How about a street date for Chrome Flesh?
If Tom Brady’s a Spike Baby, what does that make Brees and Rodgers?

Nothing official yet, but if we look at Data Trails for reference, probably about a month or so after GenCon...so late Aug / early Sept?

Hoi, chummers! First, I just want to thank you guys (Crimsondude and AJCarrington) for being a constant supply of awesome information. My query is thus: as soon as Data Trails came out in pdf there were rumblings of a technomancer-specific add-on or book coming down the pipe. I know its too early to ask for details, but is there a title for which I can keep my eyes peeled?

Not something that I've got anything official on, but will see what I can dig up.

The author's still doing research I believe, so writing's a bit off, and release will be a bit after that. I'd say that it won't happen in the next three months, but could be possible by year's end? This is just speculative, but at least you won't be thinking it'll drop, like, at GenCOn or the like.

To support up the comments above, confirmed with Jason that this IS a product under development, but too early to talk about timelines and such.

Hi! I haven't introduced myself, but I'm Amy Veeres, a freelancer with Catalyst. I've written some stuff for Chrome Flesh and a new book in the 10 ______s series, but this thread is about something you'll see from me either late this year or early next, a book entirely about Technomancers!

This is from the post, http://forums.shadowruntabletop.com/index.php?topic=20871.0

Reposting this from the Shadowrun tumblr, because AJCarrington shouldn't get to have all the fun.

Last night, Jason posted an outline of the Shadowrun tabletop RPG books planned through the end of 2017 for the freelancers to see, and that the list is AH-MAH-ZING.

And this is just supplements/sourcebooks; it doesn’t include the e-books and novels. What I know of that is slightly more than you do (Names of a few titles), but … Y’all, I’m stoked.

I started looking for news on that. ::) Then I realised; "for the freelancers to see" ... is that a new thing for you guys?

No.

We get some sort of outline every year before Gen Con and the freelancer summit. However, it can and does change over time for various reasons. That said, I'm excited for a couple of reasons: (1) Personally, I haven't had the opportunity to write anything since 2012, but now I have time and other circumstances that afford me this opportunity, and (2) the last two years have been focused on releasing the Fifth Edition core expansion books, but now we're into the meat of the 5th Edition era as a setting with the rules in place or imminently in place. The only core expansion books left are the rigger and technomancer handbooks, but now we're going to focus on sourcebooks like the corporate handbook, the Seattle box set, and other products that build on the full rulesets and existing sourcebooks. And while I have to be vague, I'm rather excited about the plots and ideas that Shadowrun will be focusing on in those future books.

I definitely shouldn't mention this lest I stir up wild speculation, but one of the things I have been able to do besides run the tumblr is that I recently updated the Shadowrun wikia's list of AA-rated megacorporations because there is a plot sparked in Bloody Business (Earlier, actually, but it really gets going in BB) where that list will become relevant.

I hope that can be parsed that you're going to focus on sourcebooks as rigger and technomancer are on their way already, rather than that they are being put on hold whilst sourcebooks are worked on, which would be a major disappointment to many.
