The Remake of Final Fantasy VII Might Hit a Delayed Release but Its Second Game Release will Not Be Impacted

Games Latest News




Several weeks ago, Square Enix came out with news that shattered many hearts when they announced that the remake for Final Fantasy VII is undergoing a release delay up to five weeks so that the in-house developers have more time to incorporate planned changes into the game.

This series, which has been in the much-anticipated waiting list of gaming enthusiasts was originally supposed to be released this week only, 3rd march 2020 to be specific. However, though, a lot of work is still pending that led the Square Enix team to push the release date to April.

Among the good news, Final Fantasy VII Remake is not the only title that is kept ready by Square Enix. They had made an announcement back in 2015 regarding the Remake but they are also planning for the release of other chapters in the series. Each one is also as long as a full-length game.

This delay led many people to think that this might impact the release of its second chapter that is supposedly being called Final Fantasy VII Remake 2.

However, though, Square Enix announced that this might not be the case.

The president of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda said that their plans for any other future projects following Final Fantasy VII Remake are just on the cards. This piece of information was released when the company released its brief for financial results back in February.

The briefing was open for questions where Matsuda was asked directly if the change in the Final Fantasy VII Remake date has any direct impact on all of their future installments.

The answer to the question was a simple no. From this, the audience can take that The Delayed Release of Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Reportedly Not Impact the Release of Its Second Game.

Sometime before, Square announced that the second installment of the Final Fantasy VII Remake series was already in works. This also led to some gaming enthusiasts believing that the treacherous waiting time between the releases of two consecutive games will not be stalled as happened during the release of the initial title.

Along with the new release date announcement of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square also said that their upcoming Marvel’s Avengers title will also go through a production delay as its release was originally planned for May. The delay is even further than the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

The unexpected delay in the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake was made because the developers needed time. As per the game producer, Yoshinori Kitase, they need a few adjustments and tailoring to do before they can present the best gaming experience for their fans.

Back in 2015, Square announced that this particular game will be released in an episodic format. They said that the story of the game will be structured through a multi-part series and each character will display their eccentric journey and experience through the game.

Then again in May 2019, Square Enix issued a press release reconfirming their statement.

These point at one thing only. All future releases depend on the release timing of this game. It can also be concluded that any further installment of this game release on the upcoming platform PlayStation 5.
