Is ascension (card game) being killed?

I read in the spcefic forum that it's basically being pulled off the App Store around the summer, and all the IAP's expansions and stuff will only be used on offline. Is that true? And if it is, damn... I really liked this game :/

It is true. Playdek had a contract withe creator of Asecnsion. But because of a disagreement, playdek has to pull the app of the store. However, at the same time, another ascension app created by the other company will appear on the store.

So... We'll basically have to spend another however much money we spent to buy the expansions all over again?

We'll, that sucks... But it's still a great game. I'll probably buy them again. Do you know if the new ascension game has a release date or window? Or just 'soon'

I think it was around June this year. Don't remember exactly.

Make sure you use iTunes rather than iCloud for your backups if you want to get the old Ascension game back after a restore or on a new device.

But I won't want it back since I won't be able to play online
