Because I don't have enough to do, did you know that I am about to release a brand new sourcebook on Thay? Yep. I am writing it with my friends Ed Greenwood and Alan Patrick. It is shaping up to be a really great book. It will enable the reader to look past the veil and into what day to day life in Thay really looks like. It will have tons of lore and an adventure which I wrote. It will be a POD product on the DM's Guild. We are in layout now so I hope to announce a date in the next 30 days or so.

Oh, here is a sample of some of the awesome art. Check out this Thayan noble at the market with her two undead porters."

Has WotC hinted at announced a new Realms setting book? If so I missed it.
We know one of the planned upcoming setting books will revisit a setting that has already appeared in 5e. Given that SCAG was published before the current setting book format was standardized, most of its crunch material has been lifted for other books, and it's not terribly admired, there's some reason to believe that the Realms will be this revisited setting...

Can't wait to see this Thay book, as the region has been criminally under-used in 5e, even though it's one of the setting's most well-known locations...

Since time has passed and some people have forgotten what Ray Winninger said, unless something has changed since his announcement many month ago, they were reviving two old settings, revisiting one setting already covered during 5E, and working on two brand-new settings, and none of these five are connected to MtG at all. This is why people keep wondering about a new Realms book, because it makes the most sense to be the one being revisited. This was also said after Van Richten's came out, so it does not count for the revisited setting.

Sometimes I wish they would just come out and say (tentatively) we are working on product "x" with the caveat that things may change.
