As announced in the Livestream from PAX Unplugged:
 
* Wild Life - Release: Soon Critter book for SR6, over 50 illustrations, organized by habitat. There will be a card deck that goes along with it!
* Shadowrun 1st Edition reprint - Hardcover and PDF! Zero changes, if there was a typo, the typo stays!
* The Needle's Eye - Europe Setting book; Information on Paris, Prague, London, and Lisbon
* Final Bets - Europe Campaign book; campaign missions and adventures set mostly in Paris
* Smooth Operations - Possibly Summer 2024 Face Core Rulebook; Spells, powers, and gear; Complete chapter on how to manipulate people (organized by the seven deadly sins)
* Tarnished Star - Information on the status of Lone Star and other Security factions
* Arcane Spell Scroll - Images on a physical scroll illustrated by Echo Chernik that will tie into an AR interface so when you scan the image, it will show the spell attached to the image
* 35th Anniversary Art Book
* Shadowrun Minis Game - Sprawl Gangers! (but maybe not titled Sprawl Gangers); Designed by the Gangs of the Underworld developers!
* Follow-up to Scotophobia in about a year.

Ajax:
Id really like to see an SR6 rules version of SR1. All the old school fluff, all the old school mysteries before the metaplot advancement, good old school wired Matrix 1.0

Michael Chandra:
Looking forward to The Needle's Eye, so I can either write or GM a European campaign. Combined with Assassins Night and the German material, I can write stuff involving 6 countries there.

Beta:
That is a pretty good selection of books :)  I'm looking forward to most of them. 

For sure I'm eager for up to date info on a few European locations, and I'm cautiously optimistic on the campaign book, given the general improvement book-to-book on 6e campaigns so far (I just hope it doesn't re-tread too much of what is already published in French).  I might have prefered a more general European update with more depth in certain areas rather than just focusing on certain cities, but I'll take it anyway

I really enjoyed Cutting Aces for 5e, except for the detail that a lot of information about cons focused on traditional cons that are all about getting money out of people, which is usually not what shadow runners are doing.  Here's hoping that Smooth Operations will focus a bit more on social manipulations more directly useful to characters and the GM.

Tarnished Star is likewise a long needed update.  Maybe not a 'buy it when it comes' one for me, but likely a 'pick it up when the pdf goes on sale.'

I'm not currently playing 6e, so don't have a use for the critter book, but I do like the number of illustrations they are promising.  Maybe I'll just get the card deck?

I'm not quite sure of the point of the Arcane Spell Scroll, but it sounds cool.  I'll wait until I understand it more.

And knowing the rough timeline for the follow up to Scotophobia is pretty key for me as a GM.  Helps me tailor my campaign a bit better (and for sure that will be a pick it up immediately one).

Heck, I might get the pdf of SR1 just for nostalgia's sake ( I'm sure what they are hoping for).

So that sounds like a pretty high hit rate for me :)

Falling Point was announced prior to PAX (I think it may even be in one of the books' JackPoint screens). I don't know if not mentioning it was an oversight, but I can't seem to find anything about it, now, either.
