Square Enix gave a glimpse of Final Fantasy VII Remake part 2, which now has an official title, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will continue the events of Cloud and the party right after Remake. And the first look trailer shows more glimpses of scenes that were in the original Final Fantasy VII. Like Cloud hanging out with Sephiroth. And also a scene which did not happen in the original game’s timeline.
And there is some vague dialogue about changing the fate and future and a certain character’s death – a recurring theme in this trilogy of remakes.
And yes, Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and one more game (place your bets now what the subtitle will be) are a trilogy that makes up this remake of Final Fantasy VII.
“In time, I hope to reveal what the third title will be called, and where this journey will ultimately lead,” teased Tetsuya Nomura, FFVII Remake series creative director.
“The development has already entered full production and the team is highly motivated in putting everything together on the project and working to create a finished game,” said Naoki Hamaguchi, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth director.
“Making the middle part of a trilogy has its own challenges, but there are plenty of classic second instalments in the world of film that are defined by stunning story twists and deeper explorations of their characters,” said FFVII Remake series producer and Yoshinori Kitase.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be coming first to PS5 and targeting a release for “Next Winter”, so late 2023 at the earliest.
