Square Enix wants to reveal Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 this year

In addition to a potential reveal of Part 2 this year, Square Enix confirmed that more Final Fantasy 7 projects are coming.

Final Fantasy 7 turned 25 this year. In an ideal world, Square Enix would have already revealed if not released Part 2 of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. The closest thing that Square Enix has to show is last year's Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade for the PS5 as well as the same game's PC port, which was released in December.

After Final Fantasy 7 Remake ended on a cliffhanger, fans have been dying to know more about what's going to happen to Cloud Strife and the gang next.

Thankfully, Final Fantasy fans got some good news from Final Fantasy 7's original director, Yoshinori Kitase.

As reported by VGC, a translated quote from Kitase reveals that Square Enix is working on Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis, a mobile version that will re-tell the story of the entire original Final Fantasy VII universe, including the spin-offs featuring Zack Fair, among others. More importantly, Kitase confirmed that Square Enix will try to reveal more of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2.

Unfortunately, VGC's report did not include a confirmation from Kitase as to when Square Enix will reveal Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2.

We can only hope that Square Enix has learned its lesson and doesn't bet too much on building a huge Final Fantasy VII universe.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake was a huge success for Square Enix. The timed PlayStation exclusive told a revamped told of the original 1997 classic game, with slight changes that will be explored further in Part 2. However, presumably because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Square Enix hasn't had a chance to drop more details about the second part of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Although the introduction of Yuffie in INTERMISSION was a nice added touch, it didn't exactly further the story of the first part in a significant way.

Speaking of COVID 19, Square Enix confirmed earlier that Final Fantasy 16 is also delayed because of the current global situation.

The silver lining here is that Square Enix has several Final Fantasy projects lined up to tide fans over. Case in point, Final Fantasy XIV just went back up for sale again after Square Enix took it down due to a massive surge in popularity. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is also expected to launch on March 18. Finally, there are recent reports that Square Enix is working on an exclusive game for Sony's PlayStation consoles.
