An investors' document recently shared by the company highlighted its plans for 2017 and the succeeding years. And there's a chance that Final Fantasy 7 Remake may be released later this year.
We still haven't received enough substantial info for the first episode to even have a chance of releasing this year
yeah... one of the biggest JRPGs is going to silently launch within the next few months, possible but not likely. fingers crossed though. E3 though is the year where the FFVII remake must make an appearance. for the sake of the 20th anniversary.
Agreed. That is just such a far fetch that I just don't see it fall 2017. I mean who knows, what if they have a substantial amount done and just never showed us to wow us with a Fall 2017 EP--01 release date? I wish, but I'm doubtful. They did get a great team to do the core game though!
No it's not. Square Enix doesn't even have a release date on Kingdom Hearts 3, which Nomura is working on as well. The best thing I'm hoping for this year is a playable demo of the reactor sequence.
Kingdom hearts 3 is a full game. Where ff7 remake is in episodes.
Yeah but hefty episodes at that. FF has always been known for having more plot content than KH. And we're expecting even more content. Also KH has had previous games to solidify it's mechanisms... 2.8 played like a combo of BBS and KH2. The KH team has had plenty of practice to get what they want from all of the games they've done recently, BBS, 3D, BBS2, KH2... All of which they can rip systems from. FFVIIR only has FFVII to follow, which is 20 years old and none of the systems can be ripped, they have to be built from scratch with all new code. Plus KH development started earlier so it makes sense for the game to come out earlier. Consider that they also have like 9 characters they have with different fighting styles. So far we've only seen Cloud and Barret and they don't look anywhere near complete. We haven't even seen Tifa and Aerith... Nomura's says they're still working on the FIRST boss and we've already seen multiple bosses and mini-bosses from KH3... It's highly likely KH3 is released first.
Episodic does not necessarily mean smaller in scale. Squeenix has already confirmed that each episode will be the same size as the entire original game. They are adding a literal metric f*ck ton of new content.
FF7 remake has been in development for years, we have gameplay footage of it and its in episodes so we don't even know what EP01 will consist of to really say 100% no to fall 2017
I know FF7R is episodic but due to the release of KH 2.8 I think KH 3 takes priority over FF7R
Different teams. Square is not made up of 1 team. https://www.destructoid.com... So no, Cyberconnect is not working on KH3, I don't even think the main KH3 team even worked on KH 2.8 ie the entire team 100%.
Oh whoops.had no idea 2.8 was done by a different team, I only mentioned both (FF7R and KH3) as Tetsuya Nomura is directing both and KH is his personal baby so I expected 3 to take priority
@TheOtto- I understand. He is focusing his time on many projects.
Probably be Q2 2018 at the earliest.
