In an interview on Famitsu, Nomura-san mentions that with three Final Fantasy VII-related games announced today, he has more projects in the pipeline than ever before.
Since the core gameplay direction has now been solidified and the team can see clearly where it needs to be improved, Nomura-san will hand over the position of director to Naoki Hamaguchi, who co-directed the original Final Fantasy VII Remake.
That being said, Nomura-san will remain involved with all the Final Fantasy VII projects as overall creative director. The basic way he’s involved in the projects isn’t practically changing much.
Before working on the Final Fantasy VII Remake as co-director, Naoki Hamaguchi was project leader on Mobius Final Fantasy, main programmer in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, and worked in different roles on Final Fantasy XII, XIII, XIII-2, and XIV.
At the moment, we have basically no information on the sequel of the Final Fantasy VII remake, nor we know when we’ll hear more.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will release on PS5 on June 10, 2021. No PS4 version appears to be planned at the moment.
