The official Attack on Titan season 2 release date has been revealed after the July 2014 rumor got debunked by Wit Studios themselves.
In a report by the AirHerald, it has been reported that the Attack on Titan season 2 release date on July 2016 was just a byproduct of an April Fools prank that went out of hand and that the Attack on Titan season 2 release date is actually on 2015.
The website iDigitalTImes has reported that Wit Studios hasn't even started on the animation work for the Attack on Titan season 2 but they're focusing on the OVA to be bundled with the manga.
iDigitalTimes has claimed that:
"The truth is, there's a good reason why Wit Studios isn't working on the "Attack on Titan" season 2 premiere just yet. Even after just one series, the show has covered a pretty substantial portion of the manga-a little more than half of it, in fact. The key words there are 'a little more.' It stands to reason that the second series will cover just about as much ground as the first series. And that means, if it came out right now, the anime would pass the material in the books."
And they're right as JapNation AniManga has reported that an interview with a representative from Wit Studios, the rep has told them that they haven't started working on the Attack on Titan season 2 but they will soon as them starting now would lead to conflicts with the manga and that they would have to rush the production of the OVA's.
But there is a silver lining to all of this as JapNation AniManga asked the Wit Studios representative if they can give an estimate to the Attack on Titan season 2 release date and they gave one, as the rep told them that fans can at least expect the Attack on Titan season 2 release date to be on August 2015.
Attack on Titan fans will still get something this year, in the form of a DVD and Blu-ray release of season 1, part 2, on sale September 23rd.
An Attack on Titan live action movie is also in the works, and is just starting filming for a planned release date in Summer 2015.
