Plans for 2017 & Some Clarifications

A news and planning post to start off the new year. Hopefully this will clarify up some of the matters which have been surfacing around since the start of 2017.

Where is DH6?

The first question that everyone would have on their minds would be…when is the next installation of DH coming out?

No known official announcements have been made as of now and the closest we get is a quick search on Google.

An entry showed that DH6 has been (un)officially announced from a secondary source, DN Reviews, bringing to us the hopes (and concerns) of the launch of the next installation of DH. Relayed in GL’s March presentation, the game is set for release in the 4th Quarter of 2017.

Bright color palette and humongous monsters, I guess this is going to be the less gritty future of DH6  (Credit: DN Reviews – GL’s presentation)

Not surprisingly, this ties in with what the community have been predicting so far, that the active lifespan (ie duration between each installation) of the game app would last for approximately 2 years thereabout. This surpasses its immediate predecessors of DH3 (<2 years, Dec 2011 – Apr 2013) and DH4 (~1 year, Apr 2013 – Mar 2014).

DH6 Announcement

However, upon clarifying with the devs, this piece of juicy news lacks authenticity since the mid-year takeover from Vivendi has changed the direction of the DH title. Essentially this means that DH5 is going to be staying around for a while.

While I’m unaware of the content that is being developed past the Adamant Alliance series of updates, which are to conclude sometime in March 2017. It would be interesting to see what new changes they will bring beyond that period.

The good news would be that they might be releasing their plans for 2017 in a while, so let’s await for that. 🙂

TL;DR: No DH6 development plans as of yet, DH5 will still continue.

Plans for the New Year

As for me, let’s just say I’ll keep up with whatever changes they’ll implement and follow upon whatever new features DH6 has to offer. Of course, due to work commitments, this would be only done if time permits.

Certain posts will also be updated to make relevant to the current changes in the game. These are inclusive, of but not limited to:

Also expect new posts such as:

  • Skills Catalogue (with specific posts for each element)
  • GW WP Calculator
  • Nightmare Pit
  • Forbidden Courtyard
  • …and more when I can think of them

On the other hand, I’ll be dwindling down on forum postings and occasionally drop by to catch up on official change logs and get feedback for the devs.

TL;DR: Got to update some of my outdated posts and add new ones in too!

Okay, that’s about it. If you have a specific topic you want me to talk about, do let me know. In the meantime, hope you’ll enjoy the rest of DH5 and Happy New Year!
