A new edition next year is definitely about due. Of course our transition from 6th to 7th was rather rushed, and next year would make the time frame a little closer to the norm. What we have is a confirming month for the new edition of 40k. This was part of a conversation, and appears to be real at this point.
This comes from good sources, but like all rumors we will see how it turns out. A new edition with this and the following bits from Lady Atia, would make Chaos Players Worldwide go nuts.

Warhammer 40k turns 30 years old next year. The new edition is due. The clock will be taken from 5 minutes to midnight to 1 minute to midnight with the return of the Daemonprimarchs - or will they return alone? This is the theme of the new setting - think along the lines of 13th Black Crusade - but this time, it's serious. They want to get the same excitement as the community had during the End Times - without actually going as far as Age of Sigmar did.
Chaos fans - this is your hour. Stop beeing grudgy, there will be lots of love for all of you - renegades, former legions, daemon lovers.
The lore already start to unfold, with the Shield of Baal and Warzone Fenris - so we are already within the action. As usual, this is a bit of an early talk, so stay cool and take it with a tiny bit of salt.
