As Gamespot.com announces, Games Workshop has licensed its Blood Bowl brand to Cyanide for use in an upcoming line of video games. At the same time, Cyanide signed over to GW its Chaos League brand, ending any dispute over the similarities between Chaos League and Blood Bowl.
I suspect this dispute and settlement has been coming for some time. My original title for my Blood Bowl novel was Sudden Death, which I had to change due to a conflict. It seems clear now that the problem came from Chaos League: Sudden Death. Perhaps this means I could now use the title for another Blood Bowl novel.
Either way, this is great news. I’m happy that all involved were able to come to an amicable solution, and I can barely wait to play a Blood Bowl computer game!
