It’s been nearly a month now since the highly-anticipated release of Final Fantasy VII Remake. By now, many fans would’ve consumed the game in its entirety, and are already raring to see what happens in the next instalment.
Speaking of which, what of part 2 of the remake, and subsequent parts? Recently, the director-producer duo of Tetsuya Nomura and Yoshinori Kitase dropped some hints as to how the rest of the series is faring. In short, they’re still figuring out just how many parts they want the remake to be.
“We have a general idea of how the story will play out, but we haven’t decided exactly [how many parts], nor can we confirm anything,” said Kitase, via a translated version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Ultimania guide book by @aitaikimochi on Twitter (via VGC). “There’s speculation that it will be 3 parts, but we’re just doing things one step at a time.”
“It depends on which team handles [FFVIIR],” said Nomura. “If we divide the work in large parts, it’ll take longer. If we separate the work in smaller parts, it’ll take a shorter amount of time. I hope to have the next part out ASAP.”
Of course, we already can be assured that part 2 of the remake is already being developed since 2019 at least, so it’s only a matter of time before it will be released. Given how the first part will be breaking its PS4 exclusivity in March 2021, one can only imagine the next one might arrive well after that.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
