5E Is Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden the New D&D Adventure?

It looks likely that the upcoming D&D adventure is indeed an Icewind Dale based storyline called Rime of the Frostmaiden! I can't vouch for the veracity of this, but I was cc'd into a Tweet by Navy DM on Twitter who says they found it on Reddit.

Feel the cold touch of death in this adventure for the world's greatest role playing game.

UPDATE -- the awesome Geek Native ran the small cover screenshot through an image enhancing application, to create the larger image below.

There's a post here on Reddit which says "The DnD Beyond YouTube channel posted a trailer for a new book, Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden, then immediately deleted it." The post has been removed since. I found the above image posted by somebody called smightmight, who looks like they screen grabbed it from the video before it was removed.

The Frostmaiden is one of the names of Auril, an evil goddess in the Forgotten Realms. You can read more about her on the Forgotten Realms wiki.

Rime is ice which forms from water droplets on surfaces.

An Icewind Dale setting was the current favourite guess for the location of the new D&D adventure based on various hints from WotC, including this snowy owlbear t-shirt!

That post just got deleted on the DNDNext Reddit. It would be legit.

It seems legit, indeed! And the cover is pretty!

Personally, I only hope it isn't a full campaign, for 1st level characters advancing then to 10th or 15th level. My players would love to have some adventures in the wild cold North, but they wouldn't like a full one year campaign on it...

I would love a collection of semi independent adventures, and some good chapters on Icewinter Dale as a setting, NPCs, adventure seeds...

Here goes another 50$!

The only thing that displeases me with this is: yet another cultist shenanigans.

So, we will probably see the reprint of the awesome gazetteer of IWD as printed in Legacy of the Crystal Shard.

I'm hoping for expanded travel rules if its to be a sandboxy adventure, something like the cold version of ToA.

At least 10 levels of campaign please with something akin to the Frostbite 3e book tacked on and an Icewind Dale gazetteer. That would be a sweet little book. Particularly if it could be combined with Storm Kings Thunder. I always felt that one was a little hollow on its own.
