During the D&D Celebration 2021, held on September 27, it was announced that in the 2024, on the occasion of the celebrations for the 50 years from Dungeons and Dragons, one will be launched “new version” by D&D.
Attention: this is not a sixth edition, but more than one update of the rules of the current Fifth Edition. Ray Winninger, Liz Schuh, Chris Perkins, and Jeremy Crawford, who gave the conference on the future of D&D, have ensured that all the material that will be produced will be fully compatible with the Fifth Edition rules and manuals.
A new version of Dungeons and Dragons is coming in 2024
In short, the team behind D&D is preparing to celebrate a very important birthday and they do so by announcing that they want to further improve the Fifth Edition; hence the choice to make a new (semi) edition. Winninger said that the new rule set, in addition to being compatible with all manuals published for Fifth Edition, will also be based on the feedback provided by the 5E community to further refine the game.
No other information has been revealed about this new “edition” of Dungeons and Dragons other than the fact that the digital component will have greater weight and further news will be revealed starting next year. In short, we look forward to new developments!
In addition, during the event, a new manual was announced whose release is scheduled for 2022, that is Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse. It is a volume that will contain 30 playable races And 250 monsters. In Monsters of the Multiverse we will find some interesting news (a pre-announcement of the changes of 2024?), In particular in relation to NPCs and the casting of Spells so that they are easier and more immediate for the GM.
During the D&D Celebration it was also confirmed that others will be released in the course of 2022 two “classic” settings by D&D and another one will be released in 2023 (there are still no spoilers about it!).
