WotC WotC Removes Release Dates From Promo Images For 2024

On Friday, WotC shared a bunch of images of 2024's D&D releases, which included release dates for each book.
The images were initially shared during a panel at PAX Unplugged, and were shortly after shared widely on the official D&D social media outlets.

However, a few hours later, all those images were removed from WotC's social media, and were later replaced by images without the release dates.

Additionally, the '2024 Core Rules' image was replaced with a caption saying '2024 Player's Handbook'.

It's not clear why they were removed, whether those release dates are incorrect, or if they simply weren't supposed to be shared yet. But since we shared those images too, we should note that it's possible the dates we shared might not be set in stone. More info if and when we have it!

The expectation of perfection by a notable subset of people, and their inability to forgive when perfection is (inevitably) not achieved are among the greatest drivers of conflict, not just today, but in all times.
I'm not sure anyone cared about that outside of democratic institutions.

When you're a serf knee-deep in cow manure, I don't think you really care whether the baron is infallible or merely well armed.

Why not? It ties into their digital offering that has ovet 13 million users, so they can get to people faster than print can. As soon as the rules text is finalized, they can push the free version easily now
The SRD isn't for users. It is for companies. If WotC wanted 3PP support for the 2024 launch, they would put out the SRD months in advance.

No, the main use of the SRD, numerically, is the basis of what users get when they sign up for free at D&D Beyond. All users get the SRD and all the options in it, PC stuff, Monsters, etc.

And they are going to switch that over at some point, sooner rather than later.

And in terms of 3PP support, the current SRD suffices for making material compatible with '24, at any rate.

I haven't kept up with ODND, so:

Do we know there will be a SRD or Basic Rules for ODND? Or is that an assumption?

If we know, was it via video, audio, or text?
