Kingdom Hearts 4: a clue hidden in Nomura's 20th anniversary message?

Kingdom Hearts 4

When it comes to Kingdom Hearts you often have to rely on bizarre theories, because these have a very good chance of being real, so it is no surprise that many see a clue about Kingdom Hearts 4 hidden in a recent message from Tetsuya Nomura, the director, on the occasion of the celebrations. for the 20th anniversary.

The Kingdom Hearts 20th anniversary celebration event is currently underway, complete with a physical and in-person party, and right within this a message has emerged written by Nomura for the occasion.

The message itself is very generic and talks about the whole series and what it meant for the author and the players, but what is attracting the attention of fans is a positioned "x", apparently at random, right in the middle of the text, with no particular meaning compared to the rest of the message.

However, we know well how the details are hardly placed at random in this series, therefore according to some this x would refer to its transliteration according to the symbolism used by the series, that is to the number "4". This could therefore be a reference to Kingdom Hearts 4, a first vague mention coming directly from Nomura.

Another clue would be hidden in another artwork published also on the occasion of the 20th anniversary, the one reported in the tweet below . The image seems to contain 4 spaces for as many drawings, presumably referring to the main chapters of the series. One of these is vacant and suggests it may be filled soon by the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 4.

That a new chapter is planned for the series is obviously not a mystery, but so far no one has ever spoken clearly about Kingdom Hearts 4, so any reference to this is a novelty, although in this case the question is really too vague. In recent days, we had also seen a 20th anniversary sketch shared by Nomura, waiting to hear about the future of the series.
