Final Fantasy VII Remake Devs Working On A “Next-Generation Action Game”
While the Final Fantasy VII Remake will finally be arriving for the PlayStation 4 early next year, it will only be the first of what will likely be at least three games that will tell the story of Cloud and Sephiroth from start to finish. It has been expected that Square Enix would be working on each title in a row, one after the other, given the hype surrounding the remake. That said, a new report has revealed that Final Fantasy VII Remake developer First Development Division will actually be pivoting to work on a brand-new IP for Square Enix.
The news comes by way of a translation received by Gematsu, which reveals that the First Development Division is “aiming to realize a ‘next-generation action game experience’ that goes beyond the framework of existing action games, with an international team of creators from all over the world.” Given the high quality of Kingdom Hearts III and how stellar the Final Fantasy VII Remake looks thus far, it will be interesting to see what the devs come up with.
While no other news has been provided about the new IP at this time, it is important to note that both the PlayStation 5 and Project Scarlett are slated to release late next year, so chances are we’ll begin to hear more about the new IP at some point next year.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake releases for PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
