Has anyone heard about this updated version of Moo's Pillar commentary coming out next year? I can't find anything on the internet describing how extensive the update is.

Thanks. I spotted that too. I wonder if the commentary itself is heavily revised. Or possibly introductory matters and bibliography. Maybe all three.

The Eerdmans's site mentions a release date of June 15, 2021. Perhaps it is still too much 'in progress' to fully comment on what has been revised?

I'm looking at this as probably not too big of a deal if you already have the first edition. That said, I like Moo.

The page count difference though makes me think it might be a more significant update than Kruse's on the Epistles of John.

Yes, it is a very good sign. I think that and all he might have picked up research wise in the years since the first volume would make it worthwhile.

Other than what appears to be a larger page count, the only other information I've found is a publication date of June 15th and the following statement:

The second edition is based upon the newest version of the NIV and incorporates the latest scholarship. It has been expanded, updated, and revised throughout.

Just spotted that if you don't have the original edition  of James in the Pillar series and like a deal, the original editions of both James and the Letters of John seem to be at lower prices than previously.

There’s a bundle too for $31.03 that includes the revised James volume, but it’s cheaper at $27 if you order it separately: https://www.logos.com/product/203292/pillar-new-testament-commentary-pntc 

Just check out the link for the 2nd edition and you can preorder for less.
