So 5.5 coming in 2024?
Dungeons & Dragons will receive a major rules update in 2024. Today, during the “Future of D&D Panel” at D&D Celebration, a panel of the D&D design team’s top figures announced that Wizards of the Coast was planning to release new versions of the core Dungeons & Dragons rulebooks in 2024 for the game’s 50th anniversary. When announcing the new products, panelists Jeremy Crawford, Chris Perkins, Liz Schuh, and Ray Winninger specifically did not refer to the books as the kickoff of a new “edition” of the game. In fact, they noted that the new core rulebooks would be backwards compatible with existing Fifth Edition books and were a “new evolution” of the game.
@daermadm “The Future of D&D panel also teased the release of two “classic” settings in 2022 and a third “classic” setting on the calendar for 2023.”
Since they have already done Forgotten Realms, and Ravenloft. I’m guessing they will reboot Greyhawk, DragonLance, and maybe Darksun. Given the snowflake and feelings now in D&D; Darksun probably won’t be selected. I wouldn’t mind seeing a Empire of Netherese setting emerge.
