Square Enix recently posted an update on their Final Fantasy VII Twitter account about Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. In what they called “Developer comment number 1,” the tweet quotes producer Yoshinori Kitase saying that development is going “smoothly and according to plan” and that they are working on “nailing down a release date.”

When Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was announced, it was projected to be released in Winter 2023 for the PlayStation 5. For those that don’t know, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is basically going to be part two of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Since they’re calling this the first developer comment, it’s probably safe to say that there will be more down the line!

Having played Remake, I’m very much looking forward to how they’re going to handle the rest of the story. It certainly went to unexpected places! Here’s hoping Rebirth is full of surprises as well. At least while we’re waiting, Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII- Reunion was just released at the tail end of 2022 to keep us busy with more FFVII!

For those looking forward to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, please check out our reviews for the start of this new series of FFVII games! Remake was very well-liked by our staff, as both Alana Hagues and Brian Mackenzie gave it a 90! Alana really liked the Intermission DLC as well. For what it’s worth, I also very much enjoyed my time with Remake as well!

Please stay tuned to RPGFan for continued Final Fantasy VII coverage!

Note: Square Enix has since come out with a second developer comment. In it, Director Naoki Hamaguchi promised an expansive world that players can explore with a “high degree of freedom.” There will also be “a myriad of different stories” to experience. Exciting!
