This is great news for Final Fantasy fans.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake was a huge hit with fans, first when it was released on PS4 and then again with the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade on PS5 earlier this year. However, the less said about the PC port, the better. Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 could arrive in 2022.
In a year-end interview on Japanese gaming site 4Gamer, Square Enix CEO and Producer on Final Fantasy 7 Remake Yoshinori Kitase had this to say about 2022. "The world of FFVII, relaunched with FFVII REMAKE, will continue to expand in 2022! He also mentions the recently released mobile game Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier which was released last month as the first part of this expansion.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake fans have been eager for news about part two since part one was released on PS4. Yoshinori Kitase's new comments are the biggest tease fans have had when Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 may be releasing.
Before Final Fantasy 7 Remake has even been released, Square Enix has confirmed that work on Part 2 has begun. That was November 2022, so the second part of the remake should have been in production for just over two years now. In July 2022, Final Fantasy 7 Remake director Tetsuya Nomura reiterated that work was well advanced and that they were aiming for a release "as soon as possible". Square Enix has also previously stated that Final Fantasy 7 Remake is made like the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy. These games came out about two years apart and most importantly were built on top of each other and not from scratch like other games in the series.
With Yoshinori Kitase's new comments on the future of games, it looks like 2022 could be a good year for Final Fantasy 7 Remake fans.
