It’s been more than five years and fans have eagerly been waiting for New Game Season 3. Here’s everything we know about Season 3 of the New Game anime so far.
If you are a fan of CGDCT, you must have heard about New Game anime. For those who don’t know, CGDCT stands for “Cute Girls Doing Cute Things.” The genre has become quite popular among the fans.
New Game is a great anime series that falls under the category and the anime adds elements of slice of life and comedy to make it more fulfilling.

New Game Season 3: Canceled or Renewed
Since the end of season 2 in 2017, fans have been wondering if New Game Season 3 is coming out or not.
Even though fans have been making predictions of the next season, there is no official announcement regarding the third season from creators.
Season 3 of the anime has been in demand from fans since the end of season 2 in 2017. Studio Dago Kobo has been resisting the renewal at first because of the lack of manga material.
One of the main reasons behind the delay in Season 3 production has been the lack of source material, as the previous seasons have used all manga volumes.
However, now that is not a problem because of the release of more manga volumes, giving creators ample amounts of content to create another season.
Three volumes were covered in the 2016 debut season. Season 2 used the other three volumes by 2017. After the anime, writer Shōtarō Tokunō took one year to publish Volume 7.
Till today, 13 Volumes have been published, with the latest one launched in September 2021.
Therefore, it gives plenty of content for season 3 of the anime to cover.
There is high hope for the next season as its official twitter account has been kept up to date till 2021.
