New D&D novels confirmed!

Not announced yet, but confirmed. They haven't been confirmed as new Forgotten Realms novels, just "D&D novels". But given that FR is the default setting for 5e, I'd be pretty surprised if none of the new novels in question is FR-based.

The info is buried near the end of the most recent "Fireside Chat" with Nathan Stewart. Here's the link:

At 1:06:27 he answers the question:

"Will there be any new D&D novels in the future?"

And the answer is very exciting indeed:

"Yes there will. However, I'm not going to spoil the details on that. But we are working, and hopefully we should have some announcements in Q1 of next year. And those announcements aren't going to be like, 'Oh my god, we got things like multi-years off in the future' and whatnot. Our approach is to try and get everything buttoned up and done and dialed in before we announce. There still might be a lag-time between announcements and, you know, getting new stuff and whatnot, but we have been working on that in the background, we do have plans, we do have some concrete plans that are in the works. So the answer is yes, but we can't really talk about it until early next year."

I am cautiously hopeful, but not sure how much I believe.

Sweet water and light laughter

Believe it when I see it.

WotC's latest statement about novels:

Relevant part: "On Forgotten Realms novels: They feel the novel business is very tricky, and they are a game company. They're not necessarily good at novels business. They don't have a good plan for novels, and they do not have a novel publishing expert on their team right now. It's not something they say they will never do again, it's just not their focus this year. They would consider a partnership, but they're not looking for it."
