Final Fantasy VII Remake redefined our understanding of the original franchise and left us wanting more. As the next release was uncertain, we got the Intergrade DLC that offered a smaller piece of content as we waited for the full release of its second part. Plus, we know very little about how much the sequel would cover from the original game, as the first entry only covered the Midgar storyline from the original. Sadly, it seemed like today’s 25th anniversary live stream won’t give us an update, but luckily it seems we won’t have to wait that much longer.
Producer and director of the original Final Fantasy VII, Yoshinori Kitase, revealed that the first details of the sequel will be revealed throughout the year. The quote, whose translation is provided by Twitter user PushDustIn via VGC, does hint at some uncertainties if the 2022 reveal is definite.
We are hard at work on Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, so please look forward to that. In addition, with regards to the long awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake [Part 2]… there will be more information… this year if we can.Yoshinori Kitase
Still, this does mean that the reveal won’t take too much longer potentially. It’s going to be two years since the first part was released, and if we get our first details this year, we could hope for a potential 2023 release. There probably won’t be another piece of DLC, but it’ll be interesting to see how our work in the first part may potentially lead into the sequel, such as Materia, gear, or skills. Here’s hoping that the wait isn’t too much longer, as we head into a massive 2022 year filled with anniversaries.
