Through the Kingdom Hearts Twitter account, Tetsuya Nomura tweeted out that development for Kingdom Hearts III has wrapped up. This promptly suggests that there will be no more delays to the game’s release, which is scheduled for 29 January 2019.
The tweet itself doesn’t actually say much else, and even the point on no more delays is largely speculation on our part. But with the confirmation, that development of the game is done, the only hurdle left is the final one, which is the supply chain.
I'm proud to unveil an extended version of the trailer that's been playing in NA cinemas. And guess what? We've wrapped up development of #KingdomHearts III!
If you haven't had the chance yet, now would be a good time to prep by playing 1.5+2.5 & 2.8. See you next month! – Nomura pic.twitter.com/NvZYBut3WI

As a game, Kingdom Hearts III has been plagued with delays. The game was first teased back in E3 2013, while development of the game is said to have started way back in 2006. Back in 2017, the game was initially scheduled for a 2018 release, before it was hit by another delay.
Fingers crossed, Kingdom Hearts III is only two months away. And as Nomura said in the tweet, now’s as good a time as any to finish your playthroughs of Kingdom Hearts 1.5, 2.5 and 2.8.
