“Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth” Announced

Square Enix

It’s official, the second part of the extended remake of “Final Fantasy VII” is coming. It’s called ‘Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’ and it’s coming to PlayStation 5 next winter.

Square Enix has released the first trailer for the project below (be warned, there are spoilers for ‘Remake’). The new entry is expected to make better use of PlayStation 5’s unique hardware features.

It has been confirmed that the overall remake will be in three parts, with April 2020’s “Final Fantasy VII Remake” being the first and next year’s “Rebirth” the second. Yoshinori Kitase, producer of “Rebirth,” claims it’s “moving at an astonishingly fast pace for such a large-scale HD title.”

Creative director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed that “some development” has already begun on the third title:

“A title of this magnitude where everything is connected even before production started is really rare. In fact, some development has already started with the third title. I started the development myself and am working towards the completion of the series.”

Separately, it has been announced that a modern remaster of the 2007 PSP title Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion is in the works as a standalone title. Using the same engine as the FF7 Remake, it will be coming to all platforms this winter.

“Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade” has also been confirmed to be coming to Steam this week after a period of PC exclusivity on the Epic Games Store.
