Part of me wants the big finale sooner than 2022, but I realise that's due to being spoilt by the rapid schedule of the last few years. If we're looking at 8 novels, plus probably an anthology or two, that still works out at around 3 books a year, plus no doubt some novellas and shorts. And it's important they do this right. John French kicking it off and Dan Abnett getting to wrap it up are major good steps in that direction, I'd say. It just feels right for Dan to wrap it up, and even though I find he often suffers from rushed endings, I'm also hopeful that this might not suffer so much from that since the whole book will be a wrap up for the entire series.
There's also the question of who the other 6 novel authors will be (though I'm sure others will get to make contributions of some kind). Based on past and recent work in the series, I'd assume the major contenders are ADB, Chris Wraight, Nick Kyme, Gav Thorpe, Guy Haley, James Swallow, Graham McNeill and David Annandale. But you never know, they might also throw us a curveball in there.
