Cubicle 7 Also Announces A New 'C7d20' System

Joining Paizo (which has hinted at plans to update Pathfinder), Kobold Press (with it's Black Flag project), MCDM (which is working on a new game), and--of course--Level Up: Advanced 5th Edition (which was released last year), Cubicle 7 has announced a new C7d20 System.

You heard it here first! C7d20, our brand new system, is in development. Building on the great d20 games we know and love, our system will offer all the exciting action-packed adventures players expect from a d20 fantasy game, as well as the broader styles of gaming that we’ve brought to 5e in Doctors and Daleks, Adventures in Middle-earth, and Uncharted Journeys.

C7d20 will be a complete rule set that is compatible with 5e — you’ll be able to use all of your favourite 5e books and supplements, including Uncharted Journeys and Broken Weave. A core rulebook for C7d20 will launch later this year and you’ll be able to see hints of what is to come when Broken Weave launches. We’re involved in discussions about open licensing and will have more news on this as the situation develops.

That someone better
WotC have done a really good job of getting all the major 3rd party producers for D&D to either band together against them or shift to their own system in record time. And all for the low, low cost of all their community goodwill and zero new revenue.

Great work WotC execs!

Wotzi has utterly surprised me, and have seemingly waived the white flag:

The question now seems: Do these 3pp stick to their guns?

Creating a superior game system and convincing people to play it are two separate tasks. And doing one does not guarantee the other.

EDIT: Well then. Looks like WotC has backed down. Thanks for the good news, @Jaeger!

Wizards of the Coast Press Release said:
These live survey results are clear. You want OGL 1.0a. You want irrevocability. You like Creative Commons.

The feedback is in such high volume and its direction is so plain that we're acting now.

We are leaving OGL 1.0a in place, as is. Untouched.
We are also making the entire SRD 5.1 available under a Creative Commons license.
You choose which you prefer to use.

This Creative Commons license makes the content freely available for any use. We don't control that license and cannot alter or revoke it. It's open and irrevocable in a way that doesn't require you to take our word for it. And its openness means there's no need for a VTT policy. Placing the SRD under a Creative Commons license is a one-way door. There's no going back.
Yep, that's pretty cut-and-dry. Looks like we're getting exactly what we wanted!

(Except the people who wanted WotC to go bankrupt or whatever, that's probably not happening anytime soon.)

This discussion is focused on 5e compatible rules….not a new rules set and not one on PF2. I’m kinda missing the point of ORC as far as the design intent…which considering the WoTC related news, my interest in this is lower going forward is about as low as it can go.
