    When Eagle Pursuit says we are in terra incognita. My prediction skills what is going to happen are nonexistent at this point.
    Lots of activity. Please, let Firaxis please drop the bomb within 3 weeks or so. With a packed 10 minute video from Anton or Ed explaining the key parts.

    If there is more than one depot, doesnt that suggest there would be smaller DLCs incoming instead of a full expansion?^^

    I'm not sure what to think atm, but if we see a third DLC I'll be again strongly inclined towards smaller DLC.

    So, Ed Beach is familiar with the Pandemic board game. That's not surprising, but here you go:

    The Boston Marathon is now scheduled for September 14th. I don't know if that effects future expansions but it would give Ed more time right now to work on them.

    Well, we obviously aren't dealing with one single thing anymore.

    Options:
    2 standard DLCs
    2 mini Expansions
    1 expansion and 1 DLC of indeterminate size

    It still doesn't tell us there isn't a single large expansion coming. A second DLC could still be something like:

    - A pre-order bonus, packaged separately like the Aztec Civ;
    - Game's Soundtrack or other digital extras like Art, etc;
    - An Advanced Map Maker, which requires subscription to a Free DLC for it to download?

    We expected them to break the custom with third expansion and they were planning 3rd and 4th one at once this whole time!
    Such efficiency, many production, too busy.

    I'm putting a jar of honey and a can of gasoline (valid trade-items when this comes out) on a Free DLC (like the Cat Scout) and a paid DLC/Expansion for the second Depot.
    I like AntSou's suggestion of Worldbuilder as DLC, because that could be huge in size in final version, and not everybody would like to make maps.
    Can only hope for a bug-fix patch, a small free DLC with some extra stuff, and a huge DLC with complete modtools, worldbuilder, DLL, etc.

    Moderator Action: Again, please do NOT use the word confirmed unless Firaxis puts something out and, in fact, it confirms something associated with Civ6. Many people breeze in to see what has changed, see that and then go looking for what is confirmed. They will never find it because it was a joke. It is not funny to those that go looking. So please STOP using it.

    Codename Plaid reminds me of plaid-wearing Boudicca like in Civ 5. :) (I know it wasnt historical..)

    "Plaid" sounds like "plague." I'm not one to overreact to the names they give these things but it's what popped into my head.

    FXS gone to plaid?


    Does that mean that they switched into ludicrous development speed?? In such case the word 'soon' (tm) may be just around the corner :)

    See? That was my first thought. They expected speculation to go plaid.

    Here in Washington State they just ordered all restaurants and bars closed "for the duration". That should remove a lot of distractions from the workforce and make game development even faster, shouldn't it?

    I'm actually thinking we can contact the CDC/DHS/state and local reps about this. We are in lock down with coronavirus and its irresponsible, nay, IMMORAL, for Firaxis to not release content at a time when we need it more than ever. This is a matter of national security! Riots in the streets, toilet paper hoarding, and hand sanitize raids can all be avoided if we are all kept happy and contented with new Civ 6 content and I don't know why Firaxis is acting in such an inhumane manner with no new information. We're already starting a change.org petition to get this addressed, please join me in applying pressure here. Its our job to encourage folks to adopt safety protocols from the CDC, especially social distancing....and that means more Civ 6!
