After nearly seven years of being a solid player in the collectible card game genre, the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game will be coming to an end. As the official Blizzard Entertainment announcement indicates the current expansion, Timewalkers: Reign of Fire, is to be the final release.
The WoW TCG was originally licensed through Upper Deck with Cryptozoic taking over in 2010.
We wanted to take a moment to thank all of you World of Warcraft Trading Card Game players out there for your support of the game for close to seven years.
We’ve had a blast working on it, and we knew that Set 21, Timewalkers: Reign of Fire would really grab everyone’s attention. In addition to delivering original and fun gameplay mechanics and giving players a new way to explore the story of Warcraft III, it’s stuffed with every single one of the much-sought-after Loot cards from each of the previous sets.
Set 21 represents something else as well: it’s the climactic last set for the WoW TCG. We are grateful for being able to collaborate with the artists and everyone else who helped make this game a reality all these years. We’re also thankful for all the players and retailers who’ve participated in the community globally. You made ripping open booster packs, discovering the wonders they held, and then building decks and taking them into battle a truly awesome experience.
Thank you all again for your support in making the WoW TCG one of the most epic trading card games of all time.
