With Midgar taking up 2 discs the entire FF7:R experience will be 20 discs long! This epic story will take an entire decade to tell, we're in for the long haul.
Only a decade? The Midgar portion in the original game had a length of a good four hours on a first-time playthrough, the entire game lasted 30-35 hours for the main story. Seems like the remake will have five parts at least and I doubt that Square-Enix can maintain a rhythm of only 2.5 years between each release, especially because they will probably decide that the graphics need to be better on the PS5 and the conclusion on the PS6 shouldn't be shabby either.
