Given such success, one would expect a future Anime by Studio Pierrot.

Adopted from namesake Novel by Masashi Kishimoto and Jun Esaka, the manga of Naruto: The Story of Sasuke is already among the most read of MangaPlus. As Boruto: Naruto Next Generations struggles to repeat the success of its predecessor, Studio Pierrot may consider adapting the work's story into an anime.

The situation is unlikely to change in the short term and a good way to reignite interest in the community would be to adapt Sasuke Retsuden's story into the anime.

However, this hypothesis should probably be rejected. Indeed, Sasuke Retsuden is takes place between the end of Naruto Shippuden and the beginning of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. This means that the story of the work has now progressed too far and it wouldn't make much sense to repeat events that happened years before. Barring a flashback saga or an OVA, Sasuke Retsuden's anime adaptation seems like an impossible idea. The truth won't come out for a few days, when the jump party.
