What upcoming TTRPGs are there? What's coming in the future from now?

First post here, folks.

I hope there isn't already a topic like this. If there is one, then maybe the mods can close this one down or merge this post with the original thread. Either way, I'm wondering what NEW tabletop RPGs are coming up. What's coming in March? April? May? And beyond? I don't know where to look, though I have done some digging.

The news on the front page of the site is probably the best place to start. On a quick glance I see articles about the Xadia RPG, Avatar RPG, and about a dozen crowdfunded games (including The One Ring). Morrus (the site owner) also has some info about his new Awfully Cheerful Engine and the upcoming Advanced 5e games there.
 

I am sure there are general lists, like the threads here when we voted for most anticipated(?) games of 2021, but specific and firm release dates are a thing of the past, as in pre-Covid.
 


Here is the thread listing the top 10 from the vote:


And here is the thread with all the nominations that we voted on:

The only problem with those, and this isn't a criticism of you or ENworld, to be clear, is that because they have no restrictions other than soft time-of-release ones, new/original RPGs tend to get completely swamped by new editions or merchandised RPGs. That's natural and expected. Maybe next time I should suggest a top 5 for new/original RPGs derived from the same voting or something.

Still, some cool original stuff makes it through - c.f. Brancalonia most recently!

Yeah, I could see that being a problem!
 


With the ways polling works, I'd reccommend having a separate round. But either way, this is a pretty solid idea.
Yeah I think a separate round would be ideal, just looking to minimize effort because I think it would be a really nice thing to pull out of there. I've got nothing against sequels and new editions, half or more of the RPGs I've bought over the years have been those - but what really excites me (and often my group) is usually more novel stuff.
