You can guess upgrades are coming without anyone from SCS saying anything, lol. You could do that in 2013 as well and here we are with MP, much better lighting, SMAA and AO. The real question is WHEN and not IF.

I assume people who watch such bs YT channels imagine ETS2 running on an engine similar to FH5.

More efficient multi-threading and multi-processing would be cool

Bingo. We just never know what they are working on. Lots of things takes more than just 1-2 years to develop. They say nothing because its not time to say anything. When things become more full circle and can be implemented to where we see it within 6-12 months, then its perhaps time to talk about it. Until then, we are in the dark and that is how you avoid promising dates. For me, all I need to know is things are on the radar because eventually, it will release.

What pisses me off is speculating/affirm a date which at no time was mentioned by Pavel on Stream. Pavel ONLY said that ETS2 and ATS will support DirectX 12 at some point in the future. This time can be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 years. Remember that around 2014 more or less, that's when was "revealed" here on the forum that the SCS team was working on DirectX 11 support for both games and well, we only received DirectX 11 suport on 2019 in the 1.35 update in Experimental phase and on 1.36 update in definitive form. Just wait and when the right time will come.

We already knew Dx12 was in the works. Pavel stated as much in the live stream when they released Dx11. IIRC he said something along the lines of Dx12 was planned for some time in the future. My memory is old and fuzzy but I do remember that point, as I said at the time that it was a natural step to go to dx11 before dx12 rather than try to jump from dx9 straight to dx12.

I don't think SCS will drop support for DX11 when DX12 will come. DX12 is only limited to Windows 10 & I see a lot of people still using Windows 7, even in this forum. I know DX12 will let the developer make much more optimized game contents & help them control the interaction between game engine & hardware more accurately. But if they dropped support for DX11 a lot of players using Windows 7 will force them to use OpenGL or lost completely. Which is not good for any company. So I think both DX11 & DX12 will co-exist for several years before they dropped support for DX11.

DX11 will be dropped in the future, the moment Vulkan replaces openGL

Nvidia will drop win 7 - 8 support this august.
You can't expect support for new tech and a wide bunch of old OS in the same time. SCS is a small company.

I hope SCS will not quit with DX11 support, because I'm on Win 7, and I'm fine with it 😶
