As the wait for Final Fantasy VII Remake slowly draws to a close, another big question on many fans’ minds is whether or not the second instalment of the episodic remake will be delayed as a result of the first episode’s postponement.
Thankfully, it “will not” be, according to Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda at the company’s recent financial results briefing last week (via Video Games Chronicle). Furthermore, with Episode 2 already in development since November 2019, Producer Yoshinori Kitase is confident that production for it to be “more efficient”, suggesting that we could see a much sooner release than expected.
Assuming the next entry will release as early as March 2021, it will coincide with the fact that the game will have dropped its timed PS4 exclusivity by then, which is a good time for players from other platforms to jump right in.
Hopefully by then, most of the player base would’ve gotten through the events of Episode 1. And given the first part of the full game will already take up 100GB of space on the PlayStation 4, one can imagine just how much space the rest of the episodes will take.
In any case, Final Fantasy VII Remake releases on 10 April 2020 for the PS4.
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.
