The description of the Dragon Quest XI panel mentions that, one and a half years after the announcement, Director Yuji Horii will finally provide a follow-up. Looks like we’re finally getting some news. I wouldn’t count on a release date, but I’m always open to be surprised.

Dragon Quest XI was announced on July 28th, 2015 for PS4 and 3DS, while a Nintendo Switch version was recently confirmed. It still doesn’t have a firm release window for any platform.
