How far is the game from being discontinuid

Recommended Posts

I've been crunching numbers and in 4 months I will get all the expansions + blisters to have the complete game.

 

Do you think that, by that time, it will be on sales?

Sure. I don't think this is right around getting discontinued at all. It's just not releasing a waterfall of expansions anymore. Even if it was, if you play campaign there is plenty of stuff (I personally still play descent a lot, even if it 'very' rarely gets new stuff). If you are in it for Skirmish, only Spectre Cell is giving the game a little trouble otherwise it is in an excellent spot.

I’m a little confused by the question.  Are you asking if you’ll be able to get IA products on clearance soon?

If so, I’d say it’s not likely.  I’m sure you’ll be able to find some sales though.

Mostly because they're still releasing (free) app content to drive their physical sales, and the word on the street is that the game is still selling well.

The the expression should be: It's not likely to be discontinued.

Well, @a1bert had already explained the reasoning.  I figured there was no sense in making you read his post and then read it again in my post.

Sorry for the confusion.

Well you said won't be likely to get products of iA anytime soon, that's why I found it contradictory about what a1bert said.

That’s not even close to what I said.

I’m aware of the content of my post.  It is in no way contradictory to a1bert’s.

So... I’m afraid to ask this question for fear of it being insulting but here we go:  is English your first language?

Then, tell me, what did you say with this post: It is likely to have availability in the following months, yes or not?

This isn't Rocket Science. You started a topic, readers replied.  It seems pretty obvious they stated that the game is in a good place and they expect more product to come out in the coming months. The only people that know for sure are those that work for FFG.  So the answer to the original question is a guess at best.  If you are looking for product on sale, do a little research and there's a good chance some online vendor, auction site, or your local gaming store might be having a sale.

1) Imperial Assault will not disappear from the stores, you are expected to be able to purchase any of the existing expansions for the foreseeable future.

2) Only FFG knows if and when they are going develop NEW expansions.

Uninvited was saying that it's not likely that you'll be able to buy everything on clearance (which means for a reduced price), and he said that because it seems very likely that what's already been released for IA is very likely to continue to be supported (reprints, new app campaigns, etc.).  That agrees with what A1bert and I both said as well - whether you buy things now or in four months, you're probably going to be paying a similar price.

If you were instead asking whether or not they're going to release any additional physical content, or when that release might happen, that's a much different question and will get you a much wider array of answers :).  Personally, I hope they do but I have no idea.

Yes.

I asked you to clarify your question so that it could be properly answered.

I asked this because you used the words “discontinued” and “on sale.”  So hopefully this clears why I asked the question.

”On sale” means being sold at a discounted price, but I wonder if you meant “for sale” meaning it’s available for purchase.

When a product is discontinued it typically goes on sale.  This type of sale is called “Clearance.”

The game is not likely to go on clearance because the game is not likely to be discontinued.  It will be for sale and some stores may even have it on sale.

Why would it ever be discontinued?  It could just be frozen in time with what we have now, although I believe there are more expansions coming, with just the app.

Even if full box expansions stop becoming profitable, I don't see why they wouldn't continue with at least a blister wave each year.

 

It's a pretty low risk thing, since it's a small product that a lot of fans would still buy (and, presumably, would generally be compatible with core and friendly to new collectors).

While I do not expect much in the way of physical products I think the game will have a long healthy life of me digital adventures and occasional card packs like we have seen with descent.
