[Update #2]: Fatshark has now released a lengthy developer update detailing their plans for the Winds of Magic expansion, as well as the future of Vermintide 2.

[Update]: Vermintide 2 is getting a fully-fledged 4v4 Versus mode!

Vermintide 2 studio Fatshark is currently working on the new Beastmen-focused Winds of Magic expansion, but it seems that might not be the only thing they're working on! According to the most recent press release, Fatshark will soon announce "something new" in the Vermintide 2 universe.

"The PC Gaming Show is the place to be for any developer, and we are more than happy to be part of the 2019 edition on June 10 in Los Angeles", Fatshark's CEO Martin Wahlund said. "During the show, Fatshark will announce something new in the Vermintide 2 universe, and we can’t wait to see the gamers reaction to the new content."

What exactly this announcement will be, nobody currently knows, but if I were to speculate, I would say it's one of three things: a brand new DLC for Vermintide 2 in order to bridge the current game with the Winds of Magic expansion, a massive new gameplay feature like a Versus Mode or a brand new character, or if you're willing to really go out on a limb, another attempt at a VR-focused Vermintide experience!

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once Fatshark announces some actual details. Until then, I'm afraid all we can really do is sit and wait for all of the announcements to start rolling in.
