HeroClix Bidders Join Forces
« on: December 16, 2008, 12:21:42 PM »
Two companies that were making a play to acquire HeroClix from Topps in the wake of its WizKids shutdown have joined forces.  Catalyst Games, which announced that it had made a bid for all of the WizKids properties and Pinata Games, formed for the purpose of acquiring HeroClix, have formed a strategic alliance, contingent on Catalyst’s successful acquisition of the WizKids properties.
 
If Catalyst’s bid is accepted by Topps, “Pinata will begin as operator of the HeroClix brand immediately,” according to the statement.  If it occurs, the alliance would allow both companies to release new games both together and independently.
