While Sengoku Basara has been under the game radar in 2017 due to a lack of a new game, the franchise is still actively holding stage theaters in Japan. At the end of 2017, Hiroyuki Kobayashi had promised that there will be major announcements related to Sengoku Basara in 2018. And this may have already begun with a recent announcement for an anime adaptation of the school-themed spinoff manga, Gakuen Basara.

As a reference, the latest mainline Sengoku Basara game, Sengoku Basara 4, was revealed at the 2013 Basara Festival. Combined with the aforementioned promise, there should be a good chance of Kobayashi announcing a brand new game to the Sengoku Basara series at this event.
