No official announcement, but they have commented in other threads saying it's happening. See here: http://boardgamegeek.com/article/23634450#23634450

I think that they should deliver their other Kickstarters before they start a new project.

That is exactly our policy: we won't launch a new Kickstarter till those projects have shipped:
- Orc Must Die
- Dicenstein
- Cthulhu Wars Onslaught 2
- Cthulhu for Pathfinder

Nice to hear. This is one of the things that kept my $ away from Glorantha: The Gods War. Not because I was worried about quality or game play certainly, but having GtGW launch so soon after CW:O2 was just financially too much for me.

I think this is what hit Glorantha the hardest (that and Chaos...). The Glorantha KS was up while the Cthulhu Wars late pledge manager was still open cannibalizing sales.

More specifically I think it was that the pledge manager for OS2 closed during the campaign. For those who had waited until that point to add stuff and/or pay their shipping that was already a big drain on the wallet.

Also, the unofficial announcement of OS3 during the GW campaign was ill timed too.

All of this yes, to confirm what Pit already said,

We are not planning on launching any KS projects until we've shipped everything outstanding (except for The Gods War, which may not have shipped yet).

Additionally, our new method, under new leadership (Sandy less as president, and more as just lead designer), is that we won't Kickstart a game until it is virtually ready to go to print. I.e., if we could theoretically send the resin masters (if there are minis), and the ready-for-print master files to China that day, then we will launch the KS. At least this is the goal - there may be odds and ends not complete, but should be things we can finalize during the KS.

This is clearly how many other solid KS creators do things (CMON; Stegmaier, etc.), and we have missed the mark with this nearly every time, always for frustratingly different reasons.

But no longer! There have been recent massive changes inside PG, and we are set up to do the above, finally. Of course, don't take my word for it - see for yourselves through the next year as we wait to launch after delivery of our currently outstanding projects, and then launch a new one or two with no mock-up art work, and finalized 3D models.

I wrote the first-ever Lovecraft game.

Planet Apocalypse (my next big design) is in the "fine-tuning" stage. Onslaught three still has a lot of design work ahead of it.

I tweeted when we did the first test of Shaggai (the new map for Onslaught Three), so a teensy bit of info is already released.

Also there is a tiny "secret" teaser for Onslaught Three contained within the Onslaught Two materials.

Argh...does putting out maddeningly tantalizing teasers run in Petersen blood? Dealing with these teasers from Arthur is tough enough!


Planet Apocalypse...Shaggai...an easter egg in the OS2...can't wait for more info!

That'd definitely be neat, but I think they mean the secret text on top of the Hound card. Pretty awesome stuff!

There's artifacting on the image that makes out letters. If you blow it up and enhance the brightness, you get this:

Wow........that is the strangest coincidence. Obviously, Peter was making a nice joke (see below for the image of the new actual Hound card, with what Link was talking about - if you can't see the spoiler here, then I don't know what to tell you surprise ).

But, what Peter showed DOES have a connection to CW O3.......and that's all I can say for now ninja zombie
