As we know, all the events of FFVII won’t be covered in one Final Fantasy 7 remake release date launch. Square Enix have confirmed that the story of the game will be released in multiple episodes like parts. One thing that even the developers don’t know is just how many parts will the Final Fantasy 7 remake have exactly.
In a brief questionnaire conducted by Kotaku, here’s what the producer of Final Fantasy 7 remake had to say:
“When we started out planning the plot for the first game, it hit us again… at that point, we decided we were going to focus the first game on Midgar and what happens in Midgar. Unfortunately, we can’t say anything more about future games, because we don’t know ourselves.”
The safest assumption to make is that Square Enix is following a route similar to what they did with Final Fantasy XV. That being to release further additions to the story in the form of episodic DLC.
Does this mean Final Fantasy 7 remake in its base game will be lackluster? Not likely. You have to keep in mind that the original Final Fantasy 7 wasn’t open world or as exploration focused as the remake is going to be. The aspect of fully exploring Midgar during the story’s events is a new experience and as such will have much more to do.
We already know that the Final Fantasy 7 remake hard copy will be shipping out with two disks as it is. Whether or not the Final Fantasy 7 remake demo at E3 will be playable for the public before the release is still unknown. As things stand, it seems like Final Fantasy VII Remake is going to take its time with the release just like it did with its development.
The official Final Fantasy 7 remake release date is set and confirmed for Spring 2020 next year. Pre orders for the game including the collector’s edition have been opened up now.
