The long development process of Final Fantasy VII Remake is starting to become as tiresome topic of discussion as the years of rumors we had prior its 2015 reveal. It seems like Square Enix has opted to take the approach of simply lay low and avoid having much media presence that would only increase the fans’ anxiety until they are prepared to share something meaningful. However, today we have received a small update from the game’s producer Yoshinari Kitase, who has confirmed the good shape of the project.
Kitase was part of a maxi-interview of the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu, along with other renowned Japanese developers, which has been published in this week’s issue. When asked about the progress of the remake, Kitase simply said that the development was going “well,” and that his goal for 2018 is to be able to work comfortably on the game. Let us remember that Square Enix assumed the full production of the game after it had been initially outsourced to CyberConnect2. However, Square decided to end that partnership and take full control of the project, presumably after being unhappy with the initial material.
The manager of the Final Fantasy brand, Shinji Hashimoto, said that he is looking forward to this year’s E3 and that his goal is to get fans more excited about the projects to come, so perhaps the fanbase should look forward to more news coming this summer.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PS4.
