Wizards of the Coast Announces Delay to ‘D&D: Dungeon Master’s Guide’

After making the dates on most of its long-planned rollout of the new edition of Dungeons and Dragons, Wizards of the Coast has announced that the last of the first range of releases will be delayed, as first reported by  Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeon Master’s Guide, originally planned for November release, will now ship in December.

The delay is blamed on “an entire additional cycle of design and editing to ensure that the books were as close to perfect as humanly possible” introduced with this new edition of the game.  While this effort is touted as a boon for the quality of the Player’s Handbook and Monster Manual, which are releasing on schedule, it has pushed the production schedule back on the Dungeon Master’s Guide.  For stores participating in WotC’s early release program, the book with have an on sale date of November 28th, with general release following on December 9th.
