Kingdom Hearts 4 PS5

Kingdom Hearts IV will grace PS5 boxes next year, according to the increasingly reliable online tipster Daniel Richtman (DanielRPK). The TV and film leaker posted to his Patreon that he's heard about a 2025 release date for Kingdom Hearts IV, just days after his claim Sonic Frontiers 2 is in development was backed up by another reliable insider in Midori. The rumour may suggest we'll see more of the Square Enix title later in 2024 after two years of radio silence since its reveal.

The publisher has held such a tight grip on official details that the fourth entry isn't even confirmed for PS5 yet, though the chances of it skipping Sony's current-gen system are slim. For now, all we know is it's running on Unreal Engine 5, with all other chatter being speculation based on the announcement trailer.

Kingdom Hearts fans have traditionally had to wait vast stretches of time between the games' reveal and eventual release, with Kingdom Hearts III taking six years to launch after its E3 2013 trailer was shared alongside Final Fantasy XV. Are you anticipating a Kingdom Hearts IV launch next year? Cling on to hope in the comments below.
