New GenCon Sponsors in 2002?

Most convention-goers know that Wizards of the Coast is getting out of the convention business — at least, they’re stepping out of their role as sponsors of Origins and GenCon. GAMA already has “custody” of Origins, but after this year’s GenCon (which starts Thursday), who will take over? According to a post at Gaming Report, the most likely candidate is WizKids. Could this rumor be true? I’ll ask around at GenCon, and let you know if I hear anything.
