'Kingdom Hearts 3' Rank 2016: Lack Of 'KH 3' Updates Causes Hype For Square Enix Game To Drop, Official Release Date Still Unknown

Fans were expecting that Disney and Square Enix will give them even just a tiny bit of information about "Kingdom Hearts 3" at E3 2016 but the company and developer remained tight-lip about it. Could the delay and lack of information be the reason why "Kingdom Hearts 3" is losing its popularity?

The delay was believed to make way for the "Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue" and to add hype to "Kingdom Hearts 3," but it seems like the plan of Square Enix has backfired this time. It is already confirmed that "Kingdom Hearts 2.8" Final Chapter Prologue is coming out worldwide in January 12, 2017. But according to the the "Kingdom Hearts 3" trailer, the third installment is "currently in development."
