We have heard rumors that softcover rulebooks for both the End Times and the Shield of Baal are coming, but this rumored bit takes it one step further.
Please remember that this is a rumor. Could this mean that we will see all hardcover books become done in limited quantities? or will this just become in addition to the Hardcover releases with softcover books coming months later and being direct only?

I have two informations for you:
-Shields of Baal: Leviathan (and all later releases Expansions for 40k) will return in Softcover.
-Armybooks, Codices and Supplements will all come sometime next year in Softcover Versions with a lower price.
