Why has it taken Production I.G so long to produce B: The Beginning Succession?

Any and all anime series take a significant amount of time to produce, even for studios like Production I.G.

Since the release of B: The Beginning, Production I.G has worked on a further nine anime series, including the ongoing immensely popular volleyball series Haikyuu!!. With much of the studio’s manpower directed towards other projects, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the second season has taken so long to produce.
