The silhouettes match the profiles of three of the "normal/generic" girls in the game, the ones who are mostly useful only as practice fodder for leveling up your more powerful cards. Perhaps a few of those normals are getting "promoted" to fully-featured characters in some way.

Yeah, they look a bit familiar. The middle one looks like Emma. I could be wrong though.

Those aren't new girls, they're just normal cards in the game. The generic girls.
Recently they did a poll to know which are the most liked normal girls, and the three silhouettes correspond to the three winners. But considering µ's and Aqours are nine girls, it's rumored that the nine most voted girl will conform a new group. Which are the following:



The three winner girls are Emma, Shizuku and Kanata.

Yep they're all girls that are already in the game, will just have to wait what this perfect dream project will mean.

If it continues the trend of Love Live, first part of course is giving the preset "default" girls Seiyuu, then following up by giving a few singles/group songs, and THEN hit it off with an anime series for the characters.

I love me some Kanata. I just call her Sleepy-chan.

I'm kind of curious to see what it is now. It would definitely be cool if it did lead to some anime side project.

Though I am a little bummed. Kanata is my favorite of the no-names, easily, but I don't really care for any of the other top 9. No Maria, Sana or Akiru Sad Bummer.

The N girls are the poorest cards that you get in the mobile game. Looks like the N girls are going to get their revenge and overthrow µ's and Aqours. I cannot wait for more of this new project.

Yeah, similar for me. I'm curious too, and Koyuki and Shizuku would make my top 9, but half my favorite N girls are from Chitose, especially Ruu and Fumie, and no girls from that school made the cut.

Not to mention, thinking about a project that might feature Koyuki without Ryou, Coco without Yuuri, and Kanata without Haruka just feels weird...

Some people are panicking for no reason. This won't be a "Gen 3" - we're only 2 years into Aqours, which by the way still has a slew of content (2nd live, season 2, season 2 BD songs, etc). This will be a side project at best, maybe a voiced cameo or two in the anime, but not Aqours' replacement.
