UPI reports that some High Republic entries in the Star Wars franchise have been delayed, including both novels and comics:
Adult novel Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule and middle grade novel A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland will now be released on Jan. 5. Young adult novel Into the Dark by Claudia Gray has been moved to Feb. 2.
New release dates for Marvel’s The High Republic comic book series and IDW’s The High Republic Adventures comic book series will be announced at a later date.
This is coming on the heels of reports that IDW staff who were initially furloughed have now been laid off altogether. The covid-19 crisis has clearly had an effect on the Star Wars franchise’s marketing, and now, it’s affected IDW even further, so again, it remains to be seen, how much longer will they be around, after all the missteps they took?
