The ever-expanding Dungeons and Dragons book collection is getting a new addition in August.
As reported by ComicBook.com, Amazon posted a placeholder listing for a new Dungeons and Dragons book that will be released on August 16th. The listing doesn’t indicate the title and description of the book, but those details and other information are expected to be revealed at the first-ever D&D Direct, which is happening on Thursday, April 21st. Announced this past weekend, D&D Direct is described as the event that will give fans their “first peek at the future of Dungeons and Dragons.”
The August release date for the new book is a little uncommon, as it doesn’t conform with the traditional schedule of Dungeons and Dragons releases, which usually starts in the month of September. For instance, in 2021, publisher Wizards of the Coast released three Dungeons and Dragons books in the final months of the year: The Wild Beyond the Witchlight in September, Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons in October, and Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos in November.
Upcoming Dungeons and Dragons books
Ahead of the August release of the untitled Dungeons and Dragons book, Wizards of the Coast will be releasing two Dungeons and Dragons books later this spring: the Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the Multiverse, which will be released in May, and the Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel, coming out in June.
Additionally, Wizards of the Coast is expected to release at least three more Dungeons and Dragons books this year. One of those is a traditional full-length adventure book, while the other two are campaign-setting books. Details about these books are scarce, but based on playtests released by Wizards of the Coast over the past few months, the two campaign-setting books will focus on Spelljammer and Dragonlance.
