There's always going to be cynicism surrounding the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake, but director Tetsuya Nomura seems keen to keep people optimistic. Speaking to Famitsu at a recent Dissidia Final Fantasy event in Japan, he attempts to set the record straight.
According to Nomura, the current speculation that development hasn't even begun is incorrect. Previously, he had said that Final Fantasy VII Remake will be the "focus" once Kingdom Hearts III is released, which lead to a lot of people wondering if Remake's development was on hold.
"There’s been some misinformation regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake in some parts of the Internet so I wanted to touch up on that a little," Nomura explains. "That [speculation] is not official. As I said during E3, development is going favourably. I just wanted to say that the current PR priority is Kingdom Hearts III [...] but after that it’ll be Final Fantasy VII Remake, so please don’t worry." It seems that in past interviews, Nomura was referring to the PR side of things rather than the actual development of each project.
So how far in development is Final Fantasy VII Remake, exactly? We don't quite know, but at least Nomura's words have given us a bit more hope. Now we just have to pray that we soon see something of the game itself.
Good stuff! As one of my most favourite games ever I'm really excited to see what they do with it.
so does that mean the next big PR push fro Square will be about FFVII, great plus when you think about it buckling down on KH3 was probably the best thing to do
Obviously there was a misinformation they at least finish the title screen by now meaning 1 less year of wait
Ps5 launch titles
Dissidia event? I thought that game was D.O.A.
Guess we'll wait and see what happens after KH3 releases.
I've heard that it's 99.99% done but they can't seem to break that limit.
That's worse than one of my jokes!
@kyleforrester87 I'm telling ya. Pass me my coat there, pal.
KH III should come with a FF VII demo hehe
@ApostateMage hee hee 😂
So it might not be a PS6 title? I mean, I doubted there weren’t doing anything with it, but I’ll beleive it’s going well when it doesn’t come in 8 years.
“There’s been some misinformation regarding FFVII Remake in some parts of the internet... that is not official [and] development is going favorably”
I’m not surprised to hear him say this, but I am surprised to see that he clearly is reading the Push Square comments sections!
Hi, Mr. Nomura! 👋🏼 Thanks for dropping by!
Whatever the situation is, can't imagine it's ever a PS4 title at this point. I think I would be disappointed to find out they were even trying to get it on PS4, better off going for 4k, 60fps and HDR on next-gen.
Currently progress so far......
Lots of artwork
A trailer that's from 2015
And that's it
PS4 exclusive yeah right PS4 more like
I don't like seeing FFVII and KH in the same sentence.
FFXVI to be released before FFVII Remake.
The confusion was created by the combination of "We moved development to Square Enix" and "We have been totally busy with Kingdom Hearts III until now". It looked like they had scrapped the third-party material and started from scratch and I have even heard that they gave up the project. It's great to know that the project is alive but I hope that it's a more classic remake with updated visuals and refined controls and not a Hollywood action film. I think that it's pretty obvious that it won't launch this generation though.
Dev focused on KH3 doesn't mean they aren't doing anything else. It just means they are focusing on the coming release, which makes sense. I don't really get rumours like this.
