It has been a couple of years since Square Enix announced that they will be remaking Final Fantasy VII. This is exciting news because this isn’t just some kind of HD remaster, but rather a remake of the original game, which hopefully will be able to live up to the hype and do the original justice.
Unfortunately a release date has yet to be determined, but some are speculating that the announcement could take place in 2018. This is according to a recent conference call with investors, in which Square Enix CEO and President Yosuke Matsuda suggested that release dates for upcoming major titles could be revealed between “the end of FY2018/3 and E3.”
Of course whether or not the Final Fantasy VII Remake is part of those “major titles” remains to be seen. Last we heard, which was earlier this year, the company indicated that there was still a lot of work left to be done on the game, and whether or not that work can be completed on time and in time for a possible 2018 release remains to be seen, although we wouldn’t be surprised if the release were to take place in 2019.
That being said, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently only set for the PS4, which means that Xbox One and Switch gamers will have to pass on it. No word on whether a PS4 Pro version could also be in development, but we wouldn’t be surprised if there was.
