D&D 5E D&D Beyond Will Delist Two Books On May 17th

D&D Beyond will be permanently removing Volo’s Guide to Monsters and Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes on May 17th in favor of the upcoming Monsters of the Multiverse book, which largely compiles and updates that material.

As per the D&D Beyond FAQ for Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse:

Can I still buy Volo’s Guide to Monsters or Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes on D&D Beyond?
Starting on May 16, you can acquire the streamlined and up-to-date creatures and character race options, as well as a plethora of exciting new content, by purchasing Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse. On May 17, Volo's Guide to Monsters and Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes will be discontinued from our digital marketplace.

If you already own these two books you will still have access to your purchases and any characters or encounters you built with them. They won’t be removed from your purchased sourcebooks. Therefore, if you want the "fluff" and tables in those two tomes in D&D Beyond, you need to purchase them soon.

This is the first time books have been wholesale delisted from the D&D Beyond Platform rather than updated (much like physical book reprints are with errata and changes).

There’s no word from WotC on whether physical books will be discontinued and be allowed to sell out.

Complaints are data, since they tell you that customers are dissatisfied with a decision you have made. You just have to weigh them against other data, and determine whether or not they merit action.
I think they have, which is why we are seeing them following the path that they are.

So, interestingly enough, Lost Mines of Phandelver and Acquisitions Incorporated will be free on D&D Beyon on May 19 for a week, I wonder if their future is limited, too:

I can't see any reason why Lost Mines would be made "legacy" content. Acquisitions Incorporated, maybe, but only due to possible licensing issues.

Well, it's not going to be available in New boxes by the end of the year. I don't thinknit will be hidden or memory holed or anything.

Yeah, it's not the "starter" adventure anymore. It's (soon-to-be) out-of-print. But I don't think they'll legacy-ify the adventure on D&D Beyond. More likely they will have it available for a small cost, or maybe even free. We'll see.
 


unless they make a major change... in what case maybe 2 years... back in 4e days people would have said the same, even as PHB3 came out
They already just said that D&D Beyond is not going anywhere. Why would they get rid of Beyond after just spending a ton of money on it as well. It's likely they intend to use Beyond as the foundation for a virtual tabletop.

unlike in 4e when they came out and said they would take it down in 3 years?!?! don't they have a vested intrest in tell you that? and even IF (big IF) they think that is true today they can not possibly know what they will do after the 2024 books

I keep hearing speculation of a wotc table top, but I don't know why they would try that again when havingothers licence D&D from them is working so well
