They cite his absence from the previews we've seen so far - and from posters for the movie.

Also, it's noted that he was brash and reckless, like Anakin before him.

Well, I think there is one other possible explanation for the first of those two items - and that it is more likely. As for the second - the prequel trilogy was intended to add some suspense about Luke in this way to the original trilogy (or, more to the point, make Yoda's misgivings more plausible)..

Instead of Luke becoming another Darth Vader, I'm inclined to see him becoming...

another Obi-Wan Kenobi.

So he may spend some time all transparent, glowy, and sparkly in the new movie, telling the new generation of Jedi to "Remember the Force" and so on.

Of course, the death of Luke Skywalker would be such a dramatic moment that it is likely to happen *onscreen* during that movie rather than being alluded to as in the past... if that is indeed what's planned.
