KADOKAWA absorbed its Enterbrain subsidiary and dissolved it in October 2013. Today Enterbrain is a Brand Company of KADOKAWA:

I think that those are good sales stats considering that LN appeals to a certain audience and because the digital age where online LN series has perhaps lowered the phys. sales of LN a bit.

Reki Kawahara is a writing machine; hopefully his work has the time to hit an editor before it goes to print. I'm guessing this means SAO III is probably go for 2015.

Tons of people are already devouring the web novel.

2016 more likely; SAO: Alicization is a better name than SAO III because it's going to be all one arc, and it sounds cooler. please no recap episodes even though there probably will be in this hypothetical situation.
