Well, that's shit. I've never been able to play as many games as I would've liked, but it's very disappointing to hear. I don't think there's another game with such good asymmetrical play.

Well, that's extremely disappointing. I didn't get into it as much as I should due to constraints on both time and money, but the game design here was so good. Not only was it a fun card game to play, the game also managed to make the mechanics feel very much like it's theming.

Well damn, guess I should see about catching up on my data pack purchases then.

I'm bummed about this one. It's a game I always wanted to get into (it just looks like it oozes that cyberpunk feel!), but never got around to. Might be too late, now. :(

What aspects of the game does the license apply to? Is there any way it could be revived under another name?

It definitely covers the rule-system itself, as the differences from the original game aren't all that big.

(In fact, it might just cover the rules & the name, as FFG's version didn't use the original setting, which itself was a license by WotC of Cyberpunk 2020, & FFG has used their own devised cyberpunk setting for it & other stuff.)

I believe the big thing is mechanics, which are licensed from the old CCG version.
