Kingdom Hearts 3 will offer a conclusion to the conflicts present throughout the core games, but not the overall series, game director Tetsuya Nomura told the L.A. Times.
Speaking about the game, which is currently in development, Nomura explained that Kingdom Hearts 3 isn't necessarily part of a "trilogy." However, it will wrap up story elements present since the first game, released in 2002.
"As a core game, this is finally the third, and 10 years have passed," Nomura said. "I couldn't call this a trilogy. There have been so many spinoffs. In Kingdom Hearts 3, the battles that the characters have been fighting for the past 10 years will come to a conclusion. That is the plan. But the series will continue. Only the particular enemy they have been fighting the past 10 years will come to an end."
Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced during Sony's E3 2013 press conference. The game will be released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, though an official date has not been set. Few details about the upcoming title have been announced.
