No news on a release date but saw this pop up on Twitter when I searched Shin Ultraman to see if there was any news:

A Shin Ultraman figure by Dynaction is dated for a September release in Japan (October in the US) and it looks like it was announced this month. While things could change an announcement like this hints towards the filmmakers intention is still to release it in Japan during the summer.

Again no real news. Unless you want the figure.

EDIT UPDATE:

With all this work Tsuburaya Productions is doing with Netflix I won't be surprised (though saddened cause I really do want to see this in a movie theater) if Shin Ultraman goes straight to Netflix in the rest of the world outside Japan. No mention of the Anno/Higuchi but Netflix is now making an animated Ultraman movie.

Plot is: The film will follow Ken Sato, a superstar baseball player who returns to Japan to become the latest hero to carry the mantle of Ultraman. His plans go awry, however, when he is compelled to raise a newborn kaiju monster — the offspring of his greatest enemy — as his own child. Sato will also have to contend with his relationship with his estranged father and the schemes of the Kaiju Defense Force.
