Final Fantasy VII Remake: Its Happening, Insider Says

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy VII Remake: Its Happening, Insider Says

There has been a lot of talk, in the past few years, about a possible remake of the massively popular JRPG Final Fantasy VII, but Square Enix always remained semi-silent on the issue, only dropping hints here and there. A few days ago Producer Yoshinori Kitase himself said that he’d love to do it, but “it would take a lot” for it to happen.

Recently industry insider Verendus, that is known to have very strong connections within the Japanese gaming industry, posted on NeoGAF mentioning that the project is happening:

It’s happening. He’s obviously not going to give any indication as such though so it hardly matters until they’re ready to announce something. His comments make sense. It’s a huge project that will take a lot of effort, and demand a lot from him personally, in order to ensure the end result is something satisfactory.

Of course, as usual with this kind of leaks from insiders, we should take what is said with a sizable pinch of salt, but Verendus has a good track record with the information he receives from his sources, so Final Fantasy VII aficionados may not yet be able to uncork the champagne, but at least they can start filling the bucket with ice.

Xbox One exclusive, to compensate for FF X exclusivity.

I don't know if the Internet could handle that level of implosion.

LOL that would be the biggest slap to the face to PS fans. They waited all this time for a remake only for it to come on a console that never even had it in the first place.

 

OT: I won't believe it until I see it. There's always someone saying it is happening but it's never developed any further than rumours.



Why?? Make a new FF instead.



Would it really make its money back? I think SE would need to have a "funding partner". FF isn't the franchise name it once was, and there's no guarantee that a remake would sell nearly as well as the original. If the Tomb raider reboot struggled to break even with >4 million in sales, then SE would need to be extremely confident of getting up to the 8-9 million sales level to make it worth considering a re-make.

Prediction: Switch will sell better than Wii U Lifetime Sales by Jan 1st 2018

Damn, when people will stop with this shit... leave FF7 alone. Square, better this is not true, or I don't give a crap about FFXV in that case.
