The release date for John Wick 4 is May 21st, 2021, this was confirmed back in August.

The Matrix 4
There’s still not much known about the plot of the fourth Matrix movie, although its cast is growing. So far, Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith are the only original returning actors. Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II are also starring.
And earlier this week, it was confirmed that Frozen II and Mindhunter star Jonathan Groff is joining the cast.
John Wick: Chapter 4
Lance Reddick plays Continental Hotel concierge Charon in the John Wick films. He gave a John Wick: Chapter 4 filming update –
“Last I heard, there wasn’t a script yet but that was a month ago. I know they’re working on it but part of the problem in terms of scheduling now is that Keanu signed on to do The Matrix 4 and he has the new Bill & Ted coming up.”
“He has three franchises he’s juggling so I’m just not sure if he’s going to do The Matrix 4 or John Wick next.”
So there you have it, The Matrix 4 and John Wick: Chapter 4 are both set for release on the same day in 2021.
