WTF is a Multi-Platform Storytelling Experience as related to the 5e D&D TTRPG?

Saw it on Tenkar's Tavern---5e next summer.  Worst kept secret in the world.  Looking at the press release though, they say:

"Players will be immersed in rich storytelling experiences across multiple gaming platforms."

Lemme just echo Erik Tenkar's thoughts and ask---What the fuck does that mean?  They've been designing a ruleset for Muds, Mushes, Moos, MMO's, Boardgames, cardgames, and CRPG's at the same time?

Does anyone who playtested thin thing have any clue what this is all about?
