From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
In an announcement on the Warhammer Community page, GW explained there will be no preorders for the next couple of weeks. This is due to uncertainties around delivery timelines.
Is this announcement related to the Cursed City situation? Perhaps, but if a pre-order is delayed, or supplies run out, it’s unusual to start removing references to the game. It’s more usual to give an updated release date, or a date when new supplies will become available.
They were quick to add that previews of upcoming releases won’t be stopping, so there’s that, I suppose.
People are reacting differently to the Cursed City news. For me, it means getting less excited about those previews. I mean, why set yourself up for disappointment? Anyone who missed out on Cursed City aren’t happy, of course, but those who did get a copy can now be assured this game will receive no further support, or even acknowledgement, from its maker. This is in stark contrast to the build up.
Whatever is going on, their current actions suggest GW haven’t quite got to grips with things.
