It's always, always, always time for MMP to do that, and they even have a web page for it, don't they? http://www.multimanpublishing.com/News/tabid/82/Default.aspx

For the most part, they don't bother to update their own production schedule, as you can see for yourself -- last entry May 2019 -- what a joke.

This is an ongoing problem, but fans of MMP look the other way and hate that I keep bringing this up. One issue might be the puppet masters at Hasbro, because it would take about 5 minutes per week to keep that web page updated. But that can't be the whole story, because MMP publishes more than ASL; games and products not owned by Hasbro.

So, one must conclude they just aren't interested in keeping their customers informed regularly. Which is why GMT (and most everybody else) kicks their behinds in that department every single month.

For this lack of communication, I don't buy any of MMPs non-ASL products. They don't deserve my business on those other product lines.

MMP provides updates on Fakebook from time-to-time. You might check that out.

Thanks for this excellent answer to OP's question.

Sure. I have no release dates for you, but in general order of effort in the near term (after CdG and the WO Bonus Pack are out the door), we're looking at something like:
• ASLRB reprint
• Starter Kit Expansion Pack #2
• FKaC
reprint
• ASL Journal XIII
• Overlay Bundle


There are also a few new-ish items that we'll slot in where we see fit but I'm not able to detail those just yet. We have some more playtesting to do on the Normandy HASL, but I think it's close enough to say it's likely a 2020 release.

Longer-term: Ponyri has basically been finished-playtest-wise, according to Pete, so we'll figure out where it fits. The Italians (with the DTO stuff and Soldiers of the Negus) are the last core module update we've already started in on. The Manila HASL is coming up in this queue also.

Bob, the counters (which are always the tricky part) will likely print with another game in the next few months (we have to gang these together when we can) and counters take about 3 months to print; so I'd guess Ariete's about 5-6 months out.

Thanks! It is really too bad one of the mega billionaires is not a wargamer so they could act as an angel capitalist for you guys!

I think that you delivered 8 of 11 products in 2019 that were listed last year as to be produced.
