Few games were as lauded in 2020 as Final Fantasy VII Remake. This reinvention of the classic PlayStation game is a faithful but original recreation. It blends the source material with intuitive new combat, voice acting, and music to please fans new and old. After the FFVII: Remake ended on a cliffhanger, fans eagerly anticipate more information regarding a sequel. When will this beloved franchise continue?
The short answer is: there is no concrete release date set for FFVII: Remake. Square Enix is hard at work on continuing this story, with Naoki Hamaguchi directing the sequel. Tetsuya Nomura fans will be happy to hear he'll return as the creative director in the next installment. Fans can expect this title to be released in 2022 at the earliest, but 2023 seems more likely, especially because of the team's focus on the newly released DLC.
