In a recent interview with French outlet ActuGaming, Nihon Falcom President Toshihiro Kondo gave out a hint as to what the next game in the long-standing Ys series will be.
Using Google translate, a Twitter user @AboveUp posted the response from Kondo around what we can look forward to next in the series. See below:

Now, without spoiling the outcome of previous title Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA, this could throw us a couple of clues as to where the next game could be set. At the start of the game, hero Adol is journeying on a ship to Eresia, so it could be that the next game is set there. Alternatively as it follows on shortly from the end of the game, with Adol heading off towards Sounion Port, it wouldn’t be inconceivable for that to be where things pick up from instead.
Either way, expect more announcements on the game in the future.
