Final Fantasy VII Rebirth development progresses smoothly as team works to nail down release date

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.
