My prediction (which will come false... is that the opposite of "come true") first is: Toady will have a change of heart and decide that incremental development with a strategy of "release early and release often" is the best way to go after all.  There will be no big wait.

And if that comes true, I expect some serious kudos.

Sorry for abandoning the thread, everyone! Had some IRL stuff so I didn't visit the forums for some time. Updated the OP now, though.

To be specific, September 15th, 2022 is my new prediction. You can update accordingly.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

My guess, assuming the coming release will be around February/March;

December 10th, 2022.

I suspect it'll probably be around July 23rd 2021

I mean he's already shown off prototypes of the myth generator, we can't assume he just hasn't even started on it yet,

Well yes, the part about linking the myth generator itself up with worldgen so that creation myths appear in legends mode should be fairly straightforward. But then there's the incredibly complex matter of making the postgen world consistent with the myths that would be generated in a way that matters in gameplay terms, right down to history, creatures, landscapes, belief systems, magic etc. (and keep in mind, the myths will be completely different with every worldgen).

So yeah, all that'll take a while, but the finished result should be worth the wait.

OP: I think the idea is to order the list chronologically.

Now that we're past the 6 month mark for the villains release I think I should modify my prediction a little. I'll say Big Wait begins in October 2019 (Ooh, a new game!) and won't be that much Bigger than previous Waits. Bearing in mind travel and end of  year disruption, Myth release for January 15th 2022.
