As we close out 2018, I thought this might be a good time to look at where we are in Reason 10’s lifecycle and to try to predict when we might expect 11 to come out.
As you may recall, Reason 10 was a surprisingly early release. Not only did it come on the heels of the landmark 9.5, but at 458 days after Reason 9, it was the earliest major version release since version 6, which came only 401 days after Reason 5.
So, where does that put us for Reason 11? While my old post has over a decade of data, the industry has changed since then and it’s likely more representative to limit ourselves to the three most recent versions.
Code: Select all
Version Date Days since 10 9/22/2017 458d 9 6/21/2016 630d 8 9/30/2014 518d
In any case, it’s probably safe to say “Q2 2019” for the next major version of Reason, with an emphasis on late Q2. Of course, there's no way to say for sure! The particulars of Reason 11's development might mean a release that is later still. But, based on the math, that's the most likely.
