Final Fantasy 7 Remake will still have an episodic release

Earlier Speculations were put at rest with the newly released trailer and now it looks like Final Fantasy 7: Remake could arrive sooner than we think. The decision for Final Fantasy VII Remake to be developed as an episodic game was to ensure that the original Final Fantasy VII would be brought to the current generation with all of its content, instead of having to fit everything into a single release.

The second State of Play closed with a new trailer for the Final Fantasy VII Remake, ending years of dormancy for the ambitious project.

Thinking realistically, it's totally understandable that Square Enix would split Final Fantasy 7 into a few different releases. The remake is getting an enormous overhaul, with all new visuals, new cutscenes, and a new battle system.

Back in 2018 at the 30th anniversary Final Fantasy Art exhibition in Tokyo, remake director Tetsuya Nomura surprised attendees by showing them new screenshots of the game. It's a huge undertaking.

Is it still a bummer that the first part of Final Fantasy 7 Remake has taken this long, still isn't out, and there are other parts that might take equally as long? Or our great grandchildren's names, for that matter. No idea! FF7 Remake is a mystery!

More details are also confirmed for June, likely at Square Enix's E3 press conference on June 10. Square Enix, however, isn't done with the excitement yet. But previous year, he was promising that the remake was "actually in development".

Fans have questioned the status of Final Fantasy VII Remake, including whether it would still be released in multiple parts, when the project went silent after its 2015 announcement. That would absolutely blow the doors off the joint.
