One of the chief officers of developer MAGES and Robotics; Notes DaSH writer, Chiyomaru Shikura, recently replied to a fan on Twitter, revealing that a potential anime adaptation for the aforementioned game is unlikely to happen.
For those unaware, this game is the direct sequel to the Science Adventure visual novel Robotics; Notes. And Robotics; Notes received an anime adaptation, so the prospect of DaSH seemingly not getting one may seem odd. However, DaSH is a… weird experience, for lack of a better term.
The main canonical story route it follows is arguably lacking in meaningful events, and a good chunk of the game’s significance arises from side routes that technically don’t actually occur.
I’m sure if the team really wanted to, a Robotics; Notes DaSH anime could happen one way or the other, as it would undoubtedly be a less strenuous exercise than a potential Anonymous; Code anime adaption. Still, I personally don’t see them going through the trouble.
The initial tweet sharing this revelation from Chiyomaru is viewable below:

け ど 可能性 は 低 い か な。

Regarding this, the official website states that the fictitious waifu, Seira Orgel, will not adorn her lingerie costume DLC for the North American and European releases.
Chaos: Head Noah can be seen as the director’s cut version of the original Chaos; Head which was a PC-only release in Japan. Noah added character routes and released for several consoles in Japan. Unfortunately, no edition of Chaos; Head has ever received an official localization.
Chaos; Child is a visual novel taking place 6 years after Chaos; Head Noah, focusing on a new group of protagonists. This title did receive an official English localization from publisher PQube on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and by publisher Spike Chunsoft on PC via Steam.
