The End Has Come for Battlestar Galactica

January 1, 2021 - 5:04am

As of December 31, 2020, Ares Games has lost the license for its Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles combat miniatures game, which has reverted back to Universal Brand Development.  Attempts were made to renew the license, which Ares Games had held since December 2018, but negotiations were unsuccessful.  

Two expansions that had been previously announced for early 2021, Faster than Light and the Additional Counter Set, are only going to be released as free downloadable PDFs.  All of the current stock of models will be discontinued on June 30th, 2021.

According to the Ares website, “The end of the game represents a significant loss to us – not just because of the loss of all developed models in the pipeline, now canceled, and of all the work we dedicated to the project for several years - but also because we will not be able to provide to the dedicated player’s community which supported the game the new releases they were waiting for.”
