This sounds very reasonable.

I'd also assume it could have something to do with the Hasbro vs. Atari thing … By the way, who gets the royalties now ? Still Atari ?

To put it extremely cynical, I'd use this imaginary statement by Atari (beware ! strong satire !) :
"We're extremely pleased that our schemes to bring out another (A)D&D game before the license was taken from us came to a fruitful result of a developer having to shut down - which leaves all of the royalties to us."

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
