The first of the five books, Keys from the Golden Vault, will arrive in winter 2023. At Tuesday's press preview, Chris Perkins, Game Design Architect for D&D, described it as “Ocean’s Eleven meets D&D” and an anthology of short adventures revolving around heists, which can be dropped into existing campaigns.

In Spring 2023, giants get a sourcebook just like their traditional rivals, the dragons, did in Fizban's Treasury of Dragons. Bigby Presents: Glory of the Giants will be a deep dive into hill, frost, fire, cloud, and storm giants, plus much more.

Summer 2023 will have two releases. The Book of Many Things is a collection of creatures, locations, and other player-facing goodies related to that most famous D&D magic item, the Deck of Many Things. Then “Phandelver Campaign” will expand the popular Lost Mine of Phandelver from the D&D Starter Set into a full campaign tinged with cosmic horror.

And then last, but certainly not least, in Fall 2023, WotC revives another classic D&D setting – Planescape. Just like Spelljammer: Adventures in Space, Planescape will be presented as a three-book set containing a setting guide, bestiary, and adventure campaign in a slipcase. Despite the Spelljammer comparison they did not confirm whether it would also contain a DM screen.

More information on these five titles will be released when we get closer to them in date.

If you watch the video or read the FAQ, they never say that you will be able to use the 2014 books. You won’t be able to. This will be by design. They did say you will be able to use the adventures and expansions. They want you to buy the new big three. It is what it is, so if you walk into a public game post D&D One, you will be bringing your anniversary edition books.

But that wasn't what Retreater was asking. Retreater was asking "what do?" about running a public game, but having two different books.

And frankly, if you are running a public game, and you don't like the rules... then you announce you are changing those rules. I don't use the PHB Sorcerer, I made a homebrew. How do I contend with the conflict? I either let people use my sorcerer, or if they insist, they can use the inferior PHB sorcerer. Easy fix and open communication.

And again, many of the biggest most foundational changes in this UA to date.... aren't player options. So there is no difference between deciding how to handle grappling changes between 2014 and 2024 and deciding on if you include homebrew in your game. Now, maybe there will be bigger differences, maybe the 2014 PHB will never be used again except by the people who choose to continue using it, but right now? Right now these changes are all very minor.

A business executive is answerable to their owner/shareholders not to their customers. If an executive make the decision to produce a lower ROI product they are not going to have a job for long. Changing that is the subject for a discussion somewhere not on this site. Preferably somewhere with a nice bar.
And we're back to my extreme distaste for publically-traded companies.
