Joe Abercrombie posts an update, and provides more details on the coming new First Law world trilogy:

Progress Report August ’16 | Joe Abercrombie

As I’ve probably said before, this is a set of books taking place maybe 25-30 years after the end of Last Argument of Kings, in a world moving rapidly forward into the turmoil of early industrialisation, set mainly in the Union (and the North), featuring some old friends in the background while focussing mostly on a new cast, and perhaps picking up some threads left over from the First Law trilogy a little more directly than the standalone books have.


Anyway, long story short, this is planned to be a trilogy of nine parts – three books each of three parts – and I’ve drafted the first and am tackling the second – so getting towards half way through a really rough first draft of the first book.
Sounds great, it'd be awesome if Glokta is still in it. I imagine Logan would be too old at this point.
