WotC D&D Direct--Learn About Upcoming D&D On April 21st!

D&D Direct is a 30-minute video which WotC will be releasing on April 21st at 9am Pacific Time (5pm BST, if I have my time zones correct). They'll be using it to reveal stuff about upcoming D&D projects (including video games and entertainment). The video will be presented by Anna Prosser and B. Dave Walters.

This is being billed in an emailed announcement entitled "Learn Everything That’s Happening This Year for Dungeons & Dragons" as the "first ever D&D Direct", so presumably there are more planned.




The D&D Team at Wizards of the Coast is excited to debut D&D Direct, a jam-packed thirty-minute video presentation on April 21 at 9:00 AM Pacific Time.

Tune in to see exclusive reveals from the world's greatest roleplaying game, including video games, entertainment, and more, guided by hosts Anna Prosser and B. Dave Walters.

D&D Direct will be broadcast on the D&D YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/DNDWizards) and Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/dnd) channels.

To find out more on D&D Direct go to dnd.wizards.com and follow the official D&D social media accounts for more updates.

See you on April 21 at 9:00 AM PT for the first-ever D&D Direct!

So the D&D developer community is small. Relatively speaking, at a certain level anyway. And they talk to each other. And I think that leads to synergies. Like this for instance.
I remember in early 2019, there were a lot of freelance writers suddenly putting out seafaring material, while Dragon Talk was discussing underwater combat rules, for no apparent reason...and then Ghoats of Saltmarsh was announced.

I still preferred the other possible name for that book:

Final prediction before the reveal.

I’m hopeful it will be Spelljammer, but I won’t get my hopes up. If they do Spelljammer it’s more than likely going to be a mutilated version of the setting that only uses familiar place names and a few key concepts.

If it is Spelljammer, the two options are still a pure setting book with a little adventure and/or a bunch of hooks…or an adventure path taking PCs from a planet into space. I doubt it will be a hub-based adventure anthology featuring the Rock of Bral as they’re also releasing Radiant Citadel soon. The AP seems far more likely. But I could see it being Minsc and Boo’s Guide to Wildspace.

Anyway, best of luck to everyone in getting what they hope for tomorrow.

If it's as good as the ravenloft revamp, I'd be pretty pleased.
 


That's risky in that there's little reason to expect the Guild to be open to the setting for several months
It doesn't need to be flagged as spelljammer, the locations mentioned in the blurb are all in the Forgotten Realms.

They can release it as a FR adventure, then update it to Spelljammer as and when it becomes available.

It's a fair assumption but I think that Cook and co. have been planning this one for a while. Monte would have waited for the revision and just released the Cypher version with an eye to releasing had he inside information plus he's well known for his Planescape work and cashes in on that reputation periodically like with Numenera (post core emphasis on the weird and crazier elements that are more akin to Planescape than what was in the core), Between Worlds (could be the wrong title there) from 3.5 era and some of his other Malhavoc Press work.
 


Given that 9am in Seattle is 4am the following day in Auckland, I look forward to waking up tomorrow to find a thorough breakdown of the various announcements here on EN World.
Yep, the stream is at 2am here in Melbourne. I'm interested, but not THAT interested. Looking forward to posting my thoughts on page 216 of the ENWorld discussion thread tomorrow morning, once it's already had time to veer wildly offtopic into a flamewar about diversity at least 6 times...

They are just good at educated guesswork, like some of us here. I don't think they are privy to secret information.

At least they're doing it at the start of the day in a far west time zone, not the end as they sometimes do. Geography is not the friend of events scheduled late on western side of the US--pretty much the entire planet is ahead of them.
