Wizards of the Coast announced at the GenCon New Product Seminar that Dragonlance will not be the 2012 D&D campaign setting. While the setting has not been announced yet, it sounds like it may be a new setting, as well as a new way to play.

All I know is I’ve been drowned twice, stricken with a deadly disease, and sunk. Mark my words, Sturm Brightblade – boats are bad luck to us. We’ve had nothing but trouble since we set foot in that blasted boat on Crystalmir Lake. That was where the crazed magician first saw the constellations had disappeared, and our luck’s gone downhill from there. As long as we keep relying on boats, it’s going to go from bad to worse.— Flint Fireforge, Dragons of Winter Night
