"Last year we announced the transfer of the HeroQuest trademark from Moon Design Publications to Hasbro. As part of that change of ownership we were able to continue selling our HeroQuest RPG products for a time, but that period comes to an end next month. These titles will be officially out-of-print permanently, so if you would like to make a purchase at Chaosium.com or DriveThruRPG please do so while you can!", said Chaosium head of licensing Michael O'Brien.
In April 2020, Moon Design Publications published the Questworlds System Reference Document (SRD) so independent publishers could use the HeroQuest RPG core rules system for other game worlds and settings.
"In due course we will be rebadging and rereleasing our HeroQuest RPG line of products as Questworlds. The rules themselves will remain unchanged", said Michael O'Brien.
