The split between fans of Pathfinder/D&D 3.5 and Dungeons & Dragons 4E, combined with the rehiring of d20/D&D 3.0 developer Monte Cook, have caused many fans to speculate about an upcoming 5th edition of D&D. Is there any truth to this?
Yes. The New York Times revealed on January 9, 2012 that a 5th edition of D&D was in the works for a release at Gen Con 2013. Mike Mearls confirmed it shortly thereafter. An open playtest for the game began on May 25, 2012.
