Starting in February, The Fantasy Trip Bestiary is scheduled for release along with a Kickstarter launching for Munchkin Shadowrun which has an expected July 2024 release.

May will see a Kickstarter for an untitled collection of one-page RPGs with an estimated August 2024 release.

July will have the release of another tie-in Munchkin: Age of Sigmar: Dire Domains along with a Kickstarter for Foes 3, the third entry in the line of 3D printable fantasy miniatures.

August has a scheduled Kickstarter for Choose Cthulhu Books 7-10, expanding the offering of choose-your-own-adventure style books covering the classic works of H.P. Lovecraft.

There will also be two Kickstarters for Hexagram, the magazine for The Fantasy Trip with #12 in January for a March release, #13 in June for an August release, and #14 in December for a February 2025 release.

Throughout the year, the company looks to expand on their PDF offerings of classic GURPS books with digital re-releases of Template Toolkit: Spirits in February, Infinite Worlds: Atlantropa in April, Meta-Tech in June, Fantasy Folk: The Reptilian Races in August, Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire in October, and Loadouts: Starship Crew in December.

The release also mentions “semi-secret projects in the works” and one title in November is listed simply as [Redacted]. Meredith Placko said in the update “One is so secret that if I say any more, I'll be [REDACTED]. And just wait for our all-new as-yet-to-be-titled RPG project!” Knowing Steve Jackson Games’s love of exploring conspiracy theories in games, that may very well be the title.

Placko also was sure to point out that “dates are always subject to change based on manufacturing and shipping issues”.

Yeah I'm also baffled that they don't highlight any GRUPS or Dungeon Fantasy releases in all of '24. That's weird. It's as if they don't make TTRPGs any more.

There is a lot of heavy speculation it's because they're working on a new edition of GURPS. Mostly because of several teases they done between their TikTok account and blog over the past year.
Ok - that I did not know. Interesting....thanks. Wouls also explain the lack of GURPS news.

They make 2: GURPS and The Fantasy Trip.
They retain several more in PDF back catalogue mode: Toon, In Nomine, and if one considers them RPGs, Killer and Car Wars (Including Autoduel Champions). Further, there are a few Powered By GURPS standalone GURPS-light powered games: Vorkosigan, Girl Genius, Discworld, WW II.

They were denying a new edition coming last year. Not saying it was impossible, but calling it out as just a rumor.

It's extremely unlikely to see GURPS 5 - not only because there's not enough demand -- and Sean Punch has noted there's barely enough to keep going several times over the last few years -- but also because most of what people are asking for is already in 4th. (see the above links)

Dungeon Fantasy is where the GURPS money is at the moment. And it's not much.
TFT and DF are where the effort goes and where the money is coming in from.

I can't imagine GURPS doing very well unless they make some radical changes to it. Not because it's a bad system, but because I don't think that kind of system is currently en vogue at the moment.
