COVID-19 can’t catch up with the team it seems – it had less of an impact on Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 than expected.
Yoshinori Kitase from Square Enix has revealed that the development of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 was also affected by the coronavirus epidemic, but by no means to the extent we would think, so he doesn’t think it would have an impact on the game’s release in the long run.
In an interview with The Guardian, he said the virus had made it harder for them to work, so now, like many other studios, they are forced to work from home.
“ I am pained and saddened to see so many people around the world suffering with the virus and even losing their live. When we set the release date for the game, nobody could have predicted a global pandemic like this, and the release of the game happening during this unprecedented situation has blindsided us.”
„At this current time, the team are still making the next game via remote working. Our performance will temporarily drop below 100% efficiency because of this, but I do not think there should be a big impact in the long term. I sincerely hope that Final Fantasy VII Remake can provide those who are forced to endure the stress of living under lockdown a moment of relief and enjoyment in these trying times.”
The first installment of Final Fantasy VII Remake is now available on PlayStation 4.
