The information comes from Teruzane Utada, Hikaru’s father and manager, who responded to a fan asking for some follow-up from a 2013 tweet when the father/manager said that her involvement in Kingdom Hearts III was undecided at hte time.
Not only did he confirm that she’ll indeed be back for Kingdom Hearts III, but he also confirmed that they’ve already begun working on it.
Update: Teruzane Utada has updated with a correction to his earlier statement. Again:
