Square Enix Responds to PS3 FF7 Rumors

The June 2006 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly has ignited a bit of a firestorm with a comment made in its PS3 feature section. The buzz-creating quote in particular refers to a PlayStation 3 remake of the classic PSOne RPG, Final Fantasy VII. "Last year, Square Enix teased everyone with what was called the "FFVII PS3 demo," the article states. "Well, what do you know? This test case was really a sneak peek at a next-gen revival of the PS1 role-playing hit." Naturally, the Internet has been posting "FF7 REMAKE TEH CONFIRMED!!!" stories ever since. But we wanted to go straight to the source and find out if this was really the case. When asked, this is what Square Enix representatives told IGN directly: ""Since the FINAL FANTASY VII tech demo at E3 2005, there have been a lot of rumors about the presentation hinting at an actual remake. While the June 2006 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly confirms the remake for release in 2007, Square Enix has never stated this. We have however confirmed that development has begun for Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII on PlayStation 3. These titles are part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis Project which also includes a mobile game titled FINAL FANTASY Agito XIII."
