It is speculated that Oda is either sick or having some sort of family issues which is why the mangaka decided to take an unexpected break. Here are more details on One Piece chapter 992 delay, new release date and reasons why Eiichiro Oda has taken a break.
One Piece Chapter 992 Release Date has been delayed by Eiichior Oda
One Piece Chapter 992 release date is currently set as Sunday, October 4 but that could be now delayed to one or two weeks. It means that One Piece 992 official English translation chapter will come out next Sunday, October 11 or the Sunday after that, October 18.
Weekly Shonen Jump unofficial account says that One Piece will enter a 2 weeks break for issues 44 and 45, resuming back in issue 46. It could be possible that One Piece 992 comes out on Friday, October 16 as two weeks break is usually cut out short by two days.
According to MANGA Plus, ONE PIECE would be entering a 2 weeks break for Issues #44 and #45, resuming back in Issue #46 that will be out on Friday 16th (Saturday 17th JST). There's no confirmation yet about this, so we should wait until we get an official statement. pic.twitter.com/DS9CXjorsq

Some of the fans are suspecting that Eiichiro Oda has been tested COVID-19 positive but nothing has been confirmed so far. Fans must wait will Thursday when One Piece chapter 992 spoilers will come out, if that doesn’t happen it means that the manga series is surely delayed.
One Piece Chapter 992 New Release Schedule and Spoilers
One Piece Chapter 992 release date gets delayed and if the manga comes out on October 16-18, it will postpone the entire schedule. Eiichiro Oda earlier said that he wanted One Piece chapter 1000 to come out before this year ends, but that seems unlikely at this point.
It is not that bad as long as Oda is healthy as one or two weeks break are not that bad. One Piece chapter 992 spoilers are not out and there are some unconfirmed leaks floating around the internet, but nothing can be confirmed at this point.
