For years, families have been torn apart by the building of cities and conquering of the seas all in the name of Catan. Now it would seem that you could find the isle of Catan under a different name, or rather new ownership.

Asmodee North America has acquired the license to the English language version of the island of Catan from Mayfair games. This doesn’t mean it’s all over for Mayfair, with both Asmodee and Mayfair games looking to work together to promote Catan Day 2016, the tournament schedule and even the 2016 Catan World Championship.

In response to this acquisition, Asmodee formed Catan Studio Inc, a new creative unit designed to further expand on the game.

This isn’t the first expansion for Asmodee, having recently acquired the publisher known as Fantasy Flight Games, the maker of a series of games including an entire host of Star Wars games including the X-Wing miniature game and the latest Star Wars paper based RPG.

With so many games already under its belt and yet another joining, could you soon see a Star Wars Catan with the entire galaxy conquered on your table? We already have Star Trek Catan so why not? Do you play Settlers of Catan and if so what, if any, versions would you like to see considered for release?
