According to http://www.asmodee-us.com there is a new edition of Formula Dé coming out next year.

edit: Unfortunately that's about all there is to the announcement. No details at all.

Cut and pasted from the above web page:

Be warned though, this offer is limited as this is our final reprint!
There will be no more tracks reprints or any new edition of the game!

So I guess that they are making a post final reprint edition? How annoying.

I had just read that a couple weeks ago too... It sounds like this will be a new version of the game (not just a reprint), but there are basically no details at all.

I have a few details that I can't share, but I can confirm that it is a new edition. As I get information (and permission to share), I'll pass it along.

They'd hinted at this on BGN.com a week or two ago in one of the ask the editor columns.

How can they not reprint any tracks?? I mean, there must at least be 'some' market for this if they reprint the original game... add to that all the owners of the original who need more tracks (like me).

I took a shot at emailing them about it, and got two very quick replies...

First:
"All I can tell you is too keep your self posted to our website. Everything will be posted on there as the date of its release draws closer."

Then ten minutes later:
"I was just informed that the old tracks will be compatible with this new board. And there will be new tracks coming as well. For the rest keep posted, in about a week or two we might have something new."

The base game and Mini, extra dice and pewter minis and 30 something tracks, and they want to re-do the game, but our "old" tracks will be compatible with the new "board"? The old tracks WERE the board, this annoys me. I would like to see new tracks, but a new different edition? I guess that the several hundred dollars worth of components isn't enough for this game. All this after re-releasing the base game only and stating that they would definately NOT re-release tracks.

This seems odd to me. Too fast. The reprint is only a few months old and they are bringing out a new version? I think the big question is what are they going to change?

It's been almost a year, and the reprint sold out completely in pre-order.

Every change will alienate X fans and create Y new ones, so I'm curious as to how well fans will accept the changes.

I've got the old (pre-reprint) version and enough tracks to keep me amused on the off chance I don't like the new one (although I suspect I'll like it).

My dillema is: do I put the original on my wishlist and/or try to buy a copy now before the reprint sells out, or do I hold off until the new game comes out...

I spoke to a rep last winter when they released the 2007 reprint. When I asked about reprints of the track maps he said it was an issue with the original art and moulds being lost or difficult to obtain. They apparently had a heck of a time getting all the assets for the base game reprint. Perhaps they recovered some of the board art, or perhaps they decided since they could not recover it, they would re-design the boards "look and feel"? This is of course, also just rumour and conjecture.

Well there are several copies of the "final" reprint at my FLGS.

A new edition doesn't make the old edition unplayable.

I laminated ten of each of the race sheets, and we use a dry erase marker to track damage during races - that way, we'll never run out of race sheets.

I emailed Asmodee today to see if they could shed anymore light on the press release in October, please see their response below:

As the statement says it will be a new Edition.
There will be new tracks.
As for the release day just stay posted to our website.
I am sorry I can't be of more help at the moment.
Sincerely,

With Formula 1 adding several new tracks in the next few years, I hope they keep up with them. Currently they don't have the track in Turkey or the new tracks for the 2008 season in Valencia and Singapore. 2009 will see Abu Dhabi added to the calendar and 2010 has Korea and India joining the Formula 1 circuits.
