It has been a long while since “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” was first announced during E3 2015. After its reveal, the game generated frenzy among fans of the original PlayStation RPG. There were some fans who loved the idea of some of the tweaks that will be featured in the new game. However, there are some RPG game purists who wanted the same battle system and features of the original game intact. Meanwhile, it seems that game’s development, overseen by Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura, continues to be on the way. Fans will have to wait a little longer before any relevant announcement comes their way.

“Final Fantasy 7 Remake” development in good progress

According to a Japanese publication, Tetsuya Nomura discussed the status of several projects currently under way. The Square Enix director shared that the RPG was steadily making great progress. Even though the RPG seems like it's nearing a certain development milestone, the publisher has opted to keep it under wraps for the meantime. Furthermore, Nomura provided a more detailed explanation as to why marketing announcements are currently not an option. He revealed that the title already features some elements that are “further along” compared to “Kingdom Hearts 3”. However, they have decided to cancel all external development and move everything internally this time around.

In-house development decision

A few months ago, Square Enix officially revealed their decision to shift all development in-house. Previously, they delegated work on some chunks of the game to third-party developers. It was also confirmed that the Japanese firm started to advertise that they are in need of new talent to work on the game.

Yet, it appears that progress is currently at a standstill. On the other hand, some industry analysts believe that Nomura’s supervision of the development of “Kingdom Hearts 3” contributes to the delay. Since the Disney cross-over game is scheduled to release sooner, gamers can certainly expect some form of delay.

Time equals quality

Square Enix has been a name considered by RPG fans as synonymous with quality. So it is not a surprise that some gamers believe that the more time spent in development, the higher the quality of the game. Still, further unexplained delays to “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” might eventually anger a lot of fans and cause others to lose interest. It should be noted that the RPG is set to launch in several parts, which gives gamers the expectation that the next installment should be finished in time before they complete the first part.
