This year Cubicle 7 picked up the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay license from Games Workshop. Today they’ve shared the front covers for the 4th edition and announced they’ll be publishing the game later than planned.
Warhammer FRPG is now expected mid-2018. According to design lead Dominic McDowall;
The initial plan was to make some small updates to the awesome second edition, and that would mean we would be able to release the game in 2017. We’re all huge fans of the first and second editions of WFRP, and we wanted to take the game back to those roots.
“When I got into the guts of the game I started seeing more opportunities to add in some of the things we’ve learned over the years. This more creative direction meant a longer development phase. Games Workshop are extremely supportive of us taking the time we need to make WFRP Fourth Edition the very best game it can be, and so that’s what we did. I’m very excited about the way things have come together!
“The release date of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Fourth Edition will be set for mid-2018, with a specific date to be set in a few months. Thank you for your patience while we invest the time to make the best game we can.”
Cubicle 7 have shared the front cover for the 4th Warhammer and a product called ‘Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay Starter Set’. Ralph Horsley has done both. I’m reminded very much of the 2nd edition cover.
