Wizards of the Coast Backpedaling From OGL Announcement

Wizards of the Coast, the owner of Dungeons and Dragons, has reportedly scrubbed the announcement of its new Open Gaming License (OGL) following a backlash from the game’s community. The OGL shows how fans and third-party publishers can make and monetize their own D&D content. The new OGL will render the previous version as “unauthorized” and introduce rules requiring anyone making money through D&D elements to report earnings to Wizards of the Coast. The changes will mainly affect larger companies making significant sums of money from their own D&D-adjacent products. It’s unclear when the updated OGL will be made public or if changes to its text will be made.
