final fantasy vii remake 2017.jpg

It's time to drag those dreams into reality: Final Fantasy VII Remake probably isn't launching this year. The project was originally announced at Sony's E3 press conference back in 2015, but aside from one gameplay trailer, we've seen very little of Cloud and the gang's high def revival.

In an interview with Famitsu, translated by Siliconera, director Tetsuya Nomura shares a tiny bit information on how the remake is coming along. "We're making steady progress on its production", Nomura states. "While we are indeed working on it, I think we'll have you guys wait a little longer for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake." We don't know about you, but to us, that sounds like both games still have a long way to go before they're ready for the market. "I do apologize for that, but we'll make up for it by making it into something that will meet expectations," Nomura continues.

Don't lose yourself to total despair just yet, though, as Nomura also says that he hopes to "show [Final Fantasy VII Remake's] progress at some event this year". E3, perhaps? We'd be up for that.

In any case, were you hoping that the remake would maybe launch this year? Put your materia away until further notice in the comments section below.
