This morning Shadowcasters Network broke the news that there will be a new edition of Shadowrun.
Update: Catalyst Game Labs will be posting a full announcement at 10am PST at shadowruntabletop.com.
This video is an hour long, but the breaking news is in the first few seconds, after the loud opening.
Is this news confirmed? A short while ago EN World posted and then deleted a forum update called Shadowrun 6th Edition Announced. There is nothing on Topps (the trademark owners), Catalyst Game Labs or the Shadowrun Tabletop websites.
It is likely that official news will come from Catalyst Game Labs shortly. Geek Native has tried to contact them for more information and will update (or follow up) this post as required.
It is Shadowrun’s 30th anniversary this year. In April limited editions of Shadowrun 5th edition were made available for purchase. In February, a Bundle of Holding was offered with various 5th edition titles.
While EN World has removed their post, the summary of it is still available in social media. It points to a new edition being available this summer, in time for the official 30th anniversary, a brand new Beginner’s Box and a new novel.
