I think it started shortly after Nomura left FFXV production.

I just hope he finishes Kingdom Hearts 3 first lol. I dont want to wait for 2020 to play it.

Kingdome hearts 3 is looking really good, so I don't think we need to worry :D
I would imagine the brunt of the work has been done by now!

i think it will be out come end of next year start of 2017 latest

That's just unrealistic. Expect 15 and KH3 to drop first. Remember how long it took them just to remaster FFX? More like 2018 at the earliest.

Shazz1274d ago

do they not have seperate teams making those games? kh3 had gameplay so that could be out 2016 and maybe summer 2017 for ff7 then , one can hope haha

Square Enix has domestic subsidiaries all over the globe outside of acquired devs like Eidos, IO, and Crystal Dynamic, but the question lies on how big and how many teams they have working at each studio.

If I'm not mistaken, Square Enix is the only major Japanese game publisher who doesn't publish arcade cabinets, which is the source income for their competitors Capcom, Namco Bandai, and Sega

2017 will be 20th year anniversary for FF7.

I would think that Square will work tooth and nail to get it out during that year.

2017. 20th anniversary of FF7. I put money on it being released then.

I can definitely see that happening as they could make it a special edition 20th anniversary copies and such (crosses fingers)

January 31st, 2017 release date

Jeff2571274d ago

That is very likely. It is even a Tuesday which is the general release day for games today. Would be a perfect way to kick off that day and honestly I could wait until then.

pivotplease1274d ago

Only if KH3 gets thrown on the back burner. Otherwise I don't see it happening.

Release on 20th anniversary

Agent_00_Revan1274d ago

I'd believe that's the target date, but reasonably, it'll hit a delay or 2.
