    It's not in beta yet, so I don't see any chance of it being released in May. I don't even think it will be released in June, maybe even July.

    3 releases a year and 2019.1 came out mid April so roughly 4 month after that. Probably mid August.

    This. Unity themselves don't even know which month the release will come out.

    This is true. When you look at previous release dates for 2017 & 18 they dont stick to a 4 month cycle.
    I guess it just depends on when they feel its ready.

    sure, thanks for roughly estimations, I still believe, if beta version will appear at the end of this month - most probably, release version will come on summer. But when you promise something - the devil postpones all his affairs and begins to do everything so that you did not succeed = )

    Unity has not really been following that, though. For example, in the following image it indicates that 2018.4 (LTS) will ship at the same time as 2019.1.

    I'm somewhat sure that in the next six months they will release 2019.2.

    We already have 2019.3 alpha so it seems things are going fast

    I dont think they will push back a unity release because of a bug with 3rd party software, and reading through that thread it does not seem to be an issue on unitys side but on microsofts although I will admit I have not encountered the bug myself so do not speak from a postion of absolute certainty

    You didn't read everything. The problem is not on Microsoft side; it's an integration problem. @miniwolf_unity is working on it. See his post #23.

    Aiming for around the middle of the year; but that depends on if it is in a stable state to ship!

    It will always vary, people should focus on the released versions only if they have a deadline shorter than a year :)

    I wouldn't use a number of betas as an accurate prediction. I remember Unity 4.6 having atleast 20 betas!

    Have you tried asking in the section dedicated to asking questions about the alpha?

    thanks, I asked on Unity 2019.2 forum branch and they confirmed that this bug was fixed in 2019.1 and that means in all next builds including 2019.2. So 2019.2 release version might be good to go (as it will be published pretty soon most likely).
