I thought that 12/17 is last year. And this year its “late December”.

But I would LOVE to hear back at 12/17!!

Anyone heard of anything regarding ED1?

My guess is either the 15th or 16th of December.

My guess is latest Friday the 17th. In the last 5 years, they’ve been released on weekdays, so I don’t think they’d release them on a weekend. Might just be a random coincidence but trying to find a common factor/pattern to nail down a date.

Does anyone have an idea of what time it will be out?

Last year it was 4:00PM, however 2019, 2018, AND 2017 all came out at 5:00PM. My guess is one of those two.


Re my last post: all times I noted were EST.
