So maybe a 2020-2021 release??

That's only 5-6 years of development.

Yeah...for Part 1. Remember, they're treating each section of the game as its own full release. So if part 2 and 3 each take a year riding off the engine's takeoff, it's still a 8-9 years development.

Exactly, we've been through this before with Square Enix. I don't listen to a single word they say now, just show us. I just can't ride a 10 year development cycle for 1 game.

Until it releases I won't consider this announcements with great relevance.

Any game that Nomura literally takes less than a decade to finish is faster than expected at this point, so I'm not holding my breath.

I still half expect him to turn this into a musical like he wanted with FFXV.

I'm not sure I understand the reference? Musical?  What musical?

And Nomura got taken off FFVX like mid production and was replaced by Hajime Tabata, that he scrapped a lot of Nomura's ideas and characters with the result we've seen now.  All Nomura got left to his name in FFXV were probably just character designs.  If anything, FFXV was nothing like what Nomura had wanted. I wished he stayed on FFXV as we could've gotten a better story or more complete launch version.  

OT: I'm fine if FFVII remake doesn't get released as soon as many would want as long as the game is well executed.  If anything, I expect this game to take the most of Square's time and resources because this game is the definitive of Square and it's baby.

I'm saying that Nomura, after all his years kicking FFXV's development around in circles, came to the meeting room one day after seeing Les Miserables and had the epiphany that FFXV should be a musical. They had to talk him out of it, and he was eventually taken off development so that someone could finally come in and actually finish the damn thing.

Nomura and his team was rerouted multiple times away from  FFXV to help the FFXIII sagas, and to help save FFXIV.

Jokes aside, if what he's saying is true, then I expect Episode 1 to come out in 2020. Development should ramp up after KH3 goes gold since Nomura will only need to focus on one game rather than two.

That's what you think.  Next thing you know Square will shuffle Nomura away on another project he wasn't aware of lol

I predict Episode 1 in 2020/2021 for PS4/XB1 ....then Episode 1 remaster for PS5/XB2 along with Episode 2.....then re-remaster of Episode 1 and remaster of Episode 2 for PS6/XB3 with Episode 3 released in the cloud lol.....then finally....Final Fantasy XVI after :P 



Given how long ago the game was initially revealed and how Square wants to cut this game into three pieces, i dont quite believe Nomura on this.But well, if its moving along now, its better than nothing.

.....What?

If anything, Nomura was send there to save the game.When he wanted to do something diferent and in the right way, which of course means time, Square got impatient and put Tabata on his place instead, and we got the mess of the game we have today.

Well, that's nice to hear I guess. At this point I'm more excited to play Tales of Vesperia remaster than FFVII remake.
