4th Edition D&D delayed until June 6 2008
Finally, I wanted to share this last bit of exciting news with everyone. After conferring with our various trade partners, the Sales Team here at Wizards came back with word that they'd rather have the three core rulebooks release in the same month than over three consecutive months. As that's how we originally wanted to release them, Brand and R&D got together with our Production Team to see if we could accommodate the request.
The answer is YES! The new release schedule looks like this:
April: D&D Miniatures Game Starter and Dungeons of Dread boosters.
May: H1: Keep on the Shadowfell 4th Edition D&D adventure with Quick-Start Rules.
June 6: 4th Edition Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, and Monster Manual.
We delay the original release date of the first book by a couple of weeks, but we put all three books on the shelves at the same time. Many of you asked us to do this, and I'm glad to report that we can make it happen. All the core rules will be available at the same time!
