What does 2018 bring for Pathfinder and Starfinder? How has the success of Starfinder gone? More comics?! Paizo’s Erik Mona joins us to talk about the future of Paizo.
I've not been following Starfinder (since finding out it is not similar to Spelljammer) so I was quite surprised to find out about the product schedule that Starfinder is getting. I thought it was going to be a one-shot. But it looks like they are doing three-part adventure paths on a regular basis...and more.

They were waiting to gauge the response to SF before fully committing to a hefty schedule, but it was never intended as just a one-off. They have had a development team in place since the beginning that is separate from their PF development team. They were always intending to continue with it, at the very least as an AP line supporting the core, but the response has been so overwhelmingly positive (and exceeded expectations) that they are now moving forward with it much more aggressively.

The APs will not all be 3 parters, either. They are going to alternate between 3 and 6 parters, depending on the developers' needs for any given storyline. There's more about it here.
