Surely he can give his 90 day notice?

He was featured briefly on Monday night's Ride Along episode, in a spot that could have easily been edited out, for whatever that's worth.

I still don't think he can wrestle on TV elsewhere.  He needs to be granted a release.  That's why WWE has contracts.  I don't believe he can unilaterally say the contract is void and he can now appear elsewhere.  He can't be forced to work for WWE, but he can't work anywhere else either if they pay him his downside.  Didn't WCW do this with tons of guys and pay them to sit at home?

PWInsider thinks Neville may be on his way back:

While the expectation in recent weeks has been that former WWE Cruiserweight champion Neville was on his way out of World Wrestling Entertainment, sources within the company have told PWInsider.com that there have been recent positive discussions between Neville and the company.   Obviously, we will see if that is soon the case.

There is a belief among some in the company that talks have gone so well that Neville could actually be returning to action for WWE before the end of the month.  One source even believed Neville could be back as soon as this week, but PWInsider.com has (as of this writing) not been able to confirm that is the case. 
Neville quietly disappeared from 205 Live storylines last month amongst stories that he had walked out of Raw after balking to losing a match to Enzo Amore. 

PWInsider.com quickly debunked the walkout story as Neville was never even on the road that week.  We later reported in the Elite section that the idea that Neville had refused to put over Amore again was shot down, specifically because the two had become close friends and regularly socialized away from WWE events.  

WWE sources immediately denied that Neville had been released from the company, he was later removed from the 205 Live opening.    At that time, however, two different sources told PWInsider.com that Neville had pushed for a WWE release with the idea of leaving the company and building his name outside of it, similar to what Drew McIntyre did prior to his return to NXT.  

As we reported at the time, until Neville was actually released, there was always a chance that the two sides could come to terms, paving the way for his return to the company.  If what we are hearing is correct, that road has been paved.
Neville has been with the company since signing a WWE developmental deal in July 2012.

A year after walking out on WWE, Neville has finally returned to the ring under his old name PAC, quietly making an appearance in Dragon Gate where he teamed with Eita to defeat Shingo Takagi and BxB Hulk.  Neville primarily competed in Dragon Gate for years before signing with WWE.

It's a pretty uninspired comeback if you ask me.  You look at what Cody Rhodes did after his WWE release generating so much hype on social media and marketing himself as a hot free agent.  And then you have Neville who just goes back to his old name and his old company, which is the 4th biggest in Japan.  I find it hard to believe that if he played his cards right he couldn't have made a much bigger splash.

Give him a break he hardly had time to adjust to life outside of the WWE. Just wait to see what he does in 2020.

He should try and sign with New Japan.
