Final Fantasy VII Remake Director Provides Reassuring Progress Update

The Final Fantasy series is one of the most lauded franchises in gaming history, and despite some of the recent woeful news from within Square Enix, the series is once again on sure footing thanks in no small part to the success of Final Fantasy XV. Now, with Kingdom Hearts 3 set to release early next year, all eyes are once again back on the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake, which has had its own share of rumors and setbacks to contend with. With that said, much of the former has been untrue, according to game director Tetsuya Nomura.

In a recent interview with Famitsu, the director revealed that there had been some mistaken information in regards to the game’s development. One of the rumors regarding the remake suggested that the game’s development had been halted while Kingdom Hearts 3 was being finished up. Thankfully, Nomura was able to quickly dispel that rumor.

That was not official info. As I said at E3, development is progressing favorably.”

While development is apparently going smoothly, Nomura went on to admit that Square Enix’s PR team has understandably been focusing on Kingdom Hearts 3. Thankfully, with the game’s release just a few months away, it should only be a matter of time before the PR team shifts focus over to the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Here’s hoping, as fans the world over have been waiting anxiously for any new media content for the game.
