It is speculated that the game will likely be featured at Disney’s own D23 Expo, as Breathe Cast reports. However, the D23 Expo hardly falls in winter. Another speculation is that it might likely come out at the Sony PlayStation Experience, which will be released in December. The released could also be done online, though given how Disney and even Square Enix go for big events, that might be unlikely.
Ecumenical News states that fans might still ask about the game on a panel discussion with Tai Yasue, co-director for “Kingdom Hearts.” The Q&A will mainly be about the gameplay and walkthrough for “Kingdom Hearts 2.8” but fans will likely bring up the issue in that event.
