However, it is now tagged for the 2022 release.
What will happen in John Wick: Chapter 4?
John Wick’s character as an assassin “Baba Yaga” is at the center of a tumultuous full of action profile. In Parabellum, John Wick makes his exit from New York City on the grounds of ‘ex-communication,’ as the High Table declares. John Wick shoots a top member of this world-controlling group of assassins. However, he returns to shoot his friend, Winston, who double-crosses Wick to please the High Table and shoots him in the chest. Bowery King saves him, and together they pledge to seek revenge against the High Table.
While any plot leads for the upcoming chapter are not available as of now, but it is expected to pick the hanging plot trails of the previous chapter. Hence, it is likely that the plot will continue Bowery King and John Wick’s endeavor to bring the High Table on its knees. Wick’s enemies, as of now, do not know that he is alive. Wick is likely to return as a covert assassin before the game comes to the forefront and shooting and full-fledged action begins once again.
