In case you followed the Kingdom Hearts III information over the weekend, you most likely have heard the allegation that the game’s launch date will soon be announced at E3.
This was sparked by a only tweet in Western from a user who appeared to signify this launch timing. It was picked up and confused as an true report of an official announcement. This kind of rumors tend to propagate virally, because it usually happens, and theyre tricky to stop.
It was clear to us that the author wasn’t in attendance, after we checked out that the tweet, and he seemed to be only imagining that since the release date was not disclosed at D23 Expo, it was probably going to come at E3.
To be able to get to the bottom of the matter, DualShockers reached out to Square Enix, which confirmed our suspicion: there was no mention of a release date time in the show.
The official information concerning the launch timing stays the “2018” in the end of the trailer. Its worth mentioning that this doesn’t imply that E3 is revealed in by a release date in June is impossible, but simply that Square Enix didn’t announce it, so when it really comes we ll have to wait and see.
