I can see faction name changes. Perhaps some kind of middle ground between the 'current' Old World and what it is in AoS.

Do we see a time portal between AoS and old world for Sigmarines to pour through and save the Old World from destruction? Time paradox be damned?

I don't myself. They seem pretty certain to keep the End Times as canon. This is being compared to the Horus Heresy specialist games for 40k, so kind of like asking if Modern 40k will flood back into 30k to change the timeline. Besides, there's no reason to. All the new stuff will continue to sell fine for AoS so there's no need to move them into the 'historical' game. Not to mention if they want to cash in on the video game crowd it wont amount to much. None of its in the video games!

The only way they'd retcon the End Times, is if The Old World became dramatically successful. As in, pulling numbers, consistently comparable to a core game.

I don't expect that. I expect it to do well, probably the best "specialist Game" outside of the Horus Heresy, but it won't do as well as AoS or 40k.

I dont expect it to do all that well because almost everything GW produce is crazy overpriced nowadays IMO.

Yet somehow the company is doing dramatically well. We'll see upon launch, but I expect it will do just fine.

Perhaps. I honestly dont know anything about their financials, other than feeling they are too expensive.

Also Iím not sure that is the case in Australia. I remember about 10 years ago they had a big expansion, opening lots of new stores. About 5 - 6 years ago a lot if them closed, and havenít reopened since.
They may be profitable, but I feel like they are priced in such a way that the playerbase has diminished or shrunk from what it used to be.

To be fair, Aus and NZ just get screwed. GW clearly doesn't prioritize those markets at all. :(

I feel you mate. I'm a dual citizen with NZ. If I ever moved back home, my hobbying would... evaporate, lol.

Yeah unfortunately I feel Aussie land got screwed pretty hard. It looks like GW has no interest in going back either. There's massive expansion in the States and Canada, and tournament numbers are way up. I've heard it's even getting pretty big in Japan. possibly helped by the fact they seem to be treating Japan as a bit of a test bed. (Like with 40k Heroes series for example.)

The thing is, they just consistently screwed us on price. They should have realised when it was more cost effective for people to buy from the US or UK stores, pay for shipping and still be saving money. When they cut off international shipping on their website, is roughly when they started to close their newly opened stores.

I like!👆
I was just thinking of getting the tzeentch battletome. Iíll hold off for now. I have enough tzeentch for a 3000 point army from old models but I really like the tzangors and have none.
