Many of us will be too old to play FFVII Remake’s final part.

Tetsuya Nomura isn't the best director/story teller. It was doomed from the start. Just look how dated the overall design is of Midgard. Anyone could have done what they did for the remake.

Dont see why everything had to go to a hault when Japan itself never came to a hault. Development in japan couldve went along fine.

Japan did go into lockdown briefly in certain hotspots plus companies were advised to work from home. Only so much work you can do working alone as a developer, it delayed FF14's patched content from getting released and a lot of that stuff was done before they worked from home, took them an additional month.

I know exactly how long it went into lockdown About a month and it wasnt even mandatory.Many companies did make you work from home. Many companies were also ill equipped to do so cause it was their first time transitioning to telework. That being said besides that month. Everything was pretty much normal.
