We don’t know how many games the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be split across, but the title’s producer has said that those future entries will have a quicker development time than the experience that kicks things off in March 2020.
At E3 2019, producer Yoshinori Kitase took to Twitter to say: “While the development team finish the first game in the project, we are continuing to plan and outline the overall volume of content for the second. Due to the work already done on the first game we anticipate development of the second game to be more efficient. We have our own internal schedule and plan, but for now we’d like to focus our information on the first game in the project.”
It’s definitely good news for fans, who have been waiting for this initial game since its announcement all the way back at E3 2015. It appears that the work done on Midgard will be used as a sort of basis for what comes afterwards, as character models and the battle system will already be complete. Hopefully it’ll be smooth sailing from then on out, but we still don’t think you’ll hear anything of the next game in the lineage until the PS5 has found a home in our entertainment systems.
