While Final Fantasy XVI takes center stage this month, there is another major Final Fantasy title planned for the current fiscal year: Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. It’s been quite some time since we heard about the in-development second part of the three part Remake project, but that silence has been somewhat broken today.
In a brief message posted on the game’s official Twitter page, producer Yoshinori Kitase gave a quick update on the development progress. “Development is progressing smoothly and according to plan,” says Kitase. “We are currently working on nailing down a release date for the game.”
So there you have it – things are going well for Rebirth and if all holds true the Winter release window will remain in place. Those concerned about Rebirth’s content need not worry either – previously the development team mentioned that there will be a slight change in the order of locations you’ll visit throughout the story due to the nature of the project releasing as a trilogy, but none of the locations from the original FFVII have been removed. Additionally, the reveal trailer for Rebirth was only a teaser so the next time we see the game it’ll be much bigger and exciting.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is in development for PlayStation 5.
