Default New Mercruiser drive release date?

Does anyone have any info on when Merc expects to release the next generation drive? Will it require a trans or will it be shiftable?

It will have Forward - Neutral - Reverse in applications up to 576 horsepower. In any applications higher than that, it will have Neutral - Neutral - Neutral.

Mercruiser will offer this drive under the six? I guess that would discontinue the 3 and 5? It would be real nice if this drive is shiftable with no trans.( less weight) See if you can get any info.
