Shadow has announced on Twitter and in their English Discord server that they will be holding a special announcement for their US Customer-base on November 18th at 9:00 AM PST/12:00 AM EST.

Although I have not heard anything specific about this announcement, it is always fun to speculate what it may be. Since we already have additional storage available for most of the United States, my guess is that it could be one of these three announcements.

Building a new Datacenter

Although this one would help a handful of US-based Shadow users, this may not be the announcement as they have stated this is a "special announcement" for the US.

New Hardware Tiers or update to current Boost tier

With the end of the year drawing to a close, it could be that they will announce another timeline for when the Ultra and Infinite tiers are coming to the United States. It will most likely start with a Beta phase, much like how Shadow handled the EU's new tiers.

Another aspect of this could be that they upgrade the Boost Tier's components, specifically the CPU. One of the most suggested ideas given to Shadow has been an upgrade to the CPU of the Boost Tier, as a lot of games are bottlenecked not by the Quadro P5000 but the Intel Xeon processor that the current Boost tiers utilize.

Return of the Shadow Ghost

The Shadow Ghost has been out of stock for quite some time. This was due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has eaten up most of the year. Shadow may be able to get the Ghost back on a somewhat normalized schedule to start selling them again.

I hope it is the new tiers. Although the Boost tier has worked perfectly fine for me, utilizing the faster processor in the new tiers will help me out a ton!
