Given the announcement of 6E, it's time to ask the obvious question.  Will Neo-Tokyo stay 5E until it concludes in 2021, or will there be a conversion to 6E?

I would imagine season 11 and on will be 6E, since that'll be the current edition by that point.

The FAQ still covers converting 4E SRM characters to 5E, so I can't imagine there won't be something similar to update 5E Neo-Tokyo runners.

the current season (10) that debuts at Origins will stay 5E, but we are still discussing what future seasons will end up being

I suspect there will be a character and edition conversion at some point before 2020 Origins.

Makes sense, there's a lot of moving parts to look at. We appreciate the insight!

...what will happen to characters who have qualities, skills, augmentations, powers, etc from later expansions that may not be available for months or years again?

I am wondering about this myself. I ran six missions last Gencon and banked the karma for an Ally Spirit. I would finish it this Gencon but I would like to know if it would be undone by a conversion to 6th before events registration for Gencon this Sunday. Kinda Important.

There is no way that the upcoming missions this GenCon are going to be converted to 6th edition. The rules aren't going to be fully available until THAT weekend.

I would guess, that the soonest we are looking at would be for season 11 to be 6th edition.

For the record, my vote is against trying to convert mid-locale. Just like with the move from 4th to 5th, the conversion should be a full reset...

Those of us with complicated characters are not going to want to retrofit their particulars.
