- 27 May 2019: Forgotten Worlds - Book 3 bought by CGL (Frabby)
- Herb Beas' manuscript for the third book of the Forgotten Worlds series was bought by CGL for publication (which will properly canonize it). As a consequence of the deal, the chapters published as fan fiction so far were redacted, save for the first two.
- 15 April 2019: Forgotten Worlds - Book 3 script published (Frabby)
- On the BattleTech Forum, author and ex-Line Developer Herbert A. Beas has begun publishing the hitherto unpublished third part of the Forgotten Worlds serial, titled "Escape from Jardine". Mind that, at this point, the publication is inofficial and thus technically amounts to fan fiction.

- 27 November 2018: House Arano sourcebook announced (Frabby)
- Following the sometimes intense and passionate discussions on the BattleTech Forum (and elsewhere) about the BattleTech computer game by Harebrained Schemes and its adherence to established BattleTech canon, HBS and Catalyst Game Labs dropped something of a bombshell by announcing House Arano (The Aurigan Coalition) as an upcoming product. Fully canonical, it is to be set right after the conclusion of the Arano Restoration storyline from the game, and is expected to canonize most if not all of the new content created by HBS for their game including the Aurigan Reach periphery region and its history.

- Our Policy:Notability has been revised, and was substantially altered in the process by User Consensus. We now positively embrace Stub articles as preferrable over summary list articles going forward.
A related but separate result is that we chose to abandon the concept of "minor" for categories and other articles, because it is deemed too subjective, impossible to properly define, and ultimately unhelpful. Avoid this word.
