Developers at Square Enix may be taking time making the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. This is the cause of concern of some fans who want to see the game. After all, the longer it takes to make the game, the higher the chances of its cancellation.
Given the stellar success of Final Fantasy 15, it only makes sense for players to clamor for Final Fantasy 7 Remake. After all, its original version did indeed skyrocket the popularity of Square Enix past the stars. The historic value of Final Fantasy 7 is worthy of the expectations people have for its remake.
Which begs the question, why is Final Fantasy 7 Remake taking so long? Some developers may have answers to the issue. It appears more exciting releases are the reason for this particular dilemma.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Is there a Final Date?
This confirmation came courtesy of fans from KH Insider who were able to translate a Famitsu interview with director Tetsuya Nomura. His answers shed light both to the development of the game and other upcoming titles. Nomura was quick to assure fans of the game’s smooth progress.
He said work on the game is moving “solidly,” in a way that assured fans. He moved on to explain that fans may have to wait a while longer for the remake to be released. This is, after all, due to clamor for yet another hit game, Kingdom Hearts 3 (KH3).
Nomura said it is hard to coordinate schedules of in-office and non-office staff. Aside from KH3, there are also work dynamics with supervisors to be taken care of. Nomura did assure that these issues, which are “physical ones,” are being resolved to ensure smooth development for both games.
More games, spinoffs?
Nomura did clarify that the time taken to make both games will guarantee their quality. He added this makes sure both titles are something that “will meet your hopes.” This is a pretty solid assurance, given that the remake will also run on Unreal Engine 4.
According to Gaming Bolt, fan clamor may be hard to keep up with given the game had been teased in 2015. A year may seem enough for some fans, but given that Square Enix is working on a lot of titles, time and work may have to be divided. Regardless, assurance that players will definitely get their hands on the remake is enough – for now.
