As the Winter Comiket 91 doujinshi fair continues at Tokyo Big Sight, more news continues to trickle out, including the announcement of a new work coming in 2017 from 07th Expansion, the makers of Higurashi When They Cry and Umineko When They Cry.
The announcement was made on the official 07th Expansion Twitter feed by Ryukishi07:

“I asked the staff, and they said that yesterday at Comiket there were a lot of cosplayers dressed as characters from Umineko. To all the people that chose to dress as characters from my work in such cold weather, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The next entry in the ‘When They Cry’ series is scheduled to start in 2017. It’s going to be a completely different work than Higurashi or Umineko! Have a happy New Year! (Ryu)”
It looks like visual novel fans will have something new to be excited about as they approach the new year.
