Out of seemingly nowhere, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth producer Yoshinori Kitase has provided an update on the upcoming game. In the short Twitter statement, he says “development is progressing smoothly and according to plan”. He adds: “We are currently working on nailing down a release date for the game.” And that’s it – no screenshots or additional information at this stage.
Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is, of course, the next part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake saga. It’s probably not a spoiler at this stage to point out that Remake is slowly evolving into its own game loosely inspired by the events of the PS1 original, and it’s likely Rebirth will progress in a completely different direction to the 1998 JRPG epic.
Presumably we’ll get a proper look at the title later in the year, when Final Fantasy 16 has released and Square Enix’s marketing efforts have transitioned.
