The release date for the highly anticipated final installment of Kingdom Hearts has been announced at the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra Concert in Los Angeles. Kingdom Hearts III will be released on January 29, 2019!
At the Orchestra concert, the release date was revealed with a trailer that featured new Disney characters and revealed more pieces on the story. Also, Nomura said that they’ll be showing more during E3.
Regarding the delay, here is a statement from Nomura from the official Kingdom Hearts Twitter.
We’ve announced the release day for KINGDOM HEARTS III ahead of E3 at the KINGDOM HEARTS Orchestra -World Tour-. I’m sorry that we’re asking for a little more time than initially planned. Please look forward to other information, including a few trailers at E3. Thank you – Nomura

This is a bit later than the anticipated 2018 release date Square Enix originally planned (or had hoped) for the game to be released, but one can only speculate why it was pushed to 2019. It could be from the feedback the team received at the Kingdom Hearts Premiere event they had a while ago, but we may never know.
