The new edition comes this summer. Thanks to BoK we have some rumours of the supposed schedule of that time:

April-May: Dark Angels/Fallen
June-Aug: 6th Ed
Oct-Nov: Chaos Space Marines

The white dwarf spines appear to corroborate this:

Take that how you will.
75hastings69 confirms most of this:

This leaves us with the following:

  • 6th edition coming June/July
  • the starter box coming shortly afterwards
  • Dark Angels being one of the forces featured in the box
  • Chaos being the other force, including a new plastic Dread, as well as stuff apart from strictly CSM
