So, I was a bit bored today. Which led to me look at all the spoilers from SanSan to create the theory for the datapack names.
As we know from the announcement of the Cycle, the datapacks were created thematically independant from each other. As we saw from The Valley preview, the first datapack deals with the genetic modification from The Valley, we saw these in the form of agendas and the genetic resources for the runners.
With that in mind, I looked through the spoilers to try and guess which will be the next expansion.
From the FFG announcement we know that we will visit the Underway and the World Expo. From some comments from 4chan and reddit we also know an University is coming.
So, let the speculation begin!
SanSan Cycle #2: So far, the cards we know from this pack are the ICE named after famous people: Crick, Turing, Oppenheimer and Meru Mati. So, my guess is that this pack is either the World Expo or the University one. From elimination (read later) my guess is that this pack will contain the World Expo. So, the other partially spoiled card from this theme is Weyland’s Corporate Town, so we are probably getting it in this pack.
SanSan Cycle #3: The cards we know from this pack are CrowBar, Ryon Knight and Little Engine. So no especullation on this one.
SanSan Cycle #4: The cards from this pack are Drive By, Forger, Muertos Gang Member and Chameleon. So this is probably the Underworld pack. Underway it is!
SanSan Cycle #5: The cards we know from this are Trope and An Offer You can refuse. From the partial spoilers we onow NBN is getting a card called Casting Call. Which, combined with trope led me to believe that we are getting a LA/Hollywood pack. Since Trope is is this pack, My guess is that the 5th pack will deal with Hollywood.
SanSan Cycle #6: This card will bring us Team Sponsorship and Ancestral Imaging. My guess is this will be the University one. Since we have research and sports in the same pack. Expect the partiLly spoiled London Library in it!
So, this was it. I hope someone enjoys reading this speculation. What are your thoughts? Any ideas? What might be the misterious third pack?
