Final Fantasy Tactics Rumour

In yet another story that suggests Final Fantasy Tactics really is returning, it sounds like the long-rumoured remake, or remaster, or whatever, could be next up on Square Enix's to-do list.

This latest hint comes from producer Ichirô Hazama, who, in an interview with Final Fantasy World about Theatrhythm: Final Bar Line, says that "the team that handles Final Fantasy Tactics is extremely busy with another project at the moment". Hmmmm.

Just to clarify, the team Hazama is referring to here is probably the same group of developers who crafted the recent Tactics Ogre: Reborn. Upon finishing up that project and launching it last year, it's fair to assume that this remastering team will have moved on to something similar.

And of course, we've been hearing about the revival of Final Fantasy Tactics for ages now. Word of a remake or remaster first spread thanks to 2021's infamous Nvidia leak, which included a whole bunch of unannounced games that have since become a reality. In fact, the aforementioned Tactics Ogre: Reborn was one of them, alongside fellow Square Enix port Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition.

At this point, it might be a question of when this revamped Final Fantasy Tactics title will drop. Perhaps later this year, after Final Fantasy XVI has made its mark? Or maybe 2024 seems more likely? It's tough to say without any additional evidence.
