Square Enix puts the brakes on ‘Kingdom Hearts 3’ release date hype
One of the most anticipated games of the decade isn’t coming out when we thought.
The voice of an iconic Disney character may have goofed on this one.
Fans starved for information about the next game’s release have reached out to some of the voice actors involved in the epically popular franchise. Bill Farmer, who voices Goofy and Pluto in the Kingdom Hearts series, recently caused an uproar with a response to a fan’s tweet asking if he had any idea when KH3 would be released. Farmer’s tweet, which has since been deleted, said that, as far as he knew, it would come out this year.
@faruqajidagba I can only report on Goofy and Pluto

In subsequent tweets, he told fans that he was finished recording the script for KH3, but he remained mum about actual details of the game and the worlds to which Sora, Donald, and Goofy would travel.
As word spread online, people became convinced that KH3 would see the light of day in 2015. At least, they did until Square Enix—the company that produces the Kingdom Hearts series—put the kibosh on it.
Farmer did some backtracking as well.
The release date for Kingdom Hearts Three has not been announced yet!

Is it possible that KH3 could see a 2015 release? Of course. But if so, Square Enix isn’t ready to confirm it. Until then, all we can do is play the old games for nostalgia’s sake, simultaneously laughing and cringing at how accurate this is.
