I doubt it. The game seems very early in development, like SE just hastily put the teaser together for E3. I don't think there's really any concrete details to unveil about it just yet.

It's been in conception stage for over 3 years. I think SE has done enough concepting and is ready to show KH3 to the world.

 

With KH3 and FFXV taking care of, All that remains is TWEWY2. And Nomura says he wants to do a TWEWY sequel. (well, he said it in a teasing way on a japanese radio)

Now, the only questions left are when will it be released and will it carry the tradition of coming out later for the rest of the world.

KH3 is being developed by Osaka staff, people who developed BBS and HD 1.5 Remix. Nomura's team is not developing it as of now.

I'm happy the Osaka team are making it. BBS and 3D are my favorite games of the series. Hopefully they can smoothly make the transition to console games.

Hmmm, I guess at this point the Osaka team can pretty much be called the Kingdom Hearts team. So I wonder if the the FFXV team will become the new Final Fantasy team, I honestly wouldn't mind this.
