On January 9th, 2012, WotC officially announced that it was working on a new edition of D&D, although it was late 2010 that WotC first seriously started thinking about a new edition. This was prompted by divisions in the RPG community: "First, we had a divided audience. Second, if we kept altering the core of 4th Edition, the division would only become more apparent." - Mike Mearls.
