Cameron is delaying the sequel because he wants the scripts, which he’s writing simultaneously, to be absolutely perfect.

The director explained:

“There’s a layer of complexity in getting the story to work as a saga across three films that you don’t get when you’re making a stand-alone film. We’re writing three simultaneously. And we’ve done that so that everything tracks throughout the three films. We’re not just going to do one and then make up another one and another one after that. And parallel with that, we’re doing all the design. So we’ve designed all the creatures and the environments.”

Makes sense to us!

While we’re disappointed by the delay, we know it will be worth the wait!
