Today Square Enix published a report from the latest investor relations conference hosted in Japan, and President Yosuke Matsuda made a couple of interesting comments.
First of all, we learn that the delay of the Final Fantasy VII Remake will have no impact on the development or launch timeline of the next installment.
It’s actually a bit unclear here if Matsuda is talking about the second part of the remake or the next mainline Final Fantasy game, and the wording in the original Japanese document doesn’t help here.
He also offered a comment on the development of next-generation games, indicating that the publisher will likely focus on cross-generation or backward compatible titles for the time being.
“The next-generation consoles will have backward compatibility, so we plan for the time being to make our new titles available for both current and next-generation consoles. It will therefore be somewhat farther down the road that we release titles exclusively for the next-generation consoles.”
If you’d like to see and learn more about the game, you can enjoy the opening cutscene, the latest screenshots, the previous, spectacular trailer that revealed Red XIII, another large batch of screenshots, and the previous trailer from The Game Awards.
We also have some wallpapers and avatars showcasing Cloud, more starring Barret, some displaying Tifa, more featuring Aerith, another gallery of screenshots, a few recent videos, a couple more clips, a charming TV commercal mixing live-action and a nostalgic feel, another trailer, plenty more beautiful screrenshots, and gameplay with the reveal of the Classic Mode.
The first game of the Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on PS4 on April 10, 2020.
We recently learned that the game will be a PS4 exclusive only since April 10, 2021. After that, it could come to other platforms, even if nothing has been officially confirmed by Square Enix yet besides the date.
