Square Enix has finally announced the existence of Final Fantasy VII Remake, but you should remain skeptical about it. For your own wellbeing.
I am expecting a 2030 release date and this is not a joke. You will see. First Kingdom Hearts 3 will be done in 2020 then they will start working on this.
That won't happen because that would be really costly to SE. In order for them to wait that long they would have to constantly keep upping the graphics and standards to keep up with that year. They can't bring a PS3 or PS4 quality game in 2020 or 2030. More like Kingdom Hearts is late 2016 and FF7 is early 2017.
My prediction for FF7 Remake is holiday 2018. I really do think that's the year it will come out.
Shinji Hashimoto has said that this game has been in development since before last years Sony event in December so I am expecting a 2017 release which isn't so bad. However if they think they need to delay it a bit that is fine by me. This game is happening and we should all be excited for this.
I'd put FF7 at Holiday 2017 at the earliest. Much like TLG, it has several announcement/stall phases to go through.
I really really want to believe that this will be out in a reasonable amount of time, but I know I shouldn't :(
I love Nomura's games so much and i am sure it will be awesome but the problem is, you should never expect it any time soon.
didn't play the first one I hope it will be as good as its hype ^_^
It will just have to be good enough for now to know that they are finally listening to what we have been shouting for years. It will be very unrealistic to expect this game anytime soon. And I am okay with that (we all have to be). I just honestly hope I don't croak before then.
Wishful thinking here, but hopefully it will be out by 2017. The game's 20th anniversary.
The author didn't take some factors Into consideration though. When they announced that ff versus it was 2006. Ff13 and ff14 was in development. We all knew versus was part of the ff13 universe so it would come out later. One thing we didn't know was that they release ff13, ff13-2, and ff13-3. Square then decided to rename ff versus 13 to ff15 and move it to the ps4. This mean that ff15 was well into development for ps3 when they decided to switch to ps4. We all know that ps3 architecture was different than ps4 so that took time to make the switch. With ff7, it will be developed for ps4.
Honest release date expectation: 2017-2019. And that's on the LOW end.
The game has been in development for almost a year already. 2 and a half more years into 2017 it will be the 20th anniversary of FFVII. That's when it will be released (I hope).
Winter is coming.. Let us wait for more news friends.
a remake..... i dont trust them.. theyre gonna take away Gfs and turn based battle system....
GFs are from FFVIII
my bad ment to type summons but i hit the wrong key
What's wrong with change? so long as they keep all the amazing stuff from 7. what's wrong with a better crisis core, type 0 or kingdom Hearts gameplay? Or at least, an updated turn system like bravely default. gameplay needs to evolve. final fantasy had always pushed the limits. No one final fantasy is exactly the same. even the narrator in the ff7 remake trailer said, "let us embrace come what may." it's breaking the fourth wall.
what if they take away materia or the ability to level it up
this is someone who played 7 and loved it to pieces!
@illimaster I don't think they will. That's a huge part of final fantasy 7. And leveling up is an integral part of j/rpgs. Especially ff. I think the trailer was meant for fan boys who fear change and want turnbase forever and for everything and don't want to buy if they see change of any sort. (I love both real time and turn based, real time more, I think that's because kingdom Hearts 2 was my first Jrpg (or arpg)
