Ah, yes, I did my math wrong. Strange New Worlds to To Boldly Go was fifteen months. I forgot to carry the year when I did the numbers.

7-2-17 REPOST

This is a rundown of where things are on the Second Edition side in terms of upcoming sets. It will be updated as things happen.

Project Ashur
In: Playtesting and Creative/Rules review
What's going on? Playtesting is going along well at this point. Rules and Creative are looking at the set and giving notes as appropriate to their respective departments.
Anticipated release: Fall 2017 with an emphasis on not mucking up Worlds.

Project Frontier
In: Design
What's going on? Design is designing. It is still early in the process.
Anticipated release: XX/XX/17. Yes, the release date has been picked out and the obviousness will become clearer once that date and product details are revealed.

Project Excelsior
What is it: A new format designed to address most of, but not all, concerns brought up through project Awaken.
In: Playtesting
What's going on? The card pool is still being fine tuned. You can help by testing either with a friend at your leisure.
Anticipated release: We're still hammering down a good date, but make no mistake, it will be coming.

It looks like 2E's getting three new-card products before the ball drops on 2017, but only one "full size" product, more than a year away, for 2018.

Is that right, or does it just mean that boutiques that haven't even been discussed could come into existence, germinate and flourish in the intervening months?

One of the effects of changes to design is that there is less lead time in making expansions. This is one of the ways that the editions drastically differ as they plan a little further out, but it gives us a little more flexibility.

While Ashur goes into production, Barca is just starting up and those are the only two full sized expansions were looking at right now. By contrast, First Edition has four that are being worked on in some form right now.

This doesn't mean that we'll have more or less expansions, just that they come together differently.

What is it: A product celebrating the past and future of Second Edition. There will be [REDACTED] and [REDACTED], similar to [REDACTED]'s [REDACTED].
What's going on: A design team has been formed, but the timing couldn't be worked out for 2017. Will look to the future.
Anticipated release: XX/XX/18.

Project Barca
What is it: A full sized expansion! The themes are previewed in the coming next blurb on your cover sheets.
What's going on? A team and theme are selected. The set is in testing.

Update January 2017

This is a rundown of where things are on the Second Edition side in terms of upcoming sets. It will be updated as things happen.

Project Anniversary
In: Design Postponed indefinitely but not scrapped!
What is it: A product celebrating [REDACTED]. There will be [REDACTED] and [REDACTED], similar to [REDACTED].
What's going on: A design team has been formed, but the timing couldn't be worked out for 2017. Currently stalled.
Anticipated release: XX/XX/18.

Project Barca
What is it: A full sized expansion! The themes are [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] with a bit of [REDACTED] for good measure.
What's going on? The set is finishing pre-production. Rules and Creative got it at the tail end of 2017 and are currently reviewing. Things are getting finalized before we head off to production.
Anticipated release: March 2018.

Project Defiance
What is it: A celebration of [REDACTED]. Imagine if [REDACTED] and [REDACTED] had an [REDACTED] baby.
What's going on? A team is designing. Testing recently got their first glimpse.
Anticipated release: When this is ready, it will come out at the next most obvious/convenient date.

Project Warp Pack
What is it: A [REDACTED] expansion based on [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED]. This is going to be a bottom up set that will appeal to [REDACTED].
What's going on: The team has assembled and is zeroing in on what makes each group tick, do they need more, etc.
Anticipated release: Fall/Winter 2018.

Project War Games
What is it: Paired decks meant to go at it against each other. Similar to the Duel Decks found in Magic, these are meant to be epic matchups.
What's going on: A team has been assembled and are figuring out the decks they want to build.
Anticipated release: ? It will depend on if the team wants AIs (which will add months to the release) or new cards (which could easily add six months to the release)

You need to update your calendar. That said, only the fact that i have to check the time to see if it is today or tomorrow when i date something has prevented me from making this mistake so far this year...
