It seems to keep getting delayed and updates aren't posted very often.  This is a critical feature that is missing so we don't have to keep creating more teams just so managers of a department can have conversations and files private from the rest of the team.

Private channels are under development and we realize the importance of getting this feature out ASAP.  We are working to make the experience a good one and when we have a date to share, we will let the community know.  

I think this is the highest user voice out there, and I've seen it raised about a dozen times in this AMA alone. Whilst I can't say for Microsoft, I have a feeling it'll be earlier than later in 2019. It'll certainly be a game changer for governance and stopping that Teams sprawl
Hoping to see a more specific timeline for this as it was announced as an upcoming feature at Ignite this year. Looking forward to it!
