Greg Leeds (WotC CEO) Interview

Avast, ye lubbers! The good folks over at ICv2 have posted a two-part interview with the CEO of Wizards of the Coast, Greg Leeds. Part 1 is here and part 2 is here. There be some pretty interesting stuff there in general, and he had this to say about the possibility of more retro products. Yarrrr.

In terms of being sensitive to what the fans are saying, there are rumors that you are looking at some of your old products even all the way back to 1st edition D&D. Are you looking at bringing back any of those products in a collector format or on any other basis?
We are always on the lookout for what opportunities can come up based on what our fans are interested in from the past. I think the “red box” launch was a good example of trying to take advantage of interest in a retro product. We will always be looking for that, but at this point we have nothing to announce along those lines.
