With the Steins;Gate 10th Anniversary well under way; MAGES has announced that Steins;Gate 0 Elite has begun development for unannounced platforms. Its release date and price are also currently undecided.

Steins;Gate 0 Elite is a direct sequel to Steins;Gate Elite, which released in late 2018 in Japan and worldwide in 2019 is available for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation Vita, Microsoft Windows, and iOS.
