According to Yoshinori Kitase, they want to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Final Fantasy with news that will excite fans
Final Fantasy VII has become an icon both within the franchise, and in the gaming world, so it’s no surprise that some of its directors have shared commemorative messages to celebrate its 25th anniversary. For now, we have been able to relive this adventure with Final Fantasy VII Remake, but we are still waiting for a sequel that, according to Square Enix, will take advantage of the immensity of its world.
Now we have more information about this long-awaited Part 2, as its producer, Yoshinori Kitase, promises to give news throughout 2022. He said this at the 25th-anniversary event for the original game, as reported by VGC: “We are working hard on Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, so please look forward to hearing about it. Also, regarding the long-awaited Final Fantasy Remake [Part 2]… there will be more information… this year, if we can”.
Adding to this, Kitase responded to a question about whether the sequel’s release would happen this year, though the producer focused his answer on the information we will receive: “Well, yes. We’ve just started the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, so we want to celebrate that and get the fans excited so over the next 12 months, we want to share some information. Wait for more information!”.
This isn’t the first time Kitase has dropped the possibility of seeing news about Part 2 at some point this year, as he bid farewell to 2021 in the same way. And it’s only natural that expectations are sky-high, as Final Fantasy VII Remake proved to be a success that, as we told you in our review, demonstrated Square Enix’s commitment to expanding its own universe.
