The February releases named, but no visuals:

-Agents of the Human Sphere. RPG Characters Set
-Mukhtar, Active Response Unit (Boarding Shotgun)
-The Umbra (Repack)
-Intel Spec-Ops (Heavy Pistol, Sniper)

The minis in the Agent's box are all new sculpts. Finally a Mukhtar.

A light month. CB is cutting back on SKUs or Defiance is taking up a lot of production?

It’s hard to say cutting back on SKUs honestly when they’re releasing a blister of the Mukhtar which would be perfect for a box (ava4, 4 distinct weapon loadouts). Means there’ll most likely be more SKUs for that unit when there could just be one.

I like the Mukhtar's rules so I'm interested to see the model, but the shotgun would not be my weapon of choice. Hopefully other loadouts will follow soon.

What to expect in 2020:

https://www.infinitythegame.com/blog/item/772-what-can-we-expect-from-2020

N4
New 2 player battle box for N4 -- Pan-O vs Yu Jing
Code One
A new Infinity Graphic Novel
A new "light and fun" game (no word if infinity or different ip).

That light and fun game is probably another infinity boardgame to leverage all the other stuff they're producing for it. But it'll still be a good idea to branch out with something simpler to diversify the studio's properties.

Still not enthusiastic about the Code One and N4 split. But despite my complaints I am glad that they at least recognized the problem and are trying to rectify it. I still think it's a half step, like N3 was, that will ultimately hinder the game after initially helping.

Intro friendly Infinity with limited rules...or so the current group-think says.

I'm pretty sure when Code One was announced and in a BoW/OnTableTop video Carlos said Code One was simplified infinity the same as what the battle boxes rules are.

Code One will be a more simplified version of Infinity close to the format the battle boxes have in rules and troops selection, in addition it will be a fully playable and supported format that will have a smaller selection of the Infinity range available to it.

All of the above, only problem is, having Code One exist as "fully supported" may make the designers think they have free license to go to the extreme for the full version.

So, Code One AND a light and fun game?!?

Wouldn't the light game be Defiance?

I think they’d just say Defiance, seeing as the Kickstarter is finished.

Defiance is a squad-based board game using Aristeia dice. Only a few models will be supported. Defiance is completely different than Infinity in many ways and is basically PvE with a PvP option included because they can.

"Code One" is simplified rules but otherwise you're playing Infinity. Many models will be supported, but not all. You're basically playing Infinity, but some rules may be excluded and some profiles may be simplified along the likes of how the booklets in Coldfront/Redveil/Icestorm/etc have super-simplified profiles that omit a bunch of unnecessary stuff.

Infinity "N4" is the official 4thEdition. Everything will be supported.

Perhaps not Giraldez level, but more indicative of what an actual human is capable of, so I actually appreciate seeing these lower level paint jobs sometimes.

That's perfectly reasonable. I like seeing that which is possible rather than that which is probable. I find it motivating to try and up my game.

I read, or heard, that the GW 'Eavy Metal studio intentionally paints at a lower level to avoid discouraging people. Considering how well GW is doing these days, they might be on to something.

This new light and fun game, Will it be Sci-Fi? Recall back a few years when Bostria mentioned things CB might do, and a fantasy themed TTG was one of them.

I wonder if they've given any further thought to the 15mm mass battle game set in the Infinity universe that they mentioned a few years back?

No idea. I doubt that such a game would be light though. Fun, most certainly, but not light. Whatever it is, it will be at the end of 2020, so we have quite a wait for it. Teasers probably at at Adepticon at the earliest, but more likely GenCon, since Adepticon will be for C1-N4 news, and possibly a preview of the Pan-O Yu Jing box. Said box has to be Svalarheim (Pan-O) versus White Banner (Yu Jing).

My bet is that Code One comes out before GenCon and then CB releases N4 and the PanO/Yu Jing box set at GenCon.

In the past CB has done their make releases at GenCon (or close proximity).

I'm wondering if that gives them enough time fir N4, though.
