Second edition already? Has it even been a year since you released this?
I think I’ll skip it and wait for the 5th edition in June.
We do have plans for a July release (sorry, not June… 😉 ) but it won’t be a new revision of ESR. The Second Edition will be shipping almost exactly a year after the first, to your point – which is both funny and a fair one – we aren’t planning subsequent releases on any similar timeline. No “GW business model” for us.
ESR Second Edition was largely driven by some things we wanted to be able to include in the Campaign Guides which remain perfectly compatible with ESR’s Original Edition and other tabletop rules, but get some enhancements when used in conjunction with ESR Second Edition.
We’re also offering upgrade pricing for anyone who owns ESR Original Edition – because you’re right, in wargaming, one year is a pretty short timeline for a new release.
