I suspect The One Ring license business has a lot more to do with Amazon and the upcoming streaming series than anything else (I'm betting Amazon made an "offer you can't refuse" for a master merchandising license, and since a while back Christopher Tolkien stepped down so the grandkids...who are more openly money-hungry as opposed to "protective of the property"...could take over, well....). And from what I've heard about the new edition of Shadowrun I wouldn't be so sure of that second one keeping on so well. FFG has always seemed leaps and bounds more stable and professional than Catalyst, and certainly has sold a lot more product in the last several years. All that said, I don't think "the industry is dying." It's pretty much always been a niche market with razor-thin margins and a lot of companies operating on a wing and a prayer, just one or two bad months away from disaster/bankruptcy. Dungeons and Dragons may be the biggest it's ever been, but everything else is a very distant second in terms of sales and mainstream awareness. Though D&D has a huge advantage in marketing, being backed by a multibillion dollar corporation (Hasbro). But regardless of what happens with FFG's RPGs or anyone else, there'll always be groups of crazy nerds (said with affection) with enough gumption and resources to create RPGs/RPG companies, and they'll continue to come and go for years, if not decades to come. Especially with the rise of crowdfunding platforms and the like, though those might not be so viable for licensed properties.
