This year (August 3rd to be exact) marks the 20th Anniversary for KOEI Tecmo’s Shin Sangoku Musou (or Dynasty Warriors 2 onwards for us westerners) series, and producer Akihiro Suzuki has spilled some news of what is in store.
In an interview with Famitsu Magazine, Akihiro Suzuki exclaimed he hoped to announce a new Dynasty Warriors Anniversary title in the near future, with more than one game coming. Suzuki also re-confirmed that there would be no Dynasty Warriors 9 Xtreme Legends, which rules it out as part of the Anniversary celebration releases.
“The [Dynasty Warriors 9] system itself isn’t suited to Xtreme Legends.”
Suzuki also liked the direction they took with Dynasty Warriors 9, but admitted that there was a lot of issues, resulting in them biting off more than they could chew. However he would like to build upon the critical feedback in perhaps a ‘Dynasty Warriors 9 II’ – much like Samurai Warriors 4 II – though this is purely his own opinion and not something currently in production.
Lastly Suzuki talks about that future numbered Dynasty Warriors titles may not be an open world, though he would like to try and incorporate more ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’ functionality to the game.
We should be hearing very soon about starting plans of the Dynasty Warriors Anniversary celebration, for now check out this lovely video featuring the titles over the years:

KOEI Tecmo had leaked a while ago that Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate would be coming out, and will be launching later this year in Japan. Now we know that the West is also receiving the updated title, and will be arriving February 2020.
The game will be launching on PS4, XB1, Nintendo Switch and Steam. You’ll be able to buy the entire game physically or digitally, though if you already own the base game you can buy a cheaper upgrade bundle much like A.O.T 2 Final Battle.

Gaia is the completely new character, and is the girl in the teaser trailer. She will be wielding Hecatoncheires as her weapons, and she uses them to be able to ride into battle. Her attacks are her summoning infinite arms to pummel her enemies.
Joan of Arc is the second character that was confirmed. Though many will know her from Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, or her debut game of Bladestorm. It is likely she will play and look similar to her Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate character, but more information should be available soon.
This by no means that no other new characters will be coming, just what we have confirmed right now.
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate will launch in December 2019 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan, and on PC February 2020, also in Japan. No news on a Western announcement yet, likely to be set for 30th August.
