We've been looking forward to seeing Blender 2.80 in 2019 while now we finally have a better idea for when it will actually see the light of day.

The Blender project has shared more of their current release plan around Blender 2.80. Under their current plan, by mid-May they should finish remaining features and UI work. In June they will work on updating the user-manual and targeting high priority bugs and other issues.
