I have just found a link in German boardgame forum unknowns.de linking to the following report about the toy fair in Nuremberg/Germany:

https://goo.gl/ALY1mH

As many others I was hoping for a new edition and am glad it's coming so soon!

EDIT 2 (29.08.2019): Here is a link to the new rules, obviously also showing the new artwork:
https://www.ravensburger.de/spielanleitungen/ecm/Spielanleit...

EDIT: As the thread contains many spam posts, here's a summary of some of the relevant information:

link to the press kit:
https://www.ravensburger-gruppe.de/content/wcm/mediadata/pdf...

- there it says on page 31: release beginning of 2019. In the picture of the first link it says available August 2019, though.

- all expansions to date and one new expansion included

- "aufwändige Neuausstattung" - definitely new/different components/layout, then.

- it also says "edlere Illustrationen" - so there will be new illustrations

- a digital version is coming, too: (maybe hinting at what a new edition might look like?)

That’s awesome! Can’t wait to see what they deluxify. If it offers a decent quality improvement I will definitely be replacing my existing copy. Thanks for the exciting news! And if you can translate any of the details they provided into English (if there are any) that would be appreciated.

Re: Castles of Burgundy Deluxe Edition announced
Another forum user has provided some more information of the press kit.
Most important points are:
- release: beginning of 2019
- all expansions to date and one new expansion included (it also says "10 Erweiterungen" which is "10 expansions" in the blurry picture linked above)

I hope it’s not just a reprint like Notre Dame or In The Year of Dragon for their 10 years anniversary...

Yeah, it's hard to tell if this is just a "complete" edition with new box art or if all the art and components have been changed and upgraded.

Well in the press kit mentioned above it says "aufwändige
Neuausstattung", which means there will be new components/layout.

Couldn't be more excited!

on the link you gave where does it say deluxe or upgraded/etc?
Quote:
JANUARY 30, 2019

In 2019, Alea, a subsidiary of Ravensburger, will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. It deviates completely from the common pattern in the game industry and reminds more of a book cover.

This is the new look in the Alea games.

In April, it will be the first time that only name, a very reduced illustration and - subtle - the brand name in gold on a solid background are all that should animate to buy (see picture right). It is the "new release" Las Vegas Royale , which is actually a reissue and as a "birthday present" the basic game Las Vegas and the expansion Las Vegas Boulevard summarized in a box.

All Alea games will come in the future in this highly reputable appearance on the market. In Nuremberg, the new look in patterns on the wall next to Las Vegas Royale was also seen in The Castles of Burgundy (new edition of The Castles of Burgundy ).
from my understanding of whats written there they are changing the look of their game boxes...

I guess it's TBD if the new components are "deluxe" of just "different"?

hmmmmmm the new cover looks v nice. Curious to see how this shakes out. I'm in the camp that's totally happy with it the way it is, but if this ends up looking reallll nice I might have to stock a second copy

Yes, I've changed the thread's title to be a bit more precise. But as I said, another user in the forum unknowns.de cited the press kit and there it says:

- release beginning of 2019
- all expansions and one new expansion included
- "aufwändige Neuausstattung" - definitely new/different components/layout, then. But it's not clear whether these will be "deluxe".
- it also says "edlere Illustrationen" - so there will be new illustrations

Dang...i may have to grab this..I love CoB but the artwork helps keep it off my table. It's not that it's bad, but we have older player who have a hard time distinguishing stuff.

New Illustrations along with all expansions just might be what i need to pull the trigger again. :)

I really just hope they add new category of tiles with another shade of green. The one thing this game lacked was enough shades of green.
