Handheld/console ones have kinda trickled in between the PC releases but I don’t think they’re widely considered the core series anymore, so I didn’t include them. Unite is kinda the only outlier because it’s just…different? But, the Unite store page mentions it’s not a successor to MZ. As far as whether it’s an offshoot might be a dose of copium tho. We’ll see.
It doesn't necessarily have to be if the RPG Maker core engine was strong enough to stand on its own without any third party support/plugins/assets. Without any backwards compatibility all of that would have to be rebuilt or ported to the new engine which would take years. One of the advantages of MV over MZ is it has way more plugins, and it's considerably cheaper.I honestly find annoying the mindset that every rm has to be somewhat <backward> compatible with the previous one. (at least programming wise)
which u wrong they always release an new rpg maker every 5 years (main standalone) so we are actually already at 4 years mark which mean in the summer of 2024 we will prob get an announcement.I think that the next RPG Maker won't be coming for at least another 3-4 years, with focus being placed on selling DLC and adding functionalities to MZ.
The next RM will probably have increased capacities as a result of the average capabilities of computers growing every year. Larger max limits in databases, larger maps, etc.
