Final Fantasy VII: Remake was originally revealed at E3 2018 however aside from a short demo that was shown at PSX 2015, the game has largely been absent at almost every major gaming convention. Final Fantasy VII: Remake director Tetsuya Nomura was recently interviewed by The Verge where he gave an update on this long-anticipated project.
According to Tetsuya Nomura, the game is now in ‘development’ and now just early concept stages. He is putting his best effort on both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy VII: Remake.
“So right now, it’s like I’ve been putting in 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts, 100 percent into Final Fantasy VII, 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts… just going back and forth.”
Final Fantasy VII: Remake was revealed at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference along with The Last Guardian and Shenmue 3. While The Last Guardian launched in 2016, Shenmue 3 and Final Fantasy VII: Remake have yet to be seen, although the former was set to release this year and has been reportedly delayed to 2019.
Final Fantasy VII is one of the most beloved entries in the series. It was developed by Square Soft when they hadn’t merged with Enix. The game was directed by Yoshinori Kitase who is now working as the producer for the Final Fantasy VII: Remake. The game was announced as a PS4 timed exclusive back at E3 2015 but recent rumors suggest that it might be multiplatform at launch now.
