Cubicle 7 to cease publication of The One Ring & Adventures in Middle-earth Can't Post

I received an email from Cubicle 7 with Horrible, Awful, Very Bad News that led me to the post below. Please, someone tell me this is a bad dream or a prank:

Date Posted: 27-11-2019


'I am with you at present,' said Gandalf, 'but soon I shall not be. I am not coming to the Shire.'

We have some very unfortunate and unexpected news to share. Contractual differences arose recently which we have been unable to resolve, and so we have decided to end our licensing agreement with Sophisticated Games. It is with regret that we have made this very tough decision to withdraw.

This means we will cease publishing The One Ring and Adventures in Middle-earth™ in the first half of 2020. Unfortunately, this doesn’t give us enough time to release the much-anticipated The One Ring – The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game second edition.

As many of you know, our first edition of The One Ring is eight years old, and we had high hopes of a full product line to support our second edition. Our team have worked incredibly hard on this new edition; with many of the announced titles already written and edited, so being very close to completion makes this decision even harder.

Although we were very close to the finish line when these issues arose, as gamers ourselves we did not feel it was right for the game, or fair to you, to release a new edition which we would be unable to support.

We appreciate how passionate so many of you are, especially those who have followed our journey from first edition or have pre-ordered the second edition. Thank you for your support over the years.

There's more of course, largely having to do with pre-orders and refunds; but you can read all of ,that at the link. I am heart-broken at this sudden, awful news.
