Ok so I have been seeing alot of people saying latest Sword Art Online ARC was officially announced. But when I search for anything relating I dont see any announcements or confirmation. Even the AniPlex site does not show any news feeds or release info. I am wondering if anyone can confirm this Anime release or is this just an Urban Legend?

The amount of money sao brings will garner another season.

Technically Mother's Rosario is probably the fourth arc.

That said, there isn't news on a third season yet. The multi-novel Alicization arc is still ongoing so I would assume they're in no big rush to adapt yet. There were nearly two years between the first and second seasons, I'm guessing there will be a similar time table regarding the third as well.

There has been no confirmation of a 3rd season.

Lately I've been thinking this might not be true. Its highly doubtful SAO will get a third season for these reasons:

-The second season only sold half as well as the first. Third season might be half of that. Not financially worth it considering how ambitious of a project adapting Alicization would be. Twice the cost for half the return is not a good investment.

-Secondly the material itself would be very hard to adapt and on top of that it's unfinished which makes its even less desirable.

-Thirdly, the director of season 2 said he wouldn't do another season so theres another problem.

Overall I think its pretty unlikely, at least anytime soon.
