    "More ways to fight monsters" might also mean support for more cerebral and social tactics for hunters, as opposed to the "kick in doors and shoot things" that's a sort of default approach.

The idea about "the Vigil is not limited to time and place" sounds interesting, as I remember that Monica said that Hunter would not feature settings in the conventional way, but it was long, long time ago and things may have changed. As I also don't really know if Eternal Flame is still a thing (maybe it will be presented as a part of the stretch goals fur Hunter, maybe not, I don't know), but it sounds that we will get some exploration of the Vigil through history and region- which, in truth, is what Hunter always has been, even if it was not explored in enough details. After all, each of the main supplements included the history of the Vigil, and the organization creation section discussed the idea of local compacts and conspiracies, but that potential was always somewhat limited by all kinds of factors, and it sounds that 2e is going to run with that concept to the next level.

    So to sum it up- it seems we are getting more tricks for hunters, a better distinguish between hunters and mortals and a deeper exploration of the Vigil through history and geography. Which all sounds awesome. I just cross fingers that we will get the short writeup for non core organizations which was promised back in the past. I also need to go and charge my debit card- the Vigil is coming, and I plan to spend on it as much as an Abbey member!
    more ways for the Vigil ehh. well finally, I've been wanting solid ways to be a Barret Commission hunter.

    And to silence any lingering doubts that the above image indeed refers to HtV 2nd ed, we have this:

    They do also say that they, as of monday 20th of January have yet to receive the 'go' from WW/Paradox and so they cannot give an exact date, but that seems to be all they are waiting for.
    The hype, ladies and gentlemen, is real

    Looks plausible if we don't count the teaser!

    I believe Hunter was announced as next in one of the Monday Meeting Notes posts.

    So as Cults of the Blood Gods is near its end, was there any confirmation that Hunter is up next, and when it will be? I need to prepare some money for that Kickstarter.

    This doesn't really go against my point. There's two parts in updating a CofD game: Updating the mechanics to fit the revised system, and improving upon the game-specific material. A lot of the former has already been updated outside of Hunter, and the latter hasn't been discussed yet. What little we have seen didn't spark my interest and anything else would be pure speculation. In short, there's nothing announced about HtV 2e that pulls my interest and makes me look forward to the Kickstarter. No hype, as per the topic of the post I replied to.
