This was a part of an April Fools' Joke, even though it's been over a week since. There will be a Nico Live event with huge announcements on April 10, 2014. Whether there will be a third season or not will be confirmed then. There was no anime season 3 announcements during the Nico Live (both Index and Railgun). I apologize for having been trolled.
#==============================
According to a magazine scan published via a tweet, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun will receive a 3rd season. The staff that was revealed on the scan remains the same. More information will come at a later time.

Tomorrow is an Index/Railgun event in Japan, so it wouldn't even make any sense to announce a new anime project in a magazine one day prior to it.

The very article your source is from mentions that it's a fake (and is an April Fool Day's joke).

Ok, now i don't know what to believe anymore.

Assuming this is true (which apparently isn't confirmed yet?), it's stupid. Another season with 12 episodes full of plot and the rest dedicated to pointless filler. Index III would make a lot more sense.

Was expecting Index III first since they came out in turns before...
(Index I > Railgun > Index II > Railgun S)

Oh well, more from the series is always welcomed... Let's hope it turns out good too.

YES. I was looking forward to more Railgun. Index II was just a mess... I will wait patiently for more Biribiri. :)

What? Not Index 3?

Apr 9, 2014 7:52 AM by NeoAnkara

I'm really happy, more Misaka is always a good thing. Although the arc following the Sisters one is still not complete yet.
But, where is my Index III?

Apr 9, 2014 7:49 AM by Andan210

can't wait :D i really loved the first 2 season :)

Awesome!

Why Raligun?
Damn it.

Index season 3 when

Apr 9, 2014 7:47 AM by Shuhan

Fingers crossed that this is legit

Apr 9, 2014 7:46 AM by ArbiterofWhim

Ah so its not Index.. Well I read the manga so I guess its time to watch the Anime, will be watching.

Apr 9, 2014 7:46 AM by R4vel

Would be happier if they had announced Index III, but good news are good news.
Can't wait to see more Biribiri *-* <3

Where's my Toaru Majutsu no Index third season?
I'm happy to have more Misaka, but there isn't enough manga material for a new season of Railgun, with the saga following the Sisters Arc still running, so we should be forced with more filler, while Index has the battles with God's Right Seat, the Third World War, the Freshmen, Gremlin... a ton of material that can be used
