There was a fellow whose predictions were spot on for every release from September this year so far, and he said the following for next year. Based on the track record, I'm certain this is accurate.

In January 2022, we will get:
Codex with reworked plastic Darkstrider

After January 2022, we will get (in no as-of-yet defined order):
Plenty of new kits for 9th Edition.

Regular Possessed, Bikers, Chosen, Warpsmith, Cultists (BSF-style), Renegade Guard (BSF-style), human mutants, possessed humans (the latter two are monstrously horrible. Think of the Greater Possessed but cranked up to 11), cultist standard bearer (character), cultist character with bodyguards.

Chaos Knights:
New Knight variant with Codex

Craftworld Eldar:
A massive, but incomplete, update of Eldar
Without a specific date but in the pipeline:


World Eaters


Astra Militarum with veteran-style Cadians. Two new regiments are also in the works. New Kasrkin and new vehicle, designed to fit between the Leman Russ and the Baneblade.'

That's not blatant, this is blatant: I'm super happy that I'm playing Austria, the greatest nation in all of Diplomacy!

I actually find it kind of funny that people are saying 6th edition was the one they enjoyed.  Definitely viewing that with rose coloured glasses because 7th came out half-way through GWs typical edition length (2.5 years instead of 4 to 5), and it was more or less 6.5 edition.

This is why I said I am in the minority. I quite liked 6th at the time and was really pissed that 7th came out so fast, especially since 7th was WORSE and harder to get into and literally killed the hobby in my area.

beslubber 7th Edition, seriously. Worst edition of the game.

I got into 40k in 2nd Edition, and I'd rate them as follows (worst to best):

7th (utter madness)
2nd (zany fun, but ultimately unplayable)
3rd (dull)
4th (several non-functional mechanics, lots of bad army books)
9th (fun with a lot of needless complexity)
8th (Fun! Simple!)
5th (One of the best balanced editions all-told, best tournament edition)
6th (A step-up from 5th in most ways, though had some stupid broken combos)
