So due to recent briefings on Modi stopping the MC3 line, and hands the game to Cabinet; what do you see for the game in the future 2022 and onwards? Loving this game, and the urge to get hold of some information is a craving. I’m sure there are many more like myself concerning this matter. We can read about Warzone Eternal or some form of Warzone (old miniature wargame MC universe) is under development, so a future for MC is plausible.
Will there be a new edition, or will MC3 be continued?
Will MC still use 2d20 system, or will it be replaced by a new system?
Will new lore be kept (Whitestar) in future releases, or will it belong to Modi MC3?
The answers to your questions will only be known to the Cardinal, but my guess:
New license holder means pretty much a new system. Unless Modiphius allowed the new holder to use the 2D20-system of Modiphius.
WIthout Modiphius holding the licence, I think this would be the end for MC3.
As mentioned by @Michael_Romanov, unless Modiphius licence the 2d20 system to the new licence holders, then the new licensees would have to use a different system.
As for the new lore, it depends whether that is now considered part of the MC setting licence, or whether that’s still Modiphius-only IP - which is all fine print stuff.
The Devil’s run use 2d20 and is published by Red scar publishing, so maybe they can continue using 2d20 if they can get a similar deal with Modiphius. I would love to see 3rd edition continuing.
I just saw this and finding that there will be no more MC3 is horrifying to me. I am very sad, as MC3 is probably my favorite 2d20 game, and I have read the entire series of books through over and over. I would have killed for another edition.
There might be something “brewing” by other fans, but nothing until a phd has been gotten.
There may come another edition at some point, but that wouldn’t be a continuation of MC3, but another, separate edition, quite likely using a different mechanic.
