Games such as Batman: Arkham Knight and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End have been advertised as the last of the series. As for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, we may see more games after that comes out.
Nomura said: “The discussion of the end of Kingdom Hearts has never come up between me and Disney, so I don’t know what their intentions are. But while creating Kingdom Hearts, with each generation I think to myself ‘This should be something that can’t be accomplished by just Disney.’
It has to be something uniquely Kingdom Hearts. So it’s a matter of how long can I keep creating for Kingdom Hearts! I don’t know if the fans would enjoy it as much if it was just Disney, if it wasn’t a combination of Disney and my own creativity.”
He has some interesting words about the franchise as a whole. Kingdom Hearts will forever stay both a Square Enix and Disney property. Nomura feels the series won’t be the same if Disney did it on its own or vice versa.
Kingdom Hearts 3 will be out for PS4 and Xbox One sometime in the near future. The release date is speculated to be in 2017 since Final Fantasy XV is out this year.
