Breaking News:

Okay I have a somewhat inside source here is what I'm hearing.

Stern has been releasing three games a year, and they're already at two this year with Black Knight and Munsters. That means there is only one more game coming from them. You will see that game in October and it will be Elvira 3. So the breaking news if what I'm being told is true is there will be no JW or Stranger Things. This makes sense because there is no reason what so ever to push out J World because the move came out a year ago now, and the next one isn't out until 2021. Common sense would tell you, would be nice to hitch a ride on that train.

I think you're going to see Elvira in October at Chicago, then in the winter you'll see Stranger Things.

Here is what I learned, in the old days, a pinball company only had one line, they made one game, today Stern makes multiple games. Currently they have everything from Beatles, Deadpool, Black Knight, Munsters, Guardians, Batman, Star Trek, Star Wars all these games on the line. They have orders from all these games and their lines are tied up until late summer, September. They're a business about making money not new pinball games every few weeks.

Lastly, a lot of these places that have bought games, honestly they're running out of room to take on more games, there is already a lot to choose from. If Stern started making 4 or 5 new games a year they're doing nothing but cannibalizing themselves, they know the market.

So here is the bottom line Stern is probably not going to be releasing a new title until October when you'll see Elvira. Use some common sense here... are they really going to release a game here in August then turn around 2 months later and release Elvira.

I doubt it.

So we can pretty much stop going nuts and just look towards October for Elvira 3. If I'm wrong I'm wrong but that is what I've learned. I would probably bet my life on it that if you don't see Elvira then it will be Stranger Things both make sense for an October release.

I will say however I'm scratching my head somewhat... who planned these titles to release in this order? Munsters old 60's horror/comedy tv show, Black Knight an old 90's game with a gothic theme, and then Elvira another 80's comedy horror title. Where is the straight up comedy mixed it or adventure movie or something? Odd it would go down like this.

Maybe somewhere between they announce a vault like putting another game into production like Tron, but that won't be anything new. I think the next new game will be in October Elvira 3.

#3907 3 months ago

Well that explains the prepare to be disappointed posts

But why the hyped announcement type news at comic-con for a big ‘coming soon’ pitch?!

Only thing I would add is they have been doing 3 cornerstones and 1-2 special makes whether it be a Kapow title or Primus, Supreme, home edition here and there etc...

Could it be some special run? A vault?

Star Wars is probably the biggest title for comic book fans, and the game is directed at home users. Makes sense now!

#3910 3 months ago

Your source should read Stern's press release announcing the unveiling of the next pin at the SD event.

#3911 3 months ago
Quoted from Psw757:

I did add that to my comments, that you might see another game added to their list of production like Tron vault. The prices of Tron have gone thru the roof so yeah I think you might see a Tron thrown into the production. I don't think Black Knight is selling very well, so they could easily let Tron share some line time with Black Knight.

I would probably bet you will see a vault announcement between now and October. But a new game not until October.

#3912 3 months ago

Good reasoning here drfrightner, but Stern literally has announced that they are releasing a new game.

It's not going to be a cornerstone pin.

A TRON vault may be a new game, right? In certain contexts.

#3915 3 months ago

I hope its jaws but prob a vault

#3916 3 months ago

This sounds so reasonable, but I don't want to believe it. I am curious that nothing has leaked about a new theme, so it just adds to that logic.

GoT Vault? Series finale, new code, etc. If it ever happens now's the time... update the art catch the last GoT buzz...

In the Deadflip code update stream, when anyone asked Dwight about it being rereleased, he made a comment or two along the lines of "I can't speak about the rerelease...", rather than saying "I'm not sure if theres a rerelease" which could be read as it is happening he just wasn't allowed to talk about specifics.

Would make sense for a ComicCon audience too

Where have you been? It’s already been said they are making a small run of GOT pins this year. No changes other the new code.

I have been doing that for a few years.. I think the best sources are predicting Jurassic (something).

Like you say, we will see!

Quoted from Owlnonymous:

Good reasoning here drfrightner, but Stern literally has announced that they are releasing a new game.

if you look at font where it says “PREMIERE” it looks somewhat GOT like. slightly disappointed as i feel this is too soon to vault this game. or could it be a cornerstone? hoping for cornerstone but only time will tell. also, i’ve been hearing stuff about a star wars home edition and can anyone confirm?

So apparently the Jaws license is just for the shark I think they should do a Sharknado pin instead

How could it be just for the Shark? I guess you mean the name and the a Shark but nothing else from the movie? Also when it comes to licensing people should really be clear that Stern is only willing to pay for a limited license.

#3928 3 months ago

I have no doubt Bill and Ted will be coming to a pinball in the near future and am very excited about it, but not very likely the one on Thursday.

#3929 3 months ago

Holy crap. 13hrs away. 120+ posts plus another 120+ in the other Stern release thread. I thought we got a bombshell dropped but it's just a bunch of other guys as overly excited as myself lol

Hey Einstein, Elvira isn't a cornerstone pin. It will be a pricey, botique style pin, ala Batman '66.

This July reveal will be the third cornerstone pin.

Stern makes 3 Cornerstone titles (Pro/Premium/LE) a year.

Elvira is no Cornerstone title.

Additionally Munsters may not count for 2019.

#3939 3 months ago

Yep, still at least one more 'Cornerstone' release to go this year and its is not Elvira.

I hope its a re-theme of Pabst Blue Ribbon into Colt 45 with Billy Dee Williams on the translite.
This is a way better use of Lando Calrissian than a Star Wars home version.

Quoted from Roostking:

What of those?

Regarding Elvira I don't "know".
But it's not a regular Stern as development goes. Them sitting there announcing the game way early, to contract design, to being on hold because there were no free ressources because of the current cornerstones...
That as well as Nordman teasing the machines mechs, translating to "no compromise" more than indicate to a not Cornerstone but "Whoa Nellie/ Batman 66" kind of game.

Additionally there just was BK and Munsters wich were Cornerstones abd kinda fill the same gaps, with one being funny Horror and the other one a Classic Pinball license. Can't imagine a third game in a year catered to the same Cornerstone audience.

I of course may be wrong, but my guess is 10 times more educated than drfrighteners (who just got a got of his facts wrong).
