    A new teaser has been posted on Instagram and Facebook. Screenshot below. DTG have never (or I’ve never known them) to post timed announcements, this could be something big. Post speculations below!

    My best guess is TSW 2021 announcement.

    Glad you're optimistic. Calling it now that it's a new UK route, to restart the cycle.

    UK Route -> US Route -> DE Route -> 3 Locos (UK, US, DE), repeat.

    I'm gonna have to go with Mikey_9835 and 66050 are saying, that's my guess too. I'd also assume that the route will be a more Peninsula Corridor length British route, if not slightly longer, with perhaps a surprise or two, but other than that probably not much... I'm not expecting a lot of new features from TSW2021.

    Its gonna be TSW 2021 I think they wouldn't announce a route or loco without a picture. The editors my second best guess.

    Good thinking mate, Peninsula corridor came out with TSW2020, when it was at the American part of the cycle. TSW2021 falls in the UK part, hopefully includes a 50(ish) mile route!

    Don't want to burst the hope bubble but following the DTG trackrecord, Mastery V2 and a "new" 27 mile UK route seem very likely. The Editor would a blessing tho. I am hoping for the latter ;). Cheers

    I think seeing as we haven't had a route I think it will be around 60 miles.......hopefully, fingers crossed.

    I think it's the editor. Multiplayer seems unlikely because of their "asset protection" scheme.

    Just had a ponder, and the background colours very much resemble the colourful livery of East Midlands Trains. Thoughts anyone?

    In that case the white would be dominant. Don't you think?

    Hmm... I don't think that's it personally, but the colors do probably mean something. If it's TSW2021, then it's probably for the 3 different routes that would be included or something, because remember, they'll make a bigger deal about that then the potential new UK route.

    So... some of the red is for DB red, the rest of the red along with the black and white could be for CN, and the blue and yellow could be for something BR blue, either TVL instead of East Coastway for some reason or a hint at the new route. Just a guess.

    EDIT: that's gray, not white, uh... nvm then

    Look at the colours - red+white/gray and blue+yellow, that could be Denmark and Sweden - some route going over the Oserund strait, maybe Copenhagen to Malmö with some branches? Imagine literally crossing the sea with a train.

    I would love blue for the Czech railways, yellow for Regio jet and black for Leo express. That would point at the DC part of the third corridor.

    One can surely dream.

    The red part of the teaser looks more like the old LNER livery, think at the time it was callled east coast mainline, something close to that, and the first part looks like the intercity livery

    My guess is the TSW2021 announcement. DTG have a knack for building up hype and when the announcement is actually made you feel "Meh, is that, all?"

    I will mark my calendar, but so far expect nothing. Years of gaming made me into a cynical bastard.

    I would suggest to everyone to keep their hype down until the announcement is made on Tuesday. This could mean anything from full-length ECML to changing the colours of the menus. Don't set yourselves up for disappointment by building castles in the sky.

    The red and greycolours could be something like this öbb railjet. But the other 2 colours are strange. I was also thinking it could be a route with 2 train operating companies 1 blue yellow and 1 red grey ...

    They could of course just be generic random colour swooshes for the graphic background. But blue and yellow and red and grey are BR and Railfreight colours and it is time for that British route we are all waiting for.

    Totally agree. But please DONT let it be BR style or is TSW stuck in the past? Btw the colours could randomly have been chosen to confuse us - just saying ...

    TSW 2021 announcement most likely.

    I doubt it’d be for a route or DLC, or at least not the main part of the announcement, as the way they’ve done it sounds like they’re advertising something big.

    Something which benefits all TSW users. If it was a route and/or DLC for a specific country, they would not have advertised it like this.

    I think it will be a new route. I am pretty sure it will be a UK route... if so, I hope it is modern. I really wish it would be a route from outside the same old UK-Germany-US bubble.

    Ohhh let the hype begin! As (mostly) everyone has said it’s most likely for TSW 2021, bringing a menu and UI refresh, and the possible announcement of TSW’s next flagship route!

    Of course, the UK is next, so, I guess everyone start speculating down there (I don’t know a lot about British routes lol).

    As it is an announcement about an announcement then the announcement it announces must be something big. In order of likelihood it will possibly be one or more of the following things...

    1. TSW2021 being unveiled
    2. The first steam train in TSW
    3. A big long flagship route with much content
    4. Editor
    5. Multiplayer
    6. First third party route and it’s a new country
    7. All of the above in one massive announcement

    Exciting? Yeah, it’s exciting all right.

    Caution... excitement may go up or down before or on 9th June. Results may vary. Store excitement in a cool place away from bright light and strong flavours. If excitement gets into your eyes, rinse with water for 5 minutes and seek medical advice as soon as possible. Keep away from children.

    I have a good feeling it could be the announcement for the next update to TSW. Soemtime last summer, we heard about TSW2020.

    I will be glad to see any one of these occur for the June 9th announcement. I am definitely rooting for #7.

    Out of these, I think 1, 2, 3 and 6 are likely, from listening to Matt and Sam on streams they seem to be nowhere near finishing 4 and 5 as they seem to not even have the whole concept yet. Would be nice to see though

    This is now the loading screen in TSW. The only loading screen on PS4 at least.

    So that rules out the announcement being the editor then surely? Otherwise it wouldn't be advertised on console.

    Maybe instead of one color scheme for the GUI, we'll have 4 (Black/Blue/Yellow/Red)!

    Oh and one more speculation, instead of the current black background for the loading screen and then the advertisement video b4 the game loads, we’ll have a concept like that background? Gray and weathered out, like a locomotive step ladder?

    The timing of this teaser lines up as a TSW2021 rebranding....it was around this time last year that TSW2020 was teased. It will almost certainly be announced alongside a new route for the deluxe edition of TSW2021

    There are no depots with unreleased DLCs on SteamDB other than the Class 20 so I think that this announcement being a route or train is unlikely. In this case, I think it's the editor.
