The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu included a large spread with the New Year’s wishes from many Japanese developers, and some of them included inevitable teases.
Compile Heart mentions that it has many things in the pipeline, and for the Neptunia series 2020 is a year we should pay attention to.
GungHo Online Entertainment’s Kazuki Morishita mentions that in 2020 he’d like to finally launch Ninjala.
Game Freak’s developers will face new challenges in the new year after releasing Pokemon Sword & Shield.
Koei Tecmo plans to announce a “special new title” in 2020, so they hope everyone will stay tuned for that.
As usual, you should keep in mind that the Japanese language does not make any grammatical distinction between singular and plural, so when you see a “new title” it could mean “new titles” unless the context indicates differently.
Spike Chunsoft is going to be aggressive in 2020, and they’re also planning various things for the 10th anniversary of Danganronpa. This was echoed by Too Kyo Games (the studio formed by multiple Spike Chunsoft veterans including the creator, character designer, and composer of the Danganronps series) explaining that they would like do something in collaboration with Spike Chunsoft which will convey the feeling of a reunion with the fans.

Furyu has unannounced original games in the works, so fans should look forward to their reveal.
Bandai Namco will announce games on new platforms (likely meaning next-gen) and host its first Bandai Namco Entertainment Festival.
