Fantasy Flight Games. Der amerikanischer Hersteller fokussiert sich auf seine Kernprodukte.
Dust Warfare und Dust Tactics gehören nicht mehr dazu. Ab dem 1. Juni 2013 übernimmt Battlefront Miniatures die Distribution.
Star Wars X-Wing hin oder her. FFG und Miniaturenspiele passen irgendwie nicht zusammen.
Ihrem sammelbaren Miniaturenspiel im Mutant Chronicles-Universum war vor einigen Jahren kein sonderlich langes Produktleben beschieden. Ich bin gespannt, was Battlefront Miniatures aus der Marke Dust herausholen. Wie wird sich der Heidelberger Spieleverlag positionieren?
Ich gehe davon aus, dass deutscher Verlag und Vertrieb sein Engagement zurückfahren wird.

„Dust Studio today announced that Battlefront Miniatures will become its publishing and distribution partner for the Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare miniatures game lines. Fantasy Flight Games, Dust Studio’s current publishing partner for those games, will transition sales and marketing activity to Battlefront Miniatures on June 1st, 2013.
“Dust has had a wonderful few years, during which we have seen the game’s community grow exponentially,” said Dust creator Paolo Parente. “Both Dust Studio and Fantasy Flight Games have evolved significantly during our relationship, and we now mutually feel that we are both better served by moving in new directions. Christian (CEO of Fantasy Flight Games) and I have known each other for many years, and I can say that this decision is a truly amicable one.”
Added John-Paul Brisigotti, CEO of Battlefront Group, “we are very excited by the Dust universe, and although it is a first for us to be distributing a product other than our own, the fit with our business model made this partnership something we could not resist. During
the last few years, we have been moving into new avenues to expand the breadth
of products the group offers, and we see DUST as another one of these ranges.”
“We’ve been fortunate to distribute Dust Tactics since its debut
at GEN CON 2010, and we’re very proud of our development work on Dust Warfare,”
said Christian T. Petersen, CEO of Fantasy Flight Games (FFG). “The last year,
however, as FFG experienced phenomenal growth across many of our publishing
categories, it became clear that Paolo and the Dust games would be better served
by a partner who specializes in the unique business of miniature games. We’re
confident that Paolo’s partner choice in Battlefront Miniatures is a strong one,
and we wish nothing but the best to them, to Paolo, and to the fantastic Dust
Starting June 1st, Battlefront Miniatures will begin
soliciting and distributing all new products for Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare.
FFG will ship all of its previously solicited new products prior to that date,
and FFG will continue to exclusively sell all current Dust Tactics and Dust
Warfare items while its inventories last. While FFG will support the Dust
Tactics and Dust Warfare regionals events in May and June 2013, all future
marketing and organized play for the games will be handled by Battlefront
Miniatures, including the scheduled GEN CON 2013 tournaments.“
