More proof that this game isn’t coming any time soon…
We still don’t know when Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming- in fact, we’ve only received 8 minutes of footage for the game ever since it was announced four years ago. Square Enix as a company is known for taking forever to pump out releases. And they’ve been diverting attention away from the game via a multitude of re-releases and side releases for the Kingdom Hearts franchise.
And now, we’ve another reason to worry about the game’s development status. In their financial briefing, as Square made a list of the games they plan on releasing for the upcoming financial year – that is to say, through to March 31, 2018 – Kingdom Hearts 3 was conspicuously missing (pointed out by Nirolak on NeoGAF). To be clear, even games that haven’t received an official announcement yet, such as Square’s project with Marvel, are listed- but Kingdom Hearts 3 is not.
This all but confirms that the game is, for now, a long time away. We don’t know when we’ll see it, and we don’t know whether or not it will even live up to the years of pent up anticipation people will have had for it by the time it ultimately does manage to release. Kingdom Hearts 3 is planned for PS4 and Xbox One.
