The key visual on the official site says "The Last Season" (of Alicization World of Underworld arc)... will it be the official title?
Anyways, cannot wait for the continuation.
Found a region-unlocked ver. of the PV

Will this be the final anime adaptation of Sao, or is there any other arc after alicization which is yet to be adapted?
google Unital Ring its supposed to be the final story of SAO *hopefully*
It isn't the final arc. It's literally the first arc made by Kawahara for the main light novel as everything before was just from what he wrote before the light novels, from Aincrad to Alicization so in LN, from volume 1 to volume 20 including the 4 main arcs, Mother Rosario and other side stories.

Though its going to be quite the wait the time will allow the studio to maintain both the quality and the pacing that they managed to achieve this season.
Both of which worked in parallel with the strong performances of the VA's to make this season one of the strongest within the series.
Can't wait till Spring to see the tide turn against Gabriel and his new allies.
