Final Fantasy VII Remake’s Final part most likely won’t show up before 2028

To be honest here, this is what we have been afraid of. After decades of wait and hope (it felt like this at least) at E3 2015 the Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced at Sony’s E3 press conference back in the good old days when we still had those.

After then another almost 5 years of painful wait, we got the first chunk of the long awaited remake of the best selling Final Fantasy of all times in 2020, followed by an enhanced version with additional content in 2021 for the PlayStation 5.

Fast forward to 2024, the second part of the supposedly three part remake is finally out with Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and the praises for it, both from fans and the media couldn’t be much higher.

But for those who finished the second part as well, the question now is, what and WHEN will we be able to finish the story? I feel that this news comes as no surprise but Square Enix Director Naoki Hamaguchi recently stated in an interview that the Part 3 of the remake of Final Fantasy VII is essentially where Rebirth was when the first installment was about to launch, meaning that we probably have another 4 years or so to wait, making a release before 2028 unlikely.

“Of course, I cannot tell you what stage we are at, but we have already made progress on the script and we are thinking about certain developments. When we got to the end of the development for Remake, we started talking about a sequel with writer [Kazushige] Nojima-san and I think we can say that we are in the same situation today.”

How do you feel about this and did you play the recently release Rebirth as well as the first part of the remake? Let us know down in the comments below.
