Positive. I don't know how they can possibly integrate 4e with the rest, and would be perfectly fine if they just dumped it, but I see this news as the most positive thing to happen with D&D in many years.

Because asians can't draw fantasy landscapes, right?
Seriously, if they get the right studio, this might be the only thing I'm actually looking forward from the new edition.
Still, I'm skeptical on the project. I'll give it a try once it's out to see how it goes.

Honestly Cyderak, they don't have much choice. It's not like they have an art staff anymore. So, any art they do have will be commission in any case. Who they commission will depend on lots of things, but, it's always going to be out-sourced. D&D art hasn't been in-house for over a decade.
The rules don't give the DM their authority. The consent of the players does. - Mallus

There's still too much we don't know. How modular is modular? What are they trying to mimic from previous editions, and how will those aspects work alongside the aspects mimicked from other editions.
And to be honest, WOTC has been long on promise and short on delivery lately. I was really excited about the possibility of a virtual table top 4 years ago.
I'll try to follow the news about it. I may be able to convince my group to try to playtest. When the complete ruleset comes out I'll give it a look-see. It's just too hard to get worked up about it right now, when so many things will change from what I think I'm hearing at the moment to when the game is released.
I hope to change my opinion to hopeful, eventually.

I'm neutral, but curious on the new edition. Right now it sounds like a bad infomercial. It dices, it slices, it does everything! All for the low low price of $19.95, but wait there's more. Time will tell if it is one of those late night purchase's that end up in every garage sale or something that you can't live without.

I find myself somewhere between neutral and positive. I barely played any 4E and I am an active Pathfinder player. Yet, I think that the new edition could be good for our hobby. However, I think it will be hard if not impossible to reunify a greatly fragmented base. Also, it seems that a LOT of people want different things from a new edition.

I want D&D to feel like D&D again.
I enjoyed 4E well enough, but I felt like I was playing... something other than D&D.
I believe Mearls & co. really do want to make a version that we will all want to play, and that simply must have appeal to fans of older editions.
If 5E fails, I believe it will be done as well as possible, and just be sad proof that you CAN'T please all (or most of) the fans with a single edition.
