April 1, 1998
March 31 marks the end of an era - and the beginning of a new one.
Imperium has made a decision that it will release no more Traveller materials. The T4 materials on hand at Imperium continue to be available to the adventure game market through distributors and hobby stores.
Sweetpea has made a decision, with Imperium out of the picture, that it will no longer actively pursue licensing of the Traveller property, devoting instead its energies to its D&D license.
Far Future has re-acquired substantially all rights to all Traveller properties and is negotiating for a new publisher for the foundational role-playing rules.
