The Final Fantasy VII remake was announced way back at E3 2015, and since then fans have gotten updates on the game every few months or so. However, based on the latest information gamers have, the game is still under heavy development.
Lol you don't say :P
No sh!t, it likely won't release next year or the year after either. 2025 if we're lucky.
Square Enix even said FFXV would help them develop HD games faster not too long ago, yet FFVII Remake ain’t coming any sooner from the looks of it
The fact that its running on unreal should have drastically helped with development considering ff15 had its engjne built from scratch.
If it doesn't release this year, I can;t see how they're going to get all 3 parts out before next gen begins.
I think it'll actually be a cross-gen game.
That would probably push me to wait for all 3 to be out and see if it comes in a single special edition package or something. But I don't know if I could wait until all 3 were out cuz I'm really looking forward to this xD
@ninsigma, That's what I'm planning to do if it ever gets released, I suspect I may be waiting as long as a decade for said game.
It won't bode well if we don't get any major announcements about it this year sometime.
I think what they have shown and described so far should be re-thought, don't change the game play in all time classic and don't split it up into episodes... Most fans just want the graphics to look like a 2018 game instead of a buch of jagged shapes, the action combat systems square comes up with hardly ever work out well. If they want to make quality of life changes they could maybe take out random battles or even just let us tweak the frequency of them.
it‘s a remake. stop wishing for remakes. nothing would be lost if this ff7 remake was just vaporware.
Who thought it would?
They better not put this on hold for as long as ff15 was...cause the expectations will be unrealistic.
But look at Square-Enix's track record, I do not see them keeping a strict development/release schedule, hopefully the game doesn't go through development hell like FF15 did.
You would think they would eventually learn their lesson, to get a little organized at least.
Can we just let them focus on release the Kingdom Hearts 3 first? FF7 will be a cross gen game at this point.
They can focus on multiple major projects at a time
"Who thought it would?" Well the millions that were told by a trailer that it was coming in 2017... The industry has a serious problem with announcing release dates.
Square has a serious problem with release dates.
Yep, this has actually become a massive issue for Square-Enix the past decade plus.
If you're surprised by this, raise your hand. And then slap yourself with it.
They really mishandled the announcement, Nomura didn’t even know he was the director until he saw the trailer himself.
I suspect that Square-Enix has alot of internal issues these days, things like this just contribute to my suspicions .
No fucking shit
This is almost certainly PS5 bound.
I’m bettIng PS5 launch window.
SE, take your time and do it right. You already have had success with the game, just add some polish and small tweeks here and there and your cooking with fire
Eh? Michael Pachter is that you?
Who Expected it to? ;:D
This year? Likely not this generation, or maybe even ever.
Who is actually still holding hope this game is releasing anytime soon? We would be lucky to even see the 1st part of its episodic release by the end of 2019.
This and Death Stranding which have been dropping hints/articles for the last 3yrs ;o) oh wait.....ZZZZzzzzzzzzzz......
Better not to release it at all.
