Final Fantasy 7 Will Be A Three Part Remake, Square Enix Confirms

In tonight's 25th anniversary livestream, Final Fantasy brand coordinator and executive producer Yoshinori Kitase confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 will be remade in three parts. The first was Remake, the second is Rebirth, and the third will be Final Fantasy 7 Revive.

It took some time for Square Enix to even confirm the scope of the task at remaking Final Fantasy 7. Back at E3 2019, Kitase wouldn't even hazard a guess at how many episodes it would take to remake Final Fantasy 7, saying "we don’t know ourselves." Three years later, and it looks like Kitase has settled on three games to remake the PS1 original, which actually spanned four discs on the first PlayStation console.

Creative director Tetsuya Nomura later confirmed on Twitter that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be made in the same vein as Remake, inviting newcomers to the series even if they have no prior knowledge of the game.

"The development of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has been progressing rapidly since we adopted a new development stricture. A title of this scale in which everything is interconnected even before production began is truly rare," Nomura added. "In fact, some development has already begun on the third title. I myself have started on the development and am working towards completion of the series."

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is scheduled for late 2023, while Revive is still too far out for a release date. Crisis Core is also being remade and will arrive before either of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake sequels. You'll be able to play the upgraded version of the PSP action RPG later this year.
