Since there's not much to really discuss outside of speculation I figured I'd just chime in with some positive feedback for V3. I think its a good move by FFG and I look forward to seeing what its all about. That's not to say that I can't appreciate the hurt feelings and misgivings of the other folks, edition changes can be rough. I'm not an old Warhammer player though so I have no previous vested interest really (though I did buy into a number of V2 books and sell them off without playing).
I think its probably a good move by FFG though as I assume that core books and rules bring in a pretty significant profit as compared to supplements. But beyond that, I always look forward to seeing any sort of innovation in gaming. Not that its all good for me but it's certainly worth exploring other avenues in order to reach more people or even to just simply introduce new fun ideas to the same old people. I don't do much roleplaying any more but who knows, maybe this new edition will have a certain X factor that will make it easier to put on the table for new players. I'd love to see that.
So, I'm looking forward to it and FFG may get a sale from me with a new edition whereas I'm certain I wouldn't have bought in regardless of what supplementals they may have released for v2. That's what I think new versions of RPGs should do, invite new folks in and make attempts at cleaning up the previous version for oldtimers who may be interested. And that plays to everyone's favor as the old stuff will keep getting played by those that prefer it. So it has been for decades in the RPG "business".
Count me as excited to take a look at this new presentation of WFRP!
