ArtHaus/Whitewolf roleplaying line cancelled?
Backed up from the articled;
Current rumors have been circulating that World of Warcraft: The Roleplaying Game, by the White Wolf/ArtHaus line, may have been canceled due to poor sales and other factors. The last book released is Dark Factions (2008). No new information has been given for quite some time. It has been claimed that one of Blizzard's panel members at Gencon made the announcement when questioned about it. Also, most of the books in the series are out of print at this point.
No official books have been announced, but three RPG fanbooks have been announced (Even More Magic and Mayhem, Monster Guide II, and Burning Crusade Sourcebook). Warcraft RPG author Adam Loyd (aka MagusRogue) is included among the staff of these books. However, these books are not official, White Wolf has nothing to do with them, they are not supported by Blizzard, and their release dates are unknown.
Wizards of the Coast (WotC), current owner of Dungeons & Dragons, produced a new version of D&D in June 2008. The new edition has greatly changed the mechanics of the game and is, for the most part, not compatible with the older rule set used by the Warcraft RPG. Since the bulk of the table top RPG market is held by Dungeon & Dragons, White Wolf could be holding back to see if a new line with the new edition's rules would be viable or not.
Needless to say, the future of the official Warcraft RPG line is murky.

- The moral of this story is: "Just because you can buy the rights to something that might make you money, doesn't mean you should, especially if your own original products suck.". --Super Bhaal (talk) 01:16, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

I know they're still printing all editions of D&D. That wasn't cancelled, it was too popular. I guess it's just this then. Theoretically, you could probably find the rules on the net anyway. Unless you need special miniatures or scenery, I don't see why this is so hard. BobNamataki (talk) 10:27, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
RPG to novels or novels to RPG
- Some material first introduced in the RPG was expanded upon later in other sources such as novels and manga.
I think the reverse would also be true, because Day of the Dragon (2001) preceded the first RPG in 2003 and introduced Prestor who was a character in the RPG. Tycio (talk) 05:37, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
