The newest version of Dungeons & Dungeons is set to be released in Summer 2014!

"When the new game is released this year (presumably at Gen-Con, a massive annual gaming convention in the Midwest), the creators hope to go back to a simplified core version of the game, with optional add-ons for those seeking a more complex play experience. In the past, in order to drive profits and improve the game experience as role-playing games evolve as a larger art-form, D&D has been through four substantial reboots. While some have been extremely profitable (with the basic mechanics driving the 3rd Edition continuing to comprise the world’s most popular role-playing system, in various forms), each has split their audience to a greater or lesser extent, with some players choosing not to upgrade.

Today, the designers at Wizards of the Coast are hopeful they can reunite the various factions among fans of the game. “Wizards has worked cohesively with fans, designers and partners to create the next generation of D&D,” said Nathan Stewart, Brand Director for Dungeons & Dragons. “We whole-heartedly thank all of the play test participants, whose feedback has proven instrumental in shaping the future of Dungeons & Dragons.”

According to Mearls, when the next edition is released in summer 2014, they are unlikely to call it a “5th Edition” or “D&D Next,” but prefer to make their unifying mission clear by simply calling the new version Dungeons & Dragons."
