Blizzard Entertainment is rumoured to be terminating its licensing deal with US manga firm Tokyopop.

According to Lorehound, the World Of Warcraft studio is parting company with the publisher due to difficulties overseeing licensed projects.

The two firms announced a partnership to produce manga comics based on the MMO phenomenon. Their collaborative efforts include Dragons Of Outland, Shaman and the Warcraft Legends series.

The report also suggested that the long-running financial troubles of Borders Group have impacted on Tokyopop, who recently laid off several senior editors.

Blizzard and Tokyopop are yet to officially announce that they are parting company.
