I rememeber when  I was younger thinking that the Age of Apocalypse was permanent. \:\(

Knowing information months in advance helps a title in terms of sales. It won't turn many people off of an idea, but it will create interest in other readers.

Hiding the information from fans wouldn't work out. The demand would be huge, and you would just get rumor sites.

It also hurts with promotion, a publisher wouldn't be able to promote a future title. Now if we see something like the teaser image for the Return, we can generate lots of discussion about the idea.

I can certainly understand where you are coming from, but it's an antiquated, impractical, and bad idea.
