FFG Interactive Disbanded... app future?

Recommended Posts

The news is hitting about large layoffs at FFG and the disbanding of FFG Interactive.  What does this mean for app supported games like IA and Mansions of Madness 2ed going forward?  All done?

That sucks. 
 

That almost 100% confirms that any future developments are out of the question. I wonder if I should turn off my Steam auto-update feature in order to preserve the app that I have for Legends of the Alliance.

That's a shame, though perhaps not a surprise. Best of luck to all affected.

Wouldn't it be great if they put out one more release of the app, that didn't even need to offer any new features, but just happened to contain all the tile assets for the game, including the ones missing from previous asset bundles? I mean... *cough*.

Both were developed before the FFG Interactive was announced - not the same people. The layoffs are more of a reason for concern.

But we already knew that FFG was more or less finished with LotA.

Could this not work to our advantage?  The article I read said they had staff, including programmers, to reallocate.  Reallocate them to app development and give us some more LotA!

Well, they closed FFG Interactive.  So if they're relocating programmers it's might be to specific products.

(I'm not sure if that's what you meant, but I think it should be said.)

Judging by the interval of campaign releases, 6-8 months, I'm guessing if they are releasing HotE campaign then it would be in May to August 2020... That is, if they don't release another raid.
Let's keep the hopes up, until an official announcement says that LotA is truly finished. I still have HotE and Tyrant expansion left to buy, and I don't think I'll be buying them until a co-op campaign is released.

@KatsusaI don't think there are many left even if you wanted to buy them. People are clearing out the expansions with frenzy, or so it sounds like.

Unless there is hidden stock somewhere, there is no incentive for FFG to spend any resources in updating the app.

(Edit2: And Valkyrie hasn't gained any volunteers to develop IA support. Imperial Directive and RAIVe can be used to play the non-app content.)

FFG already responded, in the AMA video, Imperial Assault is complete 

While I agree with your point, the AMA clarified there would be no more Physical product.

The Digital content was not mentioned (beyond a new Raid mode being announced), however I find it very unlikely we will get any further digital content.

The phrase “complete game” was used in the AMA.  I had inferred that that would include app content, but I agree that it leaves some latitude.

I agree
