‘Final Fantasy VII Remake' Featured In EB Games Australia, Hints Release This Year

“Final Fantasy VII Remake” has been finally listed on EB Games Australia for pre-orders for the Xbox One version, which means the said game won’t be exclusive to PlayStation 4. The thing is that the release date stated in the information says “TBC 2017”, which probably means to be confirmed in 2017. But players who are anticipating the release are already hoping that this is actually a hint that the role-playing video game remake will actually be released sometime this year. With PlayStation 4 versions usually released first before the Xbox One versions, the game might just be out sooner than everyone thought.

More like a piece of it will be released this year.

I don't think any of it will release in 2017 - Tetsuya Nomura (KH3/FFVII director) just said both games 'still have a way to go' and that he'd like to show his progress at an event later in the year... doesn't make it sound like either title will be out anytime soon.

Wrong the guy behind KH3 and FF7R said the GAMES ARE WAYS OFF so no it wont be this year..

Even if so I still believe we'll see something big from FFVII Remake, as it's the games 20th birthday this year. Maybe a demo, maybe an introduction episode, maybe a full episode release with his earlier announcement just for the shock value/not to spoil anything.

Of course this could just be what I want, a man can dream.

Yeah lets gets episodes cuz they are to fuking lazy to work on a full damn game and ruin FF7

How about you wait and see there bud? I don't know how the episodic format will work out but I'm willing to give it a chance. If this split the game into regions and provide enough depth in each episode it could be seen as a full blown game, I can see this working out. Of course, if they just decide to charge full price for only a little piece of the full game without adding things/providing enough depth to the game, you know they'll have to step up their game for the next episode for it to sell well. I'm more for the wait and see approach.

@peewee11016: You are a moron. You obviously have no idea what Square is doing with this game. They can't remake VII the way it needs to be remade if they make it in one game. They would have to dramatically cut things from the game to make it in a timely fashion or else take ten years to make the game which is HUGELY expensive to pay for a single game. People like you have no idea how game development and budgets work in this industry. This isn't episodic pieces of a game that they are selling us like a Telltale game. We are getting large games the size of or even bigger than FFXV. They need to make money too and not just throw a ton of money at a game just because we want it. It has to be profitable. They have tons of passionate people working on this game so thankfully it isn't going to be some cash grab project. The original key people are working hard to give us the remake that it deserves to be for them and for us.
