This power form was edited as it is the Keyblade from a world that hasn’t been released yet, so it has changed into a hammer shape. — Kingdom Hearts (@KINGDOMHEARTS) October 27, 2016
As such, fans couldn't help but speculate as to other details about the development of "Kingdom Hearts 3" and its release date.
One such speculation is that the release date for "Kingdom Hearts 3" might be around 2017 at the earliest, according to PC Advisor.

No matter what, fans were definitely more than delighted to have gotten more news and details about "Kingdom Hearts 3" despite the lack of any confirmation regarding its release date.
