According to creator Tetsuya Nomura, Kingdom Hearts 3 will not be the last game in the series.
Speaking with the LA Times, Nomura denied that the series is a triology, “There was never a plan. As a core game, this is finally the third, and ten years have passed,” he said.
“In Kingdom Hearts 3, the battles that the characters have been fighting for the past ten years will come to a conclusion. That is the plan. But the series will continue. Only the particular enemy they have been fighting the past ten years will come to an end.”
Nomura also commented on his working relationship with Disney.
“What world is available for the title is an important question. The counterpart that I’ve been working with at Disney the past ten years is the same person,” he said.
“We have very heated discussions about this franchise, and we’ve done that for the past ten years, but we have a steady relationship.”
Kingdom Hearts 3 is headed to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but currently, no release date is known.
