It is my sad duty to report that Wizards of the Coast, Inc. placed the Star Wars Trading Card GameÂ® on indefinite hold. This includes the previously announced release of the Rise of the Empire expansion that was slated for August 2005. The following is the dialogue I was given permission to share from my contact at Wizards: My response: Their reply: This comes as little surprise to the fan/player base. The writing's been on the wall for some time, but I was confident we'd at least get the RotE expansion. Alas this was not to be. The self-same fan/player base on Rebelbasers is working to build a "Player's Committee" similar to, but as yet not sanctioned like, the Player's Committee that exists for the Star Wars CCG. This is truly a sad day for Star Wars TCG players everywhere.
