I doubt it, I would imagine that any serious rules balance in the line has come to an end, though. Dark Heresy seems like a clunky, old car compared to Only War, but considering that it's the best selling (and the fan-favorite) line, I'd imagine they'd keep it running for money's sake. Because of the premium prices they place on their books, it seems like it would be ridiculous to start a " 2nd ed." that outmodes all of the previous content and alienates those who paid that premium price to own those books. While writing an FAQ for all the books doesn't seem beyond them, the idea seems very unattractive, almost.
But honestly, I would prefer to have to convert things to an entirely new system than jury-rig a game using OW.
I'd appreciate a "Calixis Sector sourcebook" in the meantime, though.
"The union of art and action is death." -Yukio Mishima
Roleplaying games are the most tragic artform.
They represent the death of the folkloric tradition, the understanding that beuacracy touches our identity in ways that the individual can not seperate from themselves. That we can become abstracted into statistics so easily, yet we still demand to tell stories in light of this- because of this. The distinction between human and system has become seamless.
When we roleplay together, we mourn ourselves- how we can no longer communicate without a defined social system- be it race, gender, class, consumer, employer, Game Master, or player. We mourn our human synthesis with systems by employing them to tell stories. It helps us embrace our modern humanity like no other artform.
