At a 10th anniversary event celebrating the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anime franchise it was announced that a "relaunch" of the anime has been green-lit. Shortly thereafter the official twitter account for the franchise officially confirmed that announcement. The unveiling of this new project is currenctly scheduled for next spring.

According to reports the new Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anime will adapt the "Higurashi Outbreak" short story by series creator Ryukishi07 of 07th Expansion. The setting of this short story is the same Hinamizawa village of the previous series entries. Due to the outbreak of a mysterious virus in 1983 the village has been completely sealed off. Fan favorites Keiichi Maebara and Rena Ryūgū must deal with the outbreak.

Toshifumi Kawase, series script supervisor of the original Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anime and director of its sequel Higurashi no Naku Koroni Rei, has been tapped to helm this new entry in the franchise.

The Higurashi franchise focuses on a series of murders that coincide with an annual festival in a quiet rural village. What began as a murder-mystery dojin soft sound novel has since inspired two television anime series, two live-action films, four OVAs, a 17 volume novel series, a 38 volume manga series, and four volume light novel series.

I was actually thinking the same. But they did mention "Short Story", so let's leave it at that. Hoping they'll add more information soon. <3

It would seem that most people are anticipating that this will be either a movie or OVA rather than a proper series. That would make sense given the content.

i've watched Higurashi before and i was like damn, i don't really like this anime even though my first impression of the anime picture was like"hmmmm this anime could be interesting..."
then i watched it somehow gave me nightmares....
then i found an app in my iOS and the title says "Higurashi when they cry" and i was like Bitch please "Higurashi when i cry" T_T

Oh man, I remember when I first watched the very first Higurashi, that was intense at the time since then nothing really makes me cringe but Higurashi sure did back in the day. /ok I'm looking forward to this, regardless if it's a Series, OVA or Movie. /no1
