Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura states that he may rethink worldwide releases for his games in the future, following the leak of the game. Kingdom Hearts 3 is one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2019, and there's plenty of reason that's the case. The previous numeric entry in the series, Kingdom Hearts 2, arrived on PlayStation 2 in 2005. This means that fans have waited 14 years for a true follow-up starring Sora and friends. There's no question that it's been a long time, and, truthfully, gamers in the west would have been a lot more disappointed if they had to wait much longer. ADVERTISING Still, this sense of waiting may be prolonged in the future in regards to projects being worked on by Tetsuya Nomura. As the creator of the Kingdom Hearts franchise and director of the third installment, Nomura expressed a sense of disappointment after Kingdom Hearts 3 leaked online well ahead of its launch. As it turns out, Nomura is already considering options on how to avoid these leaks (only four copies managed to be leaked ahead of time) - and one may include foregoing a simultaneous worldwide release in the future.

The biggest takeaway from the discussion was that his future projects may release first in other regions before eventually making their way to retailers around the globe. At the very least, this might be the case for physical game releases.
