Rocket Age leaving Cubicle 7, going to Ken Spencer

Rocket Age is moving on from Cubicle 7.
Cubicle 7 Entertainment has announced that several of its licensed properties are moving on to pastures new. Five games in all are affected : Ken Spencer’s Rocket Age, and the 7eme Cercle translations Qin: The Warring States, Kuro, Yggdrasill and Keltia. June 30th 2017 is the last day you will be able to order any of these books in print or PDF through Cubicle 7.
This was posted on EnWorld on Friday. It continued on with this...
Rocket Age is returning to designer Ken Spencer and apparently an announcement about a new publisher for the game will be made shortly. There were apparently books in development (at what stage is unclear), including a rumoured Jupiter book, so it sounds like these will see the light of day with a new company. Rocket Age had been with published by Cubicle 7, using their Vortex house system designed originally by Dave Chapman for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time & Space for the last five years.
See the rest of it in the link above.

There was a Facebook announcement from Ken stating that Rocket Age will, in fact, continue to be powered by the Vortex System.
I am happy to announce that I have acquired the Rocket Age IP from Cubicle 7. There will be an official announcement detailing where to go to purchase Rocket Age products, our new company, and such in a few days.
A few things:
Rocket Age will continue to be published, though there is going to be a short transitionary period (a week or so) while we get set up. The existing products will be put back out for sale as soon as we can.
Rocket Age will continue to use the Vortex system.
There will be new content, and with more frequency than there has been in the past.
For the first time as the owner, Rocket Rangers, Away!
So this appears to be wonderful news!
