During a live event hosted by developer MAGES for the Steins-Gate franchise, two new releases were announced for 2021. The first project is about Steins; Gate 0 Elite, a new game for consoles that is already in development. This release will again feature voice actors Mamoru Miyano (voiced by Okabe Rintarou), Asami Imai (voiced by Kurisu Makise), and Tomokazu Seki (voiced by Hashida Itaru).
Later another new project was announced of which only few details were revealed. This new production will be titled STEINS; 00 (also written as STEINS; ●●). The developer clarified that this title will be released as a new STEINS series rather than as a new STEINS work; GATE.
The original visual novel developed and distributed by 5pb and Nitroplus was released in Japan for Windows operating systems in October 2009. It subsequently received different ports to other consoles. The 24-episode animated adaptation premiered in April 2011, followed by a 23-episode second season titled Steins; Gate 0, released in April 2018.

Steins; Gate Synopsis
Self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe rents a room in an old building in Akihabara, where he indulges in his hobby of inventing possible “gadgets of the future,” with his lab partners Mayuri Shiina and Hashida Itaru. The three of them spend time playing with their most promising item yet, known as the “Microwave-Phone,” which has the strange function of turning bananas into stacks of green gel. While miraculous in itself, the phenomenon does not provide nothing concrete to Okabe's scientific research, or so they believed until members of the lab discover that the Microwave-Phone can actually send e-mails to the past, altering the flow of history.
