What motivates WoTC to destroy Canon in D&D...


palaeomerus:
Steel production is bad for the environment so all non industrial or tool use of steel is terrible....so after the cataclysm they used lacquered leaves for currency.

Jam The MF:
"Why do they want to erase everything prior to 2014?"

Because it is part of their attempt, at an ascendancy to godhood.

Flipped Bird:
I think you've put the cart before the horse. It's been the case for a while now that a lot of lazy writers see canon as a burden and rely heavily on prequels, remakes, and soft reboots that allow them to cherry pick the most memorable (and marketable) parts of an IP and cut away the rest. The fact that they will be creating an opportunity to force more of their politics into their settings is just icing on the cake for them.

Thats been a thing since at least the 70s.

Keep in mind WOTC wanted to hard reboot Dragonlance as its 5e setting. "What if the group never met at the tavern?"
