Several books went to "on the boat" status at roughly the same time. While not confirmed directly from FFG, observation of how (so far) two have been released suggest that FFG is staggering their releases so as not to hit customers' wallets all at once. (If we include the price tag of this one, that would have been $190 SRP for the four sourcebooks and the anniversary edition all hitting at once.)

My personal guess for this one - given nostalgia factor for the game and the "past" setting of Solo - is releasing May 24. Meanwhile, someone in another thread has heard a release date of May 7.

What I have come to understand is the upcoming page is horribly inaccurate. Also they have been having some issues with their printer. All of this is out of FFGs hands. And they have looked into printing in the US. Problem is that is a lower quality print for more money. Which is not a good option.

This is from a conversation with someone fairly high up at FFG.

So they are debating internally how and when they should tell this to us? 

Why would they? Very few companies openly discuss internal hurdles and decisions of that kind publicly.

Example: At my job, a Mac OS update broke the functionality of one of our softwares that provides computer connectivity for our physical product. Given the quick pace of Mac OS updates, it took our software development team about a year and a half to resolve the issue. In that time, those of us in customer support could only say, via phone or email, “We’re aware of the issue. Our software team is working on a fix. Keep watching our web site for an update to be posted.”

Yeah,

In my case,  Amazon says 20-Aug-2018. So, it's looking really bad

EDIT: To be clear, today it says 20-Aug-2018 for my preorder, but yesterday was 23-Apr-2018 (or 21, considering the 2 day shipping)

Amazon is notoriously unreliable for release dates for FFG games RPGs not published by WotC or Paizo.  Do not believe any date projected by Amazon.

Fixed that for ya ;)

In all seriousness, Amazon release dates for any of the smaller publishers is speculation at best, and should be taken as such.  I think even Amazon has had release dates for major RPG companies like WotC and Paizo wrong before.

I would bet a cup of coffee this doesn't make it until GenCon. A YEAR is a really long time to wait for an RPG who's PDF's and hard copies of original are available now.

 

I have a small hunch FFG has run into some legal trouble with WEG on this and may be the limbo problem.

 

I cancelled my pre-order, because in either case, it's still BS.

I just looked for it on Amazon today and couldn't even find it.

I pre-ordered in August last year and have waited long enough. Canceling the order and just buying an original copy off of eBay  (or Amazon, for that matter.)

I just sent an email asking for an update on this, since it has been listed as "On The Boat" since 18 January. I'll post whatever answer I get as soon as I get it.

I sent an inquiry last week as well and got this response this morning:

Thanks for reaching out! I apologize for the delays in getting the books out. We ran into some production issues but hope to have the book out soon. Thank you for your support and patience!”

So it is still coming but we are none the wiser as to when

Well, at least we have a reason why it's been delayed.
