We do not know yet. I'm sure once everything is settled down we will know an answer.

I wouldn't be surprised if it is though although I hope and wish its just delayed by a few years. The president did say it would take them 5 years at best to get back to where they once were or something like that.

Kinda wonder how they will pay those who are a part of the company since they cannot work on any big projects for a while. I was thinking maybe they might work on small projects or help other studios with animations and stuff? hmm

It would be totally fair if they cancelled it. It's not like there aren't more important things going on.
No, there's never too much madness.

Violet Evergarden Movie (2020) is getting a delay sadly, so chances for this have stuttered even further I imagine.

It's sad.. The studio deserved way better, and I was REALLY looking forward to this movie as I'm a huge fan of the Free! series... It really is a shame... I would legit give everything I have to see the studio running again

Not cancelled. Most probably delayed just like Violet Evergarden.

Yes, it's coming! Exact date has not been decided just yet but it's confirmed that the staff is working hard to release this!

It'll be titled "Free! See you in the future!".

Sounds like the end of the franchise. It's been great.

Yeah, it's been a great series so far and it does sound like the perfect title to sign off with for one thing but until we get official word on this, I wouldn't rule out another installment into the franchise.

Yeah it wouldn't be too farfetched for KyoAni to milk it to its death. I remember thinking season 2 was the end but here we are with a 3rd season and more movies lol.

I totally agree, it's difficult to let go of such an illustrious franchise when it has managed to pool in so much money and fame I imagine.

As long as there's a craving for hot boys, then this Anime is eventually going to come out.

As long as Kisumi is part of it, I don't mind torturing myself with the rest of the annyoing maggots of the cast. It would be nice if Aki also made a comeback.

Kisumi is pretty sexy, but I still prefer Makoto.

To add to this, more word from the Production Committee:

"平素より、「Free!」シリーズを応援いただきありがとうございます。

2020年「夏」公開を発表しておりました『「Free!」完全新作劇場版』につきまして、諸般の事情により、公開時期を調整させていただくこととなりました。

しかしながら、監督を始めスタッフ一同は、皆様のご期待に応えるべく懸命に制作に励んでおります。楽しみにお待ちいただいていたところではございますが、今しばらくお時間をいただけますと幸いです。
新たな公開時期の発表、及び、公開を迎えられました折には、どうぞ皆様お誘いあわせの上、作品をお楽しみください。

今後も『Free!』シリーズの続報にご期待いただけますこと、心よりお願い申し上げます"

Google Translation:

Thank you for supporting the “Free!” Series.

The release date of “Free!”, Which was announced in 2020 “Summer”, will be adjusted due to various reasons.

However, the entire staff, including the director, is working hard to meet your expectations. I'm looking forward to seeing you, but I'd appreciate your time.
When the new release date is announced and when it is released, please invite everyone to enjoy the work.

I look forward to your continued support for the “Free!” Series.

I actually have the good idea when it'll be released.
Hint: search where 19th FINA World Aquatics Championships take place and when ;)
I believe this is originally the date in which the TV season after this movie will air, but the sad 'incident' happen to the studio.

God, I'm glad that movie wasn't finally canceled.

Imagine 2020 Tokyo Olympic with Haru, Rin (Free cast) and characters from Haikyuu in Japan team. It would be the best collab in anime universe

I'm glad to hear this is still going to happen. I just got around to watching (binging) this series, and when I saw that "See you in 2020" at the end of s3 my heart broke all over again.

After the Tokyo Olympics is postponed to summer next year, I believe the film will also released around that time too. And what's more, FINA World Championships which will be held in Fukuoka (Japan) and FINA Master World Masters which will be held in Kyushu (also Japan) are postponed to spring 2022, which I believe is the broadcast season for the 4th TV season, in contrast to previous 3 seasons that started broadcasting in summer.

It was postponed. The website said that if it weren't postponed, it would have come out today (July 5th) in Japanese theaters.
Though there is no new release date yet now.
