Quoted from eggbert52:
Stern should move to either Texas or Florida
Yes, because pinball designers who have lived most of their lives in chicago are going to just up and move, and purchasing is going to procure completely new local vendors for parts including cabinets that are currently built by churchill cabinets who still reside in the chicago burbs.
Quoted from Joe_Blasi:
Are they going to have the new place up and going before the end of the year? or more like it will be next year before they start making games at the new place?
Based on what I've seen at my own job that does similar assembly, a single line of product is usually reconfigured in about 3 months. However they have tons of prep work to do (cleaning the factory, roof repair, adding tons of power lines, airlines), and that's just production. I'm sure they aren't going to officially move until they have all the offices built up for the rest of the employees. I wouldn't be surprised if they build TWD and 1 or 2 titles after that at the current factory.
