DnD Product Delays

WizardsLogo 150x150 DnD Product DelaysOh no! There are rumors floating about that many of the Dungeons and Dragons products that were scheduled to be released in the next six months have all been delayed significantly. In general, it looks like all of the products below have been delayed at least 2-3 months. The list includes:

  • Heroes of Sword and Spell (more Essentials build options, feats, races, and items)
  • Heroes of Shadow (introduction of the Shadow Power Source, as well as additional options including Assassins, Hexblades, Necromancers, and Lots of Others Goodies)
  • Shadowfell: Gloomwrought and Beyond (Shadowfell information)
  • Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale (new and classic D&D monsters)
  • Mordenkainen’s Magnificent Emporium (tons of magic items with the new rarity paradigm)

New approximate release dates:

  • Heroes of Sword and Spell: Late Spring
  • Heroes of Shadow: Early Summer
  • Shadowfell: Gloomwrought and Beyond: Mid Summer
  • Monster Vault: Threats to the Nentir Vale: Late Summer
  • Mordenkainen’s Magnificent Emporium: Unknown icon sad DnD Product Delays

I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed hoping that these horrible delays are not true… but I have to admit it is not looking good. I checked Amazon a few minutes ago, and some of the products they used to have listed have now been unlisted, or the product status has been changed to “unavailable”.

From my day job, I know all too well that a delay in one product has an impact on all future products. Will something be dropped from the product line to maintain the schedule of other releases in queue, or will the whole Dungeons and Dragons release schedule be shifted back? Unfortunately, only time will tell. In the mean time, many of us will be waiting with baited breath for an official announcement from Wizards of the Coast.


So what’s the good word? Have you heard anything about these, or any other Dungeons and Dragons or Wizards of the Coast product delays? What the heck is going on over there?
