We all know of the tumultuous journey the Final Fantasy VII Remake has had since blowing Gamers mind at E3 2015. Director Tetsuya Nomura reaffirms fans that development is going well and not to believe everything you read online.
how many years has it been since this was announced? how many more years we gotta wait for this? 😐
3 or 4 years ago i think. It was going well till the ditched cryberconnect and started from scratch, nothing after that
Director Tetsuya Nomura reaffirms fans that development is going well and not to believe everything you read online.
They didn't start from scratch. CC2 weren't the main devs on the game anyways. Please know what you're talking about
Harkins1722 https://www.google.co.uk/am... I know what im talking about. Ive been sticking with this game since the announcement
@thatguyhayat All you provided as proof is in fact a rumor. You are believing a guy that says he isn't speculating and is providing facts because he has really good speculation. Looking at that speculation, you have 2 years worth of CC2 work out of 4 years total. How does scrapping CC2's 2 years of work give you math where 4-2=0 aka starting from scratch? Hearsay and speculation does not equate to facts. At the end of the day you are like the rest of us. You aren't a subject matter. We are all in the dark and you can either believe Nomura or you can choose to believe he is full of shit. All we can do is wait for KH3's release so we can get new proof of FFVII Re's actual progress.
No you dont. You're reporting a "rumor" not a fact. A fact is that Nomura has come out and clarified many times that the rumors online are false. You clearly havent read enough sources if you believe they started over.
thatguyhayat You can't be serious. The ENTIRE point of this is to not believe everything you read on the internet. Square-Enix Business Division 1 have ALWAYS been the main developers on FFVIIR. What else do you think Square's main team would be working on? CyberConnect 2 were always an assistance team and it's been stated by Square that their work didn't comply with each others'. It's no different than how Hexadrive, Xpec, and so on were assistance teams to Square-Enix Business Division 2 with FFXV.
It hasn’t been too long. Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced forever ago it seems and it is still coming. People don’t have patience these days and need something to complain about . They announced the game before they even started so everyone should have known it would be 4 or 5 years at least . This is an ambitious project
The announcement was a gameplay trailer. What do u mean before they started working on it?
They actually had worked on the remake like 1 year before they announced it.
It speaks to the track record of SE, and how much their fans are willing to put up with, when a game announced more than 3 years ago, and virtually nothing to show for "hasn't been too long"
not enough year for our wait to HL3
Hockey League 3?
The game was in it's planning stage when it was announced. The game is going to take a while before it comes out.
2015,probably 5 more years from now...lol!
I wish they’d show some substantial info to reassure fans On a side note I also wish Cloud spoke English in SSBU
They are likely waiting for after KH3.
It’s not like the entire dev team working on KH3 is working on FFVIIR, only the same director for some reason. We still got some info on KH3 before FFXV got released, but nothing substantially new about FFVIIR since 2015
Probably is because they want the lights on KH 3 right now
Indeed, but in the article it says all PR is focused on KH3, which would explain silence on 7R. Hopefully we will get a nice bit of good news after that has shipped.
That doesn’t mean they should keep FFVIIR completely in the dark Even when KH2 was about to release they still kept delivering info on FFXII.
what negativity? i have not seen any negativity for final fantasy 7 ?
Vocal minority worrying about nothing as usual
Negativity about the development timeframe, not about the game itself.
Changing the genre to Action-RPG naturally creates negativity.
I wouldn't be surprised if the next time we see the game it will be on the PS5.
i am 99% sure, ps5 coming in 2020 early most likely like march 2020 or something like that, so just a bit over year from now
Im not expecting a 2019 release but an early 2020 makes sense to me.
That's a given. They've already said before that they're not going full steam on this game until KH3 is out. There's little chance this game makes it before PS5. It Could be a REALLY late PS4 game. But by that time, just make it a PS5 game and it would be a good system seller.
Im guessing its going to be a cross gen title but they will show off the PS5 version as a launch title for the platform. But even then i have my doubts on the game releasing in 2020 given their track record.
Please be excited.
I’d rather not see tid bits of games as development goes on and just get a release date and some info not too long before release. A lot of things change during development anyways. It will come out eventually and make them a ton of money
Announced faaaaar too soon to build hype for what???
Guess they will go full on development after kh3 launch
It's like releasing a movie trailer over a year than the hype dies down and you forget about it and you wonder why.
I wish it was getting a remake similar to how Crash and Spyro got their remakes. I don't see the point in remaking FF7 if they are going to change so much of it. They may as well just make a new game if they are going to make it so different.
Nomura is suppose to be working on - finishing - KH3. Nothing should be happening with the FF7 remake.
Just curious is this game going to be a turn based RPG just like the original?
No. I think they stated that very early on.
Why do they take so long to release their damn games? If it's not ready within a year of announcement don't announce it at all. Quite simple.
Announce early, make over ambitious, create a new graphic engine, announce several other projects, find out scratch-built engine wont work, make more claims, announce more projects, graphic engine still not working, shift effort into side projects, announce more projects, dump graphic engine use generic one, , maybe finish side project, announce re-commitment to original project, change mind make new graphic engine, announce new projects, release - if not finish - side projects, don't move any of old team back to original project, maybe finish/release/announce side projects, realize old team hasn't been put back on original project... It just goes on and on from there. And i forgot a lot of steps.
Oh ok so it’ll be released in the mid-life of PS5... Square Enix is such a joke now.
This is clearly now a PS5 title there is rumors about a PS5 release in 2020 this game is not coming sooner than 2021 imo so don't expect to see this game in PS4.
We can all agree this is going to be a ps5 and ps4 title
It will. I don't think their that dumb to release on next Gen of 2-5 million consoles at launch when they can release on 120 million consoles by then. Since PS4 BC should be a given, they'll just upgrade the graphics like they do for Pro and X. But I'll tell you, this company is just too slow at development now and have been teasing playstation fans for 2 generations now. I would like to see another company make an RPG at the level of Final Fantasy and embarrass them. Then, maybe it will make them speed up the process of making a better game
That will finish on the PS6. or PS7. If physical consoles are still a thing then. Don't forget, its going to be episodic. With DLC.
I'll believe it when I see it. We've heard this kind of talk countless times before. Ever since Final Fantasy XII released, SquareEnix have struggled to get major games out - XIII, XIV, Versus XIII / XV, Kingdom Hearts III, and now the VII Remake, which was announced like 3 years ago. Also, Motomu Toriyama has been working on something for 4 years, and still no word about it. I mean I know they make big games, but it just seems like the real reason for them taking so long is how troubled their development processes are, not how much work a specific, fixed idea requires to be realized. Scrapping everything and starting from scratch, re-writing stories over and over, completely changing engines. It's like they're really bad at planning or something. I also suspect the suits frequently mess everything up - just look at what they did recently (cancelling XV DLC and other big projects for the sake of future "subscription service" plans). Also, according to a leak about Versus XIII, they demanded that it be condensed from a trilogy into a single game and that the plot be changed, and then that the game be made into a major release (XV) rather than a spin-off, because the company needed a major release. All the best staff should just quit and go indie.
games can take up to 5 year cycle to develop in to some thing that can be shown or released and in some cases even more, games are such complex thing to make from conception to release, so theirs a good chance next year after KDM H3 we will see much more, I'm optimistic lets hope X mas 2019
At this point its basically just 'itll come when it comes'. Better that than rushing a game that's been this hyped for this long.
after KH3 release, i think we'll see more of FF7 remake, like now we see more of KH3 after FF15 released
FF7 isn't an action button smashing game, Square can fuck off at this point. Unless they give us the option for Turn based.
This is exactly why I find this whole thing so pointless. It's going to get absolutely ripped apart by the fans if it doesn't stay faithful to the original. The fans just want FF7 with a modern look to it, not a complete change in the way it plays.
which is why we need the option for both action and turn based combat.
I'm immensely skeptical about this game but I love FF7 and hope it does it justice. It just seems like the development process has been too fractured and drawn out for that to happen but I'd be very happy to be proven wrong.
I'm happy to wait but that announcement at E3 is a big con, everyone would of expected it by now and it didn't happen. Would be nice to see some screenshots or gameplay at some point.
Woth kh3 out of the way this upcoming january, I expect them to put in a ton of work into ff7 and actually give us information.
I see this being on next gen consoles or a cross over release.
I'd be a little delighted to even just see official concept arts of the characters. Give us something, even just a tease.
They better not be implementing hairworks or whatever in to the game.
It'll probably take about as long as Final Fantasy Versus 13 did.
Everything about this remake looks like crap.
People CLEARLY don't realize that FF7 world is HUUUUUUUUGE and that costs so much effort and time and thinking how to execute it part by part since one blu-ray isnt enough for it
I have no problem with them taking their time to make a really good game. I have a problem that they announced the game way before they got close to shipping it. This is a pattern in the industry that I can't stand. Whether it was Last Guardian, Crackdown 3, Final Fantasy VII, etc. Please, know your release date is solid before you show off your games.
Keep it Square, I wont support episodes.
