I think that after this interview, this scenario seems to be very likely:
Didn't Nomura say that Osaka was already working on the next game in the KH3 ultimania only to backtrack later on?
If the next game is announced in 2022, it'll probably release within the same year too.
I'm so against new "films". Kingdom hearts is a game franchise, for god sake. In collections I think it is a little more okay but still not ideal. (yes, I also hate the Disney+ series rumour. hoping it isn't true)
I always remember and miss the times when nomura said he didn't really wanted KH in any other media, because if he wanted to tell a new story, he'd just make a new game.
Gameplay is literally the most important thing about the game itself lol. What am I even reading here?
Your personal preference on gameplay =/= everyone's personal preference on gameplay.
Thing is though, creatives change their minds all the time on these sorts of things because the ideas they have now probably don't work with the methods they believed in back then. You would think KHUX and KHDR wouldn't be gacha phone games either when you think about the KH series, but they exist. There's also only so many people in Square that are designated to handle KH games and even more so, there's only so many things Nomura can focus on before things start getting sloppy.
A hypothetical D+ series would be practical in a lot of ways, especially in terms of actually getting the content out. It can cover a lot of plot points in a short amount of time, and it's easy for most people to access. Dark Road could've been a fully realized console KH game, but because KH3 is supposed to be the end of the Dark Seeker saga, the idea was shelved until the UX team came to him about it. We don't know what a D+ KH series would even be, so that's a factor. It's not like they'd make Verum Rex a Disney Plus series instead of a game (if Nomura actually did this though... lmaoooooo that man is insane, and I'd have to dip from the internet for a while), so super important stories would have their own games most likely.

I think the standard for future side-games should be a "secret episode" included on the disc. Chain of Memories did it right, and that should be what all the side games aspire to. Especially given how many characters we have now, it would make sense to try and cover everyone as much as possible.I still think that it won't be as long as we think til we hear an announcement on the Kingdom Hearts Disney + series. If the rumors are correct, I expect maybe we will hear some kind of announcement in the winter of next year or possibly at the next D23 event. As for games, I think a Verum Rex game will be coming in 2022. What would the odds be that Square Enix decides to put another game besides Verum Rex on the disc? We could maybe get a game about the Master of Masters.
