Dave was out here in the land of Oz, back in January so his eyes might be blurry from all the smoke.
I'd say that they are just knuckling down and getting stuff ready for the release.
Just remember that China had its New Year celebrations only last month and are slowly winding back up into production, and with everything else going on over there it may be delaying information that they can share.
I am helping with testing on 2nd Edition. Here is some updates: Still doing testing and are working on the final draft of 2nd Edition. Working on a company to produce the new models. Working on the ideas for Kick-starter on how to present it and package it.
It all depends on finishing up the playtesting, final editing, send to publisher for book. Then finish the 3D models, test print, fix any little things, send to manufactorer and get them back. Finally set up the Kick-Starter.
If the publisher or manufactorer is reduced or shut down because of the virus then more delays.
