Just making sure, you guys did see this, right?

(oh no I don't know how to embed tweets anymore)

Because reading through those job descriptions, it really does feel like Prime 4 is still a long, long way away. Maybe launch title for the next Nintendo console I'd say.

I don't think Prime 4 will be a next gen game. Based on where that tweet suggests development is at, and how long these games typically take, I'm thinking more Fall 2022, with Switch 2 coming Holiday 2023 or Spring 2024. It could end up being cross-platform, but probably not at first. Possibly if the Switch 2 is VR capable on PS4's level, that would provide an excuse to make a Prime 4 VR edition for Switch 2. As others have said, FFVII is episodic, so the entire game will most definitely not come to PS4, if PS5 launches in 2020 as expected. That's honestly probably what's taken it so long, is being redone for the PS5. Given that, probably none of it will come to PS4. If they rush it to launch with PS5, I could see the first few episodes releasing before Prime 4, but not the whole game. If they don't rush it to be a launch title, they'll be lucky to get even an episode or two out before Prime. If they change their mind and don't make it episodic, Prime 4 wins completely.

Why are so many people saying Metroid? We will see FF7 this year, but we won't see metroid until around 2021 most likely.

Well if we're taking about a full game, then Metroid Prime 4 will come out first. However, I sort of believe that Final Fantasy 7 won't be released in an episodic form, so that might be an unnecessary caveat anyways.

You do realize that Square Enix confirmed it was going to be an episodic release, right? It's not going to be a full game like the original, they said it themselves:

Yes I do realize that. But they also had a gameplay trailer of the game months before that of a build that was canned and they restarted development pretty much completely. The gaming industry in general has proven that episodic releases which were once big are quite often a disaster and there is only one series I can think of that still pulls it off (A Square Enix series, but they also had bad luck with Hitman so). I just do not see them sticking with an episodic release system.

Pretty much. I'm not necessarily agreeing with you in that it can't be released episodically, but Square's words from 2016 aren't exactly the most reliable thing either. This can go very much either way imo.

With the way Square is. Prime 4

If Square Enix was smart about how they ran their company, they would have fired Tetsuya Nomura by now and completely restructured their shitty ass localization department. (The voice acting in FFXII, XIII Trilogy and FFXV is god awful compared to AAA North American games)

I'm certain that SE will stick to an episodic release.



FFVIIR will take longer to release than FFXV.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
