Warner Bros. is moving pretty fast with the potential future of The Conjuring franchise. In addition to the Annabelle spin-off, we have a release date for the direct sequel to James Wan's 2013 film.
The Conjuring 2 is currently scheduled for October 23, 2015. With that weekend, it is expected to directly compete with the assumed sixth Paranormal Activity installment. Warner Bros. currently has a slot reserved for an untitled horror film on October 3rd of this year, so some are speculating on if that might be Annabelle. It was announced as a VOD release, but with the success of The Conjuring they might decide to put it in theaters after all.
James Wan has departed from the franchise after the first film, but the sequel is being written by Carey and Chad Hayes.
EDIT - Universal confirmed the October 2014 slot is not for Annabelle.
