As it turns out, the reason behind the lack of announcements about "Kingdom Hearts 3" is because Square Enix wants to focus on "Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" since it's going to premiere soon. So when fans hoped to learn more about "Kingdom Hearts 3" in E3 2016, they were left disappointed.

“We want to share as much as possible," "Kingdom Hearts 3" and "Kingdom Hearts 2.8" co-director Tai Yasue said. "We’re excited about Kingdom Hearts 3. But 2.8 we’re releasing globally at the beginning of December. We wanted to concentrate on that first. We want what’s best for the moment. We’re currently making 3 and 2.8 at the same time, but we wanted to concentrate on 2.8 right now.”
