Wizards of the Coast, which took responsibility for the Heroscape game line from Hasbro subsidiary Milton Bradley a couple of years ago, has now announced that it's shutting down the line. Here's the text of the official WotC announcement:

After a thorough evaluation, we have made the decision to discontinue our Heroscape line in order to focus our efforts on our core brands. While this decision means that we will no longer be developing new content for the game, existing Heroscape products will still remain available from Wizards of the Coast and sold in the hobby game channel while supplies last.

The next and final Heroscape expansion, Moltenclaw’s Invasion, will be released on November 16, 2010. This final assortment, which is playable with the Heroscape D&D Master Set, will include the best and most iconic creatures from the worlds of Dungeons & Dragons. Orcs, bugbears, dragons and frost giants will all come together to join the greatest battle of all time.

The WotC website has a FAQ related to the announcement, but you won't learn much more by visiting the page.

On the positive side, WotC subsidiary Avalon Hill now has a game page for Richard Borg's Battle Cry, with a release date of November 23, 2010.

On another note, I didn't know that Avalon Hill was a subsidiary of WotC... I knew Hasbro had bought them, but I didn't know that they had put them under Wizards management...

Strange.. but then again.. there is more than more than enough Heroscape expansions out there.. you don't really need them to produce anything more to enjoy the game to its fullest.
