The link refers to a press release on the 1st of January, but I couldn't find any on the WotC website. Is this real or a fake?
Fooled me, but I suspect it is a fake.
I saw the post before you deleted it, so I'll use this time to discuss the idea of an OGL. I am not a Wizards employee, nor do I know anyone who would be providing me this information, but I feel confident in saying that we're never going to see an OGL for D&D again. The market is already so fractured that Wizards knows they would just be setting themselves up for another schism whenever 6E rolls around.
I suspect that you are correct, and have voiced that opinion before. Luckily, the OGL still exists!
