The New Code Geass Anime project has been named! It is known as Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito (Code Geass Side Story: Akito of the Ruined Nation).

A breif synopsis of sorts is present at Moetron:

In this broken world, we still dream
The hellish European front.
A small squad infiltrates enemy territory to save their allies.
That squadron’s Nightmare Devicers are boys and girls from Zone 11.
The mission’s chance of success is only 5%.
Why do they fight

Kawaguchi Yoshitaka had mentioned a new Code Geass Anime in the works, but little more than the name has been currently revealed. No word on what the format will be. Since this is a side story, All bets are off for this being a remake or a direct sequel to the Lelouch storyline. Lelouch’s story is probably done, and Akito is probably going to the name of the new character that takes the spotlight.

It is worth noting that the year is A.T.B 2017, and we all know that Lelouch and his rebellion began in A.T.B 2010. That means that, if you account for the events of R2, which took place a year after, then we’re still looking at a time line that takes place after Lelouch’s death/disappearance, and a good 5-6 years after at that. It definitely means that this is a continuation of the same universe as the previous R2 shows were.

Opinions on the new project are bound to be mixed, but rather than tread on sacred ground, Sunrise and Kawaguchi are probably taking the safer route and making a side story/spinoff series in the same universe. We’ll update you as we learn more.
