Matrix Release Pushed Back[Monday, February 11th, 2002]
According to Cinescape, the reason why the next Matrix movie has been pushed back to 2003 is because AOL/TimeWarner, the company behind the Matrix will have too many successful film franchises for that year.
The Harry Potter sequel - The Chamber of Secrets and the second Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers are both coming out at the end of 2002 so have forced the studio to rethink its December 25 release date for the Matrix. Another push on the release date has seen the release date pushed further back from Spring 2003, the season of the original Matrix, to Summer 2003.
Filming is expected to finish in August, so a Summer 2003 seems like a feasable release date.
