Shadowrun 6th Edition Release Schedule
 
Do we have a schedule of when we can expect the SR 6e source books to show up for purchase?

With the release of the PDF for street wyrd, I'm resurrecting this question lol

On the 15th Jan, LW (Mathias) stated the following:
"Other projects on our short list include:

Alien Archive 4 - we're working our way through it now and will release as quickly as possible, which looks like next month
Lost Omens Ancestry Guide - we've not yet received this book from Paizo and will do our best to have it available on the book's release date (February 24th)
Savage Worlds - updates have been submitted to us and are awaiting detailed review

Once we've got those completed, the plan is to move on to the backlog of adventure path issues, Shadowrun books, and assorted other bug fixes that have been reported."

That's the latest message I'm aware of. Based on "recent" statements, they won't give dates, or priorities.

Which I can understand. As frustrating as it is from our side, them giving any sort of dates can shoot them in the foot. Because you can't always promise there won't be delays and we players can get a little rabid if you promise us something and it doesn't happen.

Do those Shadowrun books include the remaining ones for the original HeroLab's Shadowrun 5e?

I understand that as well. I don't care so much about dates as a simple acknowledgement of we're still working on it. After all, it's been a few years since several of us have paid for material that is not yet completed and no word on it.

It's why I've held off on HLO. If there was at least some word on finishing up the older products, I'd look at HLO.

The quote was from an HLO forum thread, so its likely talking about HLO only.

So sad and upsetting. I don't know why or how LW keeps this contract. Adding insult, the March Newsletter even mentioned how the SR6 theme is now available to everyone as a Sci-Fi skin. Shoot me now.

It feels like they gave up on shadowrun online...

asvaldson June 12th, 2021 03:19 PM

I've started to look into alternate generators for now. I try to use HL for everything. but until they can get caught up, and maybe put us in the loop for various systems, I need something useable with the newer material

Starwatcher October 27th, 2021 04:29 PM

Going to expect that this is pointless to even bother asking, but here goes anyway. Is there any hope that we are going to actually get any of the books that were released in the last year, or frankly any of the books past the core book?

Davorious October 31st, 2021 09:18 AM

I am of a similar mindset. HL is an excellent program but without any updated material or the ability to manually add items, I too am looking for a new generator.

Would be nice if we received any information, even a tentative schedule for development.

Look for Genesis for character generation on Shadowrun 6e

KarmaInferno April 30th, 2022 12:23 PM

Reposted from the HL Classic board:

The character generator license for Shadowrun has been languishing in Lone Wolf's hands. Nothing has been done for 6th edition since the corebook, despite multiple books being published since then. The last comment we even have from anyone at Lone Wolf was from 2019, just saying they were "working on it."

Even for Shadowrun 5th Edition over on HeroLab Classic, at least two books were promised and quite a few folks paid for, yet have never been added.

Step up or step off. Either actually do the work promised and in some cases paid for, or let someone else take over the license. This is just embarrassing and unprofessional.

Perhaps directing this as the license issuers might get them to allocate it (if it is exclusive) to some other potential partner instead.
