Hoping for Ginkgo, that's one I never got to use.

I think polls are broken since the forum transition.

None of the above. I think Deus Engine will replace Rybka, aka better known as Fat Fritz.... :) :)

I think so too.
Why should chessbase give two engines with one sale?
:)
Earnestly, Fritz will be DeusX and Fat Fritz will be LC0 (or Deus) on chessbase- hardware like it is already now.
And then the owner will be able to choose between the sold Fritz- NN(s) and the free LC0- NN(s) with each one of the engines. That would be not so bad, I'd say.

NO !

Free add-on isn't quite accurate, since it really is the showcase piece of Fritz 17, but yes, Fritz 17 will actually come with several engines. There is a new Fritz 17 engine, a conventional AB engine that has no relation to Rybka or Vasik Rajlich, so no idea why his name is dragged into this at all. There is also Fat Fritz, my neural network that runs in a slightly modified lc0. There will also be a smaller Fat Fritz Jr. network that should run well on weak GPUs and even half decently on a CPU at longer time controls. Finally, it also comes with Stockfish (just as in Fritz 16) and Leela itself. Leela will come with the 42850 network, automatically installed and configured. You would not believe how many people have requested this last point.

Ethereal, Laser and Xiphos are open source, so I don't think it will be those. (Yes I know Fat Fritz is based on opensource Lc0 but for the A/B engine I don't think they will go that route). I can't see it being Fire, so that just leaves Ginkgo of that lot. Of course it may be something else not on that list.
