Just read this article on MAL:
According to Monthly Gundam A magazine, a new Gundam series was announced. The title has not been given yet. The main Mobile Suit is RX-78-7, the unknown 7th RX-78 MS. The story takes place in UC0081 and it's about the battles between a federal special team "Phantom Sweep" and the remaining Zion "Invisible Knights".
The mechanic designer is Katoki Hajime ("Mobile Suit Gundam Wing", "Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ") and the character designer is Suzuki Ryuuya (Mechanic art director of "GaoGaiGar"). This is a special project to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Gundam series.

All those fans that were hoping for a Gundam Unicorn series are probably greatly disappointed. Personally, I'm excited for it but I wonder....doesn't UC have enough series in its timeline? I think it'd be cool if they did a new series in AC or even FC. Also I think the Gundam looks kinda plain. Though the RX-78 is one of my fav Gundam designs this one just seems kinda meh.....
