E3 2015: Final Fantasy VII PS4 Won't Just Be a Remake, PC Port Still Coming
It seems the remake was in development before that other announcement.

Remember when the PC version of Final Fantasy VII was coming to PS4? Well, that's still happening, according to Square Enix. Despite the recent announcement of a full-on remake coming to Sony's console, which was apparently in development before the PC port was announced, Square has confirmed that not only is the port still on its way, but it will also be released for iOS

"When we announced the HD port, the PC port on the PS4, we weren’t sure when we wanted to announce the remake,” says director Tetsuya Nomura. “The production was underway then, so there’s no real connection between the timing of the two Final Fantasy VIIs coming to PS4. We’ve announced several different titles coming to the PlayStation 4 like World of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts III.”

It seems like Square (and Sony, probably) wants to make sure that there is an install base for their upcoming projects, hence announcing the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII remake. Nomura also assured fans that, while there would be alterations to the nearly two decade old game, the zanier elements fans remember (Cloud crossdressing, anyone?) will remain intact for the remake.

According to Nomura, "It won’t be a simple remake. Even if we were only making the graphics prettier for a next-generation machine, I don’t think it would exceed the original version. If that were the case, the original International version will be available on PlayStation 4, so you could just play that and be done. We haven’t put out any screenshots yet, but we’re making considerable progress, so please look forward to it."

We can expect further updates on the Final Fantasy VII remake in the winter.
