So, is this an official announcement?

Yes. "I'm pleased to officially announce that my next game..."

Ooh, hot damn! Even with a whole year to go (minimum, likely) this is exciting news. Looking forward to the journal already.

Happy Christmas to us all!

Hey now! I'm excited, man. :)

I must admit. The next TEW was going to be the first in the series where I was ready to state that if it's simply written on top of the previous one, and doesn't include some major changes and improvements - especially to UI - I wouldn't be sure if I was going to be buying.

Happy to read that this an ambitious project. And I don't mean that negatively - it's just that TEW 2016 has been serving me quite well, and the things I'm not happy with would probably require a brand new approach to things.

I remember reading a post from Adam where he stated that in the next TEW, he was looking to completely rework the way popularity works, and that has me excited. I do think "popularity" as it stands in TEW 2016 doesn't quite reflect the wrestling business.

I've fallen off the wagon as a wrestling fan since the release of the last game, but I always check out these forums daily in hopes for an announcement of the next TEW game. :)

Super hyped to hear this! Very excited to hear about the new engine, the old modmaking brain has suddenly whirred back into life now too which can only be dangerous! :p

This is me praying Rocky Golden’s back has gotten bigger to carry TCW

Speaking of mod making, question for Adam:

A year or so ago, I spilled coffee on my previous laptop and lost a bunch of my mod stuff for TEW 2016, and that effectively killed my motivation to do anything TEW related for the longest time. I recently got the itch to redo some of the mod work I had, but to get everything the way it was, it's going to take a long time, the better part of a year.

Does the new engine mean it's going to be pointless for me to do mod stuff for 2016 since it won't be functional with 2020? Or can either all or some of the stuff be converted from 2016 to 2020? I understand if this information you do not wish to reveal at this time, though.

Adam Ryland 12-08-2018 07:27 AM

It will have the usual converter included so that TEW2016 databases can be turned into TEW2020 compatible versions.

I was actually browsing the other day, and thought about suggesting something, but wasn't quite sure if another TEW would be coming anytime soon. So this is a very nice surprise.

One feature I'd like to see implemented would be an "episodic" feature. Maybe call it something else, I dunno. Anyways, lets say I run a four hour show on a Sunday. If I am running an episodic TV show that lasts half an hour, I can select segments/matches from that taping to air each episode. Something similar to how Lucha Underground operates, as well as DOJOPRO and even how NXT, ROH, and Impact tape.

TeemuFoundation 12-08-2018 07:28 AM

That is awesome. Thank you, Adam. :)

To MattyyOh: You seem to be new here, so don't take this as rude, but the way things work here is that all suggestions should be posted to:

Adam goes through every single thread in that sub-forum when considering features for a new TEW. If things are suggested at random in random places, they get lost in the shuffle. So, always use the Suggestions forum when brainstorming. :)

Bigpapa42 12-08-2018 09:04 AM

Well that is unexpected and rather awesome.

Markw 12-08-2018 09:08 AM

Awesome. Know a lot of the focus will be on features, but I'd love to see some time/resource invested into getting a consistent render/graphic style for the Cornellverse.

Leion 12-08-2018 09:55 AM

Already hyped!

Hashasheen 12-08-2018 10:04 AM

Oh wow, I figured you'd take a little while longer to do TEW again because of how much of an upgrade the 2016 version was from 2010 / 2013. I was fully expecting 2022 or something.
