Fandom has announced the sale of Cortex RPG and related assets to Dire Wolf Digital. According to the press release, this sale includes Tales of Xadia: The Dragon Prince Roleplaying Game. The financial aspect of the deal was not disclosed.
Tales of Xadia: The Dragon Prince Roleplaying Game will continue under Dire Wolf Digital’s wings. The development of Tales of Xadia: The Sunfire Chronicle was mentioned in the official press release, but the release date is unclear.
Michael Chiang, Chief Business Officer at Fandom, said:
“As we looked to exit the RPG business with our recent sale of D&D Beyond to Hasbro, we were laser focused on finding Cortex the right home with a company who would nurture and grow the business with a fan-first mindset. I’m confident we found that with Dire Wolf Digital. Dire Wolf’s enthusiasm and passion for the RPG space, as well as their intent to dive right in and grow the product with a new expansion already in development, will ensure fans won’t miss a beat and are well taken care of for years to come.”
Scott Martins, President of Dire Wolf Digital, added:
“We’re incredibly excited by the prospect of pairing what Cortex and Tales of Xadia have begun with our expertise in creating digital experiences. We are huge fans of The Dragon Prince, and we’re looking forward to Season 4 along with everyone else. We’re especially excited about working with Wonderstorm on even more great experiences for fans of Tales of Xadia going forward.”
Cortex is a world-building tabletop RPG system from the creators of D&D Beyond. In this system, players choose between different genres and a set of modular rules and mechanics to create their game.
As part of this deal, Cortex designer Cam Banks will move to Dire Wolf Digital as Creative Director and continue working on Cortex.
