Curious to know if a fifth base set is in works—even though I'm having some difficulty imagining what it might be since so many bases are covered by the existing ones.

I'm REALLY hoping its Justice League Beyond. So much to work with and so little done with it.

There is another boxed set in the works, but can't say what it is yet.

Super excited... can't wait to see what's new this time around.

Speaking of future releases, is there anything you can say about a Crisis 4 expansion?

Looks like 2017 is the year of DCDB.

Can't say anything about anything. We will post previews when things get closer.

Sounds good to me. I have the utmost faith that...

Thanks so much, Matt, for answering even though you're not in a position to say much right now. I'm glad to know another boxed set is in the works.

I wonder if Crossover Pack 5 & 6 are being scraped together to make this new box set then, no news post about them since March on BGG. Feels a bit light this year for DC in general with just Crisis 3, but it was an amazing set.

Very glad to see this new box in the works. I was honestly thinking that the DC Deck Building Game had reached the end of its life cycle.

Crossover 5 & 6 are not being co-opted. Just a delay before they come out.

I'm really hoping for an "Injustice: Gods Among Us" base set. Even though there would be a lot of repeat characters, if they did it right the game could get very interesting.

I'm really hoping for an "Injustice: Gods Among Us" base set. Even though there would be a lot of repeat characters, if they did it right the game could get very interesting.

Could be cool but I would see it more as a Crossover Pack than full box set. There just aren't enough "Villains" for the Super-stack AND the normal main deck cards. I would also use the word "clone" instead of repeat as there is no major fundamental visual differences between the Injustice world and normal DC Universe making an Injustice main set most likely identical to the fist set (could we start calling that one Justice League already?, I hate having to just call it Set 1 or the first set). Additionally, a previously planned Batman Vs. Superman Rivals set was scrapped in part (I am assuming) due to the response of the consumers not wanting more Batman heavy themed sets (which Injustice definitely falls into).

I have a feeling if Crypto was going to do a "alt-reality" main deck it would be for Flashpoint (though again this would fit better as a Crossover). I love Injustice and the comics (and can't wait for Ground Zero this Winter) but I am not holding any reserves about it making its way to DCDBG.

Oooooo... Hadn't even thought of that. I'd be happier than happy if Injustice is the next set, even if it means no Justice League Beyond set.

I hope it would adapt pieces of the Street Fighter DBG since locations influence the gameplay of injustice in different ways.

Nice. Did you put that together?

The first set is usually called "vanilla" for most games with multiple expansions across most mediums.

Thanks. Yeah, I recreated high resolution copies of all the logos a while back, so it took me all of two minutes to change "Heroes Unite" to "Justice League" and change the text back to blue.

I kind of wish Justice League Dark could get something, but their cards are already pretty much released and spread all across the sets.

Crazy how long between releases. Really nothing coming out in quite some time

I would love to see Crisis versions of these Heroes.

Justice League Dark could defiantly use a little more love, but I doubt that they will be getting their own base set any time soon. I could see the CW universe getting their own full set as they have expanded so much since the Arrow pack, but again, I don't find that SUPER likely. It would be neat to get a set based on some newer material as well as really old material (A respect {Or remember} the past, embrace the future type deal) with Jessica Cruz and Lex Luthor among the heroes, and stuff like Ace the bat-hound, Captain Nazi and other such nonsense thrown in the mix. Something based on Kingdom come would be AMAZING, but that would probably fall under cross-over pack material, not a full set. Another base villain set could be possible (Oversized Darkseid anyone?), but again, that doesn't seem likely for the next big set. Really, other than elseworlds, I can't think of a single theme that could easily make a full set that they haven't already done. I guess it all hinges on how willing they are to re-use certain characters and themes that have been touched on already.

Just curious: Is part of the delay the new branding and Rebirth?

I asked about this at GenCon this year.

Many of the delays so far are on DC's part. Mostly because of artwork, but some other reasons.

I was also informed that the new base set will be Justice League themed, but different than the original set. When I asked if it was maybe something like Batman Beyond or other Elseworlds, he simply said "I've said too much."

I could definitely see sort of a reboot with main justice leaguers. There's no reason there can't be main Hero alternates. We've seen that with Starfire. Afterall, there are really only a handful or so of unrepresented characters with any sense of mainstream appeal. Crossover packs are great for things with lesser notoriety.

I would be fine with alt. versions of other characters, it would be the card content I would be concerned about. The first set was basically Justice League and a lot of the associated weapons, powers, allies and enemies were represented there. The concern would be getting a new set that contained duplicate (in name/similar) deck cards to what we already have. This was very present in Rivals: Batman vs. Joker. Any new box set needs to bring to the table new content than what we have seen in other box sets already. If I am getting more of the same cards I am not going to feel motivated to purchase it. Starfire wasn't a deal breaker since she was a promo for Heroes Unite (though potentially having 2 Crisis versions of her will be interesting if a Crisis 4 comes out).

Nothing wrong with a new Justice League set. I'd guessed that artwork—perhaps Rebirth-associated—might have something to do with the delay in new material.

Nothing new to report on a new base set other than we are working on one right now.
Not going to say what it is for a while.

I think it's only been a bit. I think we gotta wait a few more bits before its been a while.
