Bitcomposer bankrupt
Seems like there won't be a century of chaos. German insolvency announcement page insolvenzbekanntmachungen.de released that bitcompser is bankrupt yesterday:

"810 IN 1144/14 B: In dem Insolvenzantragsverfahren über das Vermögen der bitComposer Entertainment AG, Mergenthalerallee 77, 65760 Eschborn (AG Frankfurt am Main, HRB 92652), vertr. d.: 1.

Bitcomposer has been filed for protection from its creditors already three months ago. They've got the chance to reconstruct their business under their own administration in that period, without success as it seems.

So... who owns CC now?

I imagine they're supposed to auction off the rights now (although it might work differently in Germany?)

Since this company is so obscure we might never learn who they went to.

I think Nordic Games might want to buy Jagged Aliiance as well as Chaos Chronicles. ... Or Paradox or Stardock will intercept it.

I forgot these guys owned Jagged Alliance. That series truly is cursed. Hopefully whoever acquires it releases at least one decent entry before inevitably biting the dust.

The rights are not even important. I would play another game with similar class and gameplay, with a completely different name.
The problem seems to be that no one is able to make a game worth of the name. This is the problem not the license.
You cant make 1st rate games with 2nd and 3rd rate developers. The list of developers who tried is endless and people should start to analyse what made Jagged Alliance 2 so great, developers seem to be unable to understand it.
This one here was particularly dumb, thinking that the fans would find it awesome to play a game with the JA license, pretentious German humor, and otherwise totally different gameplay. Morons.
It certainly wasnt the name that made it great. As the JA name was sold and resold multiple times, in the end it does not matter who owns it, all they make with it is shit.
