Shadowrun 6e ETA?
 
When can we expect to see Shadowrun for HLO?

I believe they have stated it won’t likely until early next year.

That's disappointing...do they have a history of betas for testing? Right now, on the Shadowrun forums, they have some pretty legit Excel Spreadsheets for character generation...feel like if a single person could do an Excel spreadsheet in first week of rule books release that calculated stats and qualities, that a team who specializes in chargen tools would be able to, I don't know, pop out a MVP relatively quick.

I have used HLO for both Pathfinder and Starfinder and its been very disappointing. Shadowrun is a far more complicated system with many more options. As it is, it takes twice as long to make a Pathfinder character online vs classic and the Shadowrun system is only going to compound this problem.

Edit: I forgot to make my point, which is, don't wait for HLO to release SR 6th, find another option.

Hmm, community has been passing around an Excel that calculates all the crunchy bits. I could flesh it out with some Macros to make it auto-populate gear on the main sheet print out...

If Lone Wolf doesn't get it's .... drek together, an alternative, probably free, will take it's place from the community. Which is no skin off our hoop, but sad to see a developer who was once known for making an excellent tool that made getting in the game an easier/better experience falter in such a way.

Correction: I believe that LW responded to a pos5 on FB suggesting that the time frame for release in Oct/Nov

Hi folks! Yes, we expect Shadowrun 6 to be out around October / November. Thanks!

It's been a couple months since this reply and there hasn't been any updates on a newsletter. Can we still count on SR6 coming to HLO this month?

The last LWD message in this thread was from before all the layoffs occurred, so maybe it is delayed.

Yet another new game system to support, but still no Campaign Theater? No starship tools for SF? No player-to-player interaction? Really??
