I remember reading the 2012 post but I haven't heard anything about it since then

Eventually. Avadon 3 was just released, so it's possible that a Geneforge remake will be the next project in line. Check back around the middle of next year, maybe.

:(
That long for news if it is in the planning? I'm not asking about the finished product. Just when we should expect it.

Someday.  Jeff has the Avernum 3 remake and possibly a new game on his to do list.  He just finished updating all his iPad games to 64 bit so they could still be sold.

It isn't in the planning.  It is in the speculation.  Jeff has said he'll do it someday, but that's it.

Go back through Jeff's tweets:

Avernum 3 remake is early 2018, hopefully since he hasn't nailed down anything beyond he started it.

Geneforge remake is a few years.

From this blog:
"Finally, I've stuck with this particular engine, graphics style, and world style for too long. After I remaster Avernum 3 (our most popular game over the years), I'm going to do something way different. It's well past time."

How long it will take him before releasing it is unknown.

Hey! Thank you. I'd missed that one. Very exciting!
You wait so long for fantasy authors, it is very demoralising. Spiderweb Software is better. There is always a game to reload or catch up with, and the new stuff never stops coming. It's amazing.
