Topps closes WizKids

Topps has ceased operations of its WizKids division, maker of collectible miniatures games and discontinued its product lines.
Publish date:

Topps purchased WizKids in 2003, three years after the Bellvue-based company was founded by game designer Jordan Weisman.

The company went on to produce games based on science-fiction, video game and comic book properties, including many of the major characters from both DC and Marvel's comic universes.

Scott Silverstein, Topps’ CEO said: “This was an extremely difficult decision. While the company will still actively pursue gaming initiatives, we feel it is necessary to align our efforts more closely with Topps current sports and entertainment offerings, which are being developed within our New York office.”

In a statement posted to WizKids’ website yesterday, Topps said it would: “Immediately pursue strategic alternatives so that viable brands and properties, including HeroClix, can continue without noticeable disruption.

"To that end, WizKids will continue supporting Buy it By the Brick redemptions for Arkham Asylum, and the December Organized Play events for HeroClix.”
