At this rate I'm losing any hype/excitement I had for the remake anyway... they're such a terrible company when it comes to development times, seems like all their games go through some sort of "hell", lol.

Lately they have some good faith because of Platinum Games, but honestly they have been a bit questionable for the last decade.

Honestly, I'd say they've been questionable ever since the merger, but I guess they needed it to keep afloat or something... but ever since then it seems like they've been declining with each new release, at least in the Final Fantasy franchise anyway.

Too optimistic.

You know, I wouldn't be surprised if Part 3 releases on PS5 and PS6 as a dual release. In the meantime, I'll just stick with Monolith Soft for my JRPG Fix, they can at least put out decent titles in a timely fashion. 

At least, Square Enix is better at publishing other devs games than their own.

Look at Nier Automata, Bravely Default/Second and Octopath Traveler for example.

As much as I do dislike the merger and also noticed a decline, they were still decent at development times & production in the ps2/gba era, and we had steady release of solid titles. Given Merger effects might have happened on the next phase of developed titles, which would be similar to Bioware with EA (Mass Effect 2 and Origins were fine, but you can see clear issues in Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age 2.)

Huh? Have they partnered with Platinum? Thought that was a once off thing with Nier.

I just meant Nier, but that is full credit in my mind to Platinum Games. 



 

Well, they did have a management shakeup recently. Hopefully, they put in people to help organize their development.

I think another big problem is what they are trying to pull off with this game. What they should have done is simply recreate the environments in 3D, but keep the area sizes the same. This would have probably kept dev time to 2-3 years. It seems they want to expand on exploration of certain areas, like Midgar. While that is an interesting idea, it just leads to even more work that was, for the most part, already done with the OG FF7. Now, they have to come up with more concept art. More areas have to be built within the game. Possibly more story points and dialogue have to be written/recorded. It's just too much to do, especially while they also want the director to finish up KH3.

People still bitching about a rumor that hasn't been backed up yet.

Edit:  Also, who in their right mind would use their actual name to post something like this?  True or not?  Now he's definitely got less opportunities if he loses a job, and a bridge burned.

The fact that people expected it to release in 2017 while it is 2018 with almost no news make people believe those rumors.

Never heard a peep out of anyone expecting it to release in 2017. We actually have news though that's telling one way or another.  That is SE saying the game is in full scale development not too long ago. Square Enix hiring more and more staff for the game is actually a potential good thing despite what people not in game development seem to think.

People were still being hired a year before FFXV's release, and this isn't even a thing specific to Square Enix as Uncharted 4 was hiring not too long before release.

As more and more people are getting hired it tells a tale that contractors will be helping out as the main staff was able to put in the building blocks of the game.  They'd just need more man power to meet a deadline.

That's why there's a question mark and unless they come out at E3 with a release date I'd say the rumors have some level of truth to them. Somethings rotten.

Nah, it would be nice to see something this E3, but it wouldn't mean anything necessarily either.  They have a few other places they could show the FF7 remake's current state, but E3 would be the best spot.  SE have a ton of games to show from the size of their booth this year.  I'm guessing Shadow of the Tomb Raider, DQXI, KH3, FFXV DLC, a FFXIV expansion, and the Avengers game are going to show up.  The FF7 remake I give a 60% chance.  At least from what has been said about it from Nomura is that the cut scenes were further ahead than KH3's.
