GoPro's HERO5 models were delayed last year due to production issues.

Despite having a rough go of it over the last several months, GoPro is still committed to releasing a HERO6 action-cam later this year. The company experienced production delays with its HERO5 action-cam as well as a recall of its Karma drone, so some industry analysts were concerned that GoPro might be moving to a 2-year production cycle.

That's not the case, according to CEO Nick Woodman, speaking during the company's earnings call transcript:

"Yes, we can confirm there will be new cameras and other accessories released during the year and new camera namely being HERO6. But we're not going to share any information as to the timing or any other details around the release of those new products as you can imagine."

It should come as no surprise that the company is keeping its next-gen HERO under wraps but regardless, it's good news for action-cam lovers who want the latest and greatest.
