Welcome news indeed!
The unusual way this news broke, along with some inconsistent-sounding elements such as the fact that this studio would be picking up the LotR/Hobbit franchise, led me to doubt its veracity. However, this seems to be confirmation from an official source that some of the Specialist Games will see the light of day once more (although no comments about LotR). I’m not sure why GW chose to release the information this way rather than making a grand announcement but the return of some classic games is certainly exciting news for the hobby. It seems that this may have been a blunder and GW did not intend the news to go public yet.
Caution does need to be exercised though. At the moment GW are not promising anything more than “new boxed games and stand-alone sets” rather than a fully relaunched product range with continued support. So, all-in-all not too far away from what I predicted earlier.
