I can't give you any promise that your late response will be acknowledged.

Again, I can't give you any promise [for/about/on] that.

Is any of the above cases correct? I'm particularly asking about the preposition that comes after "give somebody a promise".

It should be promises because it's a countable noun.

Again, I can't give you any promises about that.

about and of collocate well with promise, but I don't see anything particularly wrong with the other two.

A sentence with promise as a verb

I can't promise you anything/it.

would be more common, though.
