It mentions "for the HD development of Kingdom Hearts games" which is an interesting way to put it. I wonder if they mean more remakes or if this really is the next one.

Even though we don’t know much about the details of this hiring, this is still the best news I’ve heard all day! We will just have to wait and see, but I’m excited just hearing that they’re hiring for the future of the series! Here’s hoping for some more exciting news within the next few years!

I seriously hope this is not a remake or remaster... We've honestly had enough of those... time to keep moving forward and either finish explaining the origin stories of the remaining Org members that we've still no clue of their backgrounds (i.e. Luxord and Demyx) and/or keep going with KH4 please...

I wouldn't really mind a KH1.5, 2.5 and KHDDD remake with UE4 graphics, but I'm sure they're focusing on the game before KH4 now

God, I’ll be 26 years old by then. I always joked that this series would still be making games by the time I’m an old man, but it looks more and more like that’ll be a reality.

so is no one going to point out that this is for ps4 and xbox one. this means that it will probably come out before them (so around summer or fall next year)

Could be a console version of Union X if it has to be a remake of anything. But I just think people are putting to much emphasis on the HD part and assuming its remake just because od that.

This is such terrific and exciting news! Thank you so much for updating us on this, KHWaterBlock!

Gahhh, the hype commences! I, for one, am very excited to see what the next Kingdom Hearts title will be! I think this may be that in between game Nomura mentioned in an interview. Or was it on the KHIII Ultimania? Anyways, he mentioned something along the lines of there being one more game before Kingdom Hearts IV. So perhaps this is the one? Cuz I believe that IV would come out as the series 20th Anniversary game, but that's just my thinking.

Anyways though, I'm super excited!
