It seems we could learn more about what’s next for part 2 of the FFVII Remake in 2022. In honor of the series’ 25th anniversary, a live stream aired in Japan on January 31, 2022. Yoshinori Kitase, who directed the original game and produced the first part of the remake, appeared. While there, he teased that news about the next portion of the game will come up sometime in 2022. [Thanks, Audrey and Video Game Chronicle!]
When the topic of the next entry came up, Kitase noted that more details about it will appear in 2022. He noted that sometime later in the year it could come up.
The whole of the FFVII story is being broken up for the remake. The first portion of the game only covered Cloud’s time in Midgar. It ended once he left the city with Aerith, Barret, Red XIII, and Tifa. No details about FFVII Remake Part 2 came up since its launch in 2020.
This could be one of the new FFVII “projects” teased by Kitase and Tetsuya Nomura. In honor of the anniversary, both shared messages. In each one, the developers teased new developments.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC. FFVII Remake Part 2 is in development.
