Microsoft have just released a new Azure certification on 16th July 2018. They have announced that this is because they have received a lot of feedback that the current Azure exams are to broad. Administrators would like more precise exams to reflect their Azure knowledge. They are also saying that the first 300 people to register get an 80% discount for the exam however the cut off point is on the 9th August 2018.

They have also said that this certification consists of two exams, the current 533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions and AZ-100: Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and Deployment. The other exam you need to take is the AZ-101: Microsoft Azure Integration and Security.

More information on the AZ-100 exam can be found here. Likewise more information on the AZ-101 exam can be found here.

If you have not already completed the 533 exam then Microsoft recommend you instead take the AZ-102:Microsoft Azure Administrator Certification Transition. More information can be found here.
