Square Enix hopes to share Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 news in 2022, producer Yoshinori Kitase said during a livestream this morning.
The tease came from Kitase during the Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier’s first official livestream (via Games Jouhou), where the Square Enix producer confirmed they really want to share the next part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake this year in celebration of its 25th anniversary.
“We’ll probably be able to tell you the continuation of the Final Fantasy VII Remake this year,” Kitase said. “I’m sure we’ll be able to give you more information this year.”
Then Tetsuya Nomura replied with a joke, “It’s not good to be inarticulate (laughs).”
Kitase then continued, “This year, the 25th anniversary has begun, and I’d like to work together with everyone to make Final Fantasy VII more exciting, so I’d like to give you more information this year, so please wait with anticipation!”
The original Final Fantasy VII was released back on January 31st, 1997 in Japan for the PlayStation.
While we’ve known the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a multi-part series, the first entry had three co-directors and was originally co-developed with CyberConnect2 before development was brought in-house. The second game will have one director – Naoki Hamaguchi, and will likely be at least three games long.
The latest version of its remake, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, has been available since June 2021 on PlayStation 5 and the original Final Fantasy VII Remake is available on PlayStation 4.
