Wizards of the Coast announced the planned release schedule for Magic: The Gathering sets in 2024 and provided a sneak peek at the themes of each expansion.

Magic: The Gathering turned 30 years old in 2023, and Wizards of the Coast hosted a panel at Gen Con 2023 to reveal what’s in store for the game in the future. The company unveiled all of the sets coming in 2024 and touched upon some of its plans for 2025 and beyond.

These plans have been controversial to some degree, with themes including wrestling, sailing, volleyball, and tennis. More touchy for some fans are more and more collaborations, with partnerships with Magic x Marvel Comics in the works and collaborations with gaming brands like Final Fantasy and Fallout both incoming.

There is a lot in store for fans in 2024, including remaster packs, new realms, and video game crossovers. The first and third quarters of the year are set to be hectic with releases planned. Q2 won’t be a dull one however, with Outlaws of Thunder Junction and Modern Horizons 3 both set to bring a lot to the table. WotC gave a general rundown of what’s in store for each expansion.

Q4 is light outside of Pioneer Masters so it’s likely that the company’s plans for 2024 could expand further than what was confirmed here. 2023 saw a total of 12 major releases with four of them coming in the final quarter of the month.

Ravnica Remastered, Outlaws of Thunder Junction among biggest MTG 2024 releases

Following the success of Dominaria Remastered and Shadows over Innistrad Remastered last year, Ravnica Remastered continues the tradition of bringing back set-defining cards and iconic mechanics from all three previous Ravnica blocks with updates to suit modern gameplay. 

Murders at Karlov’s Way it will bring back fan-favorite characters and have them solve a murder mystery instead of MTG’s typical world-saving scale. A Clue version of Murders at Karlov’s Way will be released on February 29 to give both Magic and board game fans something to get excited for.

Outlaws of Thunder Junction is a Wild West-themed Magic expansion set in a new realm where villains take center stage. The set has been the subject of much fan discussion, and fans are hopeful that iconic villains such as Oko the Trickster and Vraska the Scheming Gorgon will make an appearance after being teased in the promotional art. Modern Horizons 3 will continue to add cards for Modern and Eternal formats just like its predecessors, but unlike previous Horizon sets, it will feature double-sided cards.

Assassin’s Creed is coming to MTG

Bloomburrow marks the beginning of the “Dragonstorm Arc” of the Metronome storyline and will feature a new frontier without humans that is solely ruled by anthropomorphized animals. Duskmourn: House of Horror will live up to its name by drawing inspiration from horror movies of the 1970s and 1980s. The entire world lies within a colossal mansion, with the set promising a new take on horror different from Innistrad or Phyrexian sets.

Lastly, there’s the Assassin’s Creed and Fallout sets which need no introduction and will feature cards from the popular gaming franchises. According to Wizards of the Coast, the Assassin’s Creed set will feature new cards and reprints featuring favorite characters and moments from all of the Assassin’s Creed games. The Assassin’s Creed MTG cards will be legal in Modern.
