It's called Fleet School, apparently.

In a recent interview with Listener, ‘Ender’s Game’ author Orson Scott Card revealed that he’s writing a brand new ‘Ender’s Game’ sequel, titled ‘Fleet School’. According to Card, ‘Fleet School’ will be “the direct kids-in-space YA sequel to ‘Ender’s Game’.” This means that ‘Fleet School’ will fall after ‘Ender’s Game’ and before ‘Ender in Exile’ within the context of the Enderverse. [Edit: Many fans are speculating that 'Fleet School' may be the sequel Summit/Lionsgate plans to make if the first film does well.] ‘Fleet School’ (the novel) does not yet have a release date.

Card also reconfirms that he’s writing ‘Shadows Alive‘, which is the long-anticipated novel which will tie-in the Speaker series and Shadow series. Read more about Card’s upcoming books, his views on the movie, and more here.

Edit: Aaron Johnston shares that he has not been asked to co-author a book titled ‘Fleet School’. Maybe the title of this book has changed. Maybe he has been asked to co-author a different book.

Anyone know anything else about this?

I'm quite excited! Also, given that every time OSC starts writing an Ender book, it turns in to AT MINIMUM 2 books, I think we could be looking at more than one [Smile] .

It sounds like something he's doing specifically with the hopes of a sequel to the movie. He didn't really write too many books about Ender as a child post-EG, unfortunately.

I don't really know how it will tie into EG, since the war is essentially over at the end. I'd be curious to hear OSC talk more about it.

If the first movie does well, I wish they'd pull the trigger on a Speaker for the Dead adaptation, but that's going to be a hard business decision to make since the book is set so long after Ender's Game and would make it difficult to retain any of the stars involved in this first film as a result. Not exactly ideal franchise material. Adapting the Shadow books would be an odd transition too since it would essentially go from alien science fiction to geopolitical terrorism thriller and political narrative.
