Not much is known about this & it's still a couple months away but I think it's safe to assume we'll see next years expansion announced here. With ShB having now concluded & 5.4 out in 10 days there should be only be two major MSQ patches left between that & 6.0 as well. I was still early into SB at this point in time pre-ShB so it's going to be quite exciting getting to experience the run up to a new expansion as it happens this time around :D


My release estimates:
5.5 - 6th April [Edit: Confirmed for 13th April]
5.56 - 22nd June
6.0 - 24th September


Let's see how close I am lol.


6.0 may be called Forspoken.

So I must get back into the game in the New Year to get up to date before this announcement then :D

Unsurprisingly given my track history, this has not happened :lol:

I'm holding off on coming back until I'm more settled at work, since I don't want to just be grinding through story without enjoying it. But it will definitely be SOON(TM). As soon as I feel up to it in fact!

No worries mate, save it until you can relax & enjoy it properly :thumb:
You still planning to watch the announcement stream either way? Or just if you've returned by then? :)

Yep, I'll definitely watch. I hope there won't be huge spoilers or anything, might dip out if that starts to happen, but definitely going to watch regardless :D

Awesome, will look forward to watching it with you in that case! :)

Hard to know how much they're likely to show at this given timeframes & schedules have shifted somewhat. Under normal circumstances the EU FanFest would have been this Feb, with the NA and JP ones before it in Nov & Dec where 6.0 would have already been announced. We're a few months out of sync though so maybe we'll just get the reveal trailer and some light info (with another stream later in the year) rather than an info blowout. Exciting either way :D

We now have a time & date for the May FanFest Keynote & it’s only 3 weeks away!

FRI 14TH MAY
6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. (PDT]
(which is 2am - 4am of Sat 15th for the UK)


Another late one but the previous one was really great & definitely worth staying up for so I’m sure this one will be too. Pre-order info announced here too do we reckon? Hopefully a nice CE!

Can’t wait 😁

Admittedly, this is probably one of the best game trailers I can recall - up there with the original Shadowbringers one.

Did we all get our CE's? :lol:

Trailer was sooo good! I''ve watched it a few times now & gets me re-hyped every time haha.

I think I've got a CE. It's still marked as pending on my orders page rather than pre-order and I'm still waiting on the confirmation e-mail but I managed to get the order in well before it was marked as sold out so unless they've oversold, I should be good I think. Fingers crossed!

Pre-ordered one of these beauties too:

I saw that guitar and immediately thought of you, not going to lie :lol:

I hadn't noticed the small print saying pre-orders for the guitar outside of Japan aren't actually being taken until late this year so... just need to not eat for the rest of the year lol.

Also I was a ways off with my release estimate haha. Really thought it would be Sep, maybe Oct. Not Nov. Considering 5.55 (25th May - 1 week from now) is the final MSQ update we'll get until 6.0 that's quite some wait for more lol. I've no doubt it'll be worth the wait though! :D
