’s comments as to what AEG plan for their share of the RPG. He said;
“I’m very glad AEG is doing card and board games,” John Wick said. “They’ve proven to be one of the best companies in the world when it comes to those kinds of games. I’m excited to see what they come up with.”
