During the event dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the series, Square ENIX officially introduced Kingdom Hearts 4 among several other projects related to Kingdom Hearts in the trailer. Announcement of the fourth recording in the series, relatively fast on the heels for the last record, has become a community.
Several sources close to the project and other sites report that Kingdom Hearts 4 is currently being developed on Unreal Engine 4, but will be ported to Unreal Engine 5 . However, at the moment there was nothing official from Square Enix. Kingdom Hearts 3 was developed on Unreal Engine 4, and Unreal Engine 5 was released on April 5, 2022 after the first time was presented in May 2020.
We hope that the acquaintance of the developers team with Unreal Engine will not allow the game to be postponed, as it was with its predecessor. Kingdom Hearts 3 years stuck in the developing hell, and the decision to use Unreal Engine 4 has been made more than a year of development. But since rumors about transferring on Unreal Engine 5 are relatively simple, many fans hope.
