Catalyst Games Wants WizKids’ Properties
ICv2 reports that Catalyst Games has submitted a bid for WizKids’ properties, including HeroClix, the Pirates PocketModel Game, Star Wars PocketModel TCG, BattleTech/MechWarrior, and Shadowrun. Yesterday, former employees announced the formation of Piñata Games in the hopes of acquiring HeroClix.
Catalyst currently has licenses for BattleTech and Shadowrun games which they acquired from WizKids and those games will continue despite WizKids sudden closure.
“Catalyst has demonstrated our ability to manage large and important intellectual properties,” Catalyst majority owner Loren Coleman told the site. Coleman recently met with Topps execs in New York to discuss the potential acquisition.
