I am not sure how many people have been playing with Microsoft Lists, but I have been waiting along time for this functionality. I am wondering if anyone else is having problems creating a calendar view.
I viewed this video created by Microsoft (https://youtu.be/plshQSoe_OY?t=666) and when go to 11:06 it shows the ability to create a calendar view, but when I am on my tenant there is no such capability.
Is this something that has been held back?

Do you have any new on the availability date for the Calendar view in Microsoft Lists?

According to the roadmap, it looks like this month (CY October 2020).

@Mike Dumka @Susan Hanley We have the ability to create a Calendar view now. The "Create New View" option shows up in Lists, but not when viewing the list in SharePoint or Teams. Once created, the calendar itself can be viewed in Lists and SharePoint, but not in Teams (it shows as a list...not a calendar). I made a "website" tab in our Teams channel as a workaround that allows us to view the calendar, but if you click on a calendar entry the details view then shows the SharePoint comments instead of our Teams comments about that entry. That's unfortunate. Hoping Lists in Teams gets updated so it can also show the calendar view and that the details view shows the Teams comments. Also hope they build in a way to do some conditional formatting to change colors of the calendar entries instead of having every calendar entry the identical style.

@Mike Dumka - I have been referencing the same video, same timestamp - as the feature we need.
I am currently seeing the same as @msullivan-csulb in our Education Tenant - disappointed the views do not transfer to Teams.
The image attached from the Lists Roadmap clearly shows us colour categories in the Calendar View...
I think the marketing department are ahead of the development team - again...

@joesstlouis1, I watched your video but my items drop-down menu does not have a Create New View option. I am only able to save, edit, or format views. How do I get the Create New View option? Without that, will it be possible to get the new Calendar view?

there is no option to colorcode the calendar-items in the calendar view. Even not in the classic options.
I would recomment to use the SPFX sample for modern Calendar and use a modern webpart in a page to use Color codes. Here is the example: sp-dev-fx-webparts/samples/js-modern-calendar at master · pnp/sp-dev-fx-webparts · GitHub
