HeroScape Revival Take #2: Renegade Game Studioes & Hasbro

Postby Kurgan » Saturday June 10th, 2023 6:09pm

After the failure of "Age of Annihilation" Haslab campaign last year we assumed HeroScape was dead in the water for another decade with only the fans keeping it alive... then seemingly out of nowhere, two days ago there was a quiet announcement that Renegade Game Studioes (who?) are working with Hasbro to revive the game yet again!

San Diego, CA – June 8, 2023 - Renegade Game Studios is excited to announce that they are finalizing expansion of their licensing relationship with Hasbro, a global leader in play, to produce the best-selling Heroscape tabletop game.

Originally proposed for relaunch in October 2022 by Avalon Hill on Hasbro Pulse’s crowdfunding platform, HasLab, fans shared an outpouring of support for the game’s revival. Now, the organizations have come together to usher in the long-awaited return of Heroscape for the hobby, mass, and specialty markets. Renegade will also partner with Hasbro Pulse to make Heroscape available to as wide an audience as possible.

Fans will get to experience classic elements of the game they love with all-new content, alongside the introduction of terrain packs, faction boxes, and more. Going forward, Renegade hopes to introduce new models in a variety of configurations and price points for both new and hardcore Heroscape players.

“Heroscape brought a lot of people into hobby gaming and to this day there is a robust and passionate community; we look forward to growing that community and continuing to offer new and exciting models for gamers to enjoy,” said Scott Gaeta, President and Publisher of Renegade Game Studios. “Additionally, we will be partnering with hobby stores to give Heroscape and its community of players the best home possible where they can make new friends and engage in exciting battles across Valhalla!”

Additionally, Renegade will provide online community and organized play support, including a future World Championship. Hobby stores can look forward to organized play and point of purchase support at launch.

“Fans have been clamoring for a revival of Heroscape, and we’ve heard you. That’s why we are tremendously excited to bring back and expand the beloved brand with the Renegade team, who are big fans themselves,” says Bradley Bowman, Licensing Director of Global Toys & Sporting Goods at Hasbro. “We’re celebrating this return alongside our fans, and look forward to offering existing players more ways to enjoy the game and introducing a whole new generation to Heroscape and its endless imaginative potential.”

Re: HeroScape Revival Take #2: Renegade Game Studioes & Hasb

Renegade produces a lot of IP related games, especially deck-builders, and even a few RPGs, most of which leans heavily into IPs like GI Joe and Transformers, licenses that Hasbro has anyway. So this could make some sense.

Their games can be hit or miss, and can also land heavily in the Mass Market game design approach and marketing... But that's kind of what HeroScape was to begin with.

Ideally they'll be able to produce what Hasbro already prepped and not have to start from scratch, but by and large Renegade has been fairly successful with their properties from what I've seen so far.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Renegade, but then I also am not much for HeroScape, so there's that...*Chuckle*...

For the fans that were bummed out by Hasbro's ill-fated efforts, I suspect that this is really good news, and I don't think it'd be happening (Announced, anyway), if it didn't stand a reasonable chance of being released. Renegade is not a fly-by-night company.
