Final Fantasy VII Remake has been rumored to make an appearance at E3 2018. The game was originally announced at E3 2015 and aside from a short gameplay teaser at PSX 2015, there has been no news shared for it. The development for the game was internally rebooted when Square Enix decided to drop CyberConnect 2 as one of the developer on the game and took the whole project internally.
The most recent image comes from an off-screen shot of the game that was spotted by an eagle eyed fan as uploaded by the official developer on their recruitment page. Those who have played the game might remember it to be the Air Buster boss fight.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is a complete re-imagining of the game from the ground up, featuring the original creative team behind it. It is being developed on Unreal Engine 4 and directed by Tetsuya Nomura. Yoshinori Kitase, who was the director behind the original release, is serving as a producer on this remake while Kazushige Nojima is the lead writer for the Remake.
Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced as a PlayStation 4 timed exclusive and it was originally planned to launch in episodic form. This might have been scrapped after the development of the game has shifted internally since the original plan was to get the game as soon as possible with help from CyberConnect 2.
