The films will be called ID Forever Part One and ID Forever Part Two, according to an interview by Film Starts (translated by Bleeding Cool).
Roland Emmerich - who will co-direct with Dean Devlin - revealed that the film will be shot in 2D and converted into 3D.
The filmmaker also revealed that he is unhappy with the current quality of 3D cameras.
Devlin has promised that the sequels have a "worthy concept", after a previous attempt to follow up the 1996 movie was scrapped.
The original Independence Day movie will be released in 3D on July 3, 2013.
