Is this a bit weird now? Following on from yesterday’s unexpected Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth update, where publisher Square Enix promised the game was progressing smoothly and that a release date would be nailed down soon, the firm has offered a vague update on how traversal and navigation across Midgar will function in the upcoming title.

“Players will be able to journey across the wide and multifaceted world with a high degree of freedom, experiencing a myriad of different stories along the way,” the statement signed by director Naoki Hamaguchi notes. There are no new screenshots or videos, just the ambiguous statement atop a charcoal grey background.

All of this feels a bit odd to us, because the publisher obviously has Final Fantasy 16 coming out later this month, and you’d expect its attention to be fully focused on that – at least until July, anyway. Nevertheless, it looks like we may be getting daily Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth updates for the foreseeable future, especially seeing as these tweets are numbered.
