I haven’t been much present on the forums since the Prophet & Warlock DLC (due to something called real life), but it seems in the meanwhile the status of Araby has changed from “it will eventually come for TWW2” to “it is excluded from the possible new races spectrum for the whole trilogy”. Is there any announcement / reddit or forum comment on CA’s part to confirm that? I’ve been looking for the relevant topic but all I have found are endless complaints that Araby is never going to arrive. Clearance is needed urgently.
The other thing is that as much as I love recent LPs and (especially) reworks - they are so much better than past LPs - I still think ONE new race before TWW3 would do much for longevity of this game (think Norsca for game one). Araby IMO would be the most interesting choice, even if it requires creating OC characters from scratch.
