The folks over at Variety have been able to get a statement from the studio, read it below:

In coordination with filmmakers, Universal has decided to release Jurassic Park 4 at a later date giving the studio and filmmakers adequate time to bring audiences the best possible version of the fourth installment in Universal’s beloved franchise.  We could not be more excited about the vision that Colin Trevorrow has created for this film, and we look forward to watching as he and the producers create another great chapter in this franchise’s storied history.

Despite the somber nature of some of the tweets, it looks as if Jurassic Park IV is still all systems go, but it will just be at  a later date than we were hoping.  Variety also noted that Universal had reached out to Bryce Dallas Howard and David Oyelowo for lead roles, but that will have to be put on hold as well.  Keep an eye out for more information regarding JP4.
