We actually don't know whether IDW has lost the Godzilla license or not. It seemed that way for a while since they cancelled the last volume of Complete Rulers of Earth and made no announcements about future Godzilla comics. However, they are republishing Kingdom of Monsters this year, so it's possible they still have the license and just aren't doing anything with it.

@KOTM: I’m a little disappointed about that (the fact that IDW is publishing G:CRoE Vol. 2 so late). I know why they’re doing, but it seems I’ve wasted money completing my Rulers of Earth collection (if you don’t believe me, check out my profile under “Books”.
