Believe it or not, Final Fantasy 7 is 25 years old, and on its 25th anniversary, Yoshinori Kitase said they wanted to reveal Part 2 of Final Fantasy 7 Remake at the anniversary, but they couldn’t prepare it. But later, he added that the game would be announced in the coming months of 2022.
Final Fantasy 7 is one of the most influential video games in the industry, but for its old mechanism, new gamers weren’t able to enjoy it like modern games. Therefore Square Enix decided to remake the game and split it into two parts, which the first part was released in 2020.
On the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy 7, the original director of the game, Yoshinori Kitase confirmed the second part would be revealed this year.
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. We just started the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, so we want to celebrate and get fans excited, so within the next 12 months we want to share some information. Look forward to more information!
Co-director of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1, Naoki Hamaguchi, will be the director of the second part while Tetsuya Nomura takes a broader creative director position. Square Enix also launched a battle royal spin-off called The First Soldier for mobiles, and a second mobile game, Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, is also in work.
