Square Enix is proceeding silently with the development of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, as it confirmed that the game is still under quiet development, and will feature an open world unlike the previous parts and more information, including an update on the launch date.
The studio behind Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth recently opened up an area to answer a question group One of the questions that concern the players, and made the answer to them in the words of producer Yoshinori Kitase. The most important question was about the game’s development process, as the producer said it was going smoothly and according to plan, and they are currently setting a date for launching the game.
The game was announced in June last year, with Square Enix setting a “winter this year” release window. But we’ve passed that period and the game hasn’t been released yet, and the focus is entirely on the upcoming game Final Fantasy 16 this month.
The second question, which was directed to the producer of the game, was regarding the region of Midgar and how players would be able to explore. Yoshinori’s answer was that players would be free to explore the game’s map and conditions in all of its regions.
The creative director of the game, Tetsuya Namura, had previously confirmed that they are working hard on FF7 Rebirth and listening to the demands of the players at the same time. He also said that it is a title that will please everyone.
Regarding the launch date, it is said that the game will be released this year with certainty, but there are several sources that have confirmed that it may be postponed to next year so as not to affect the success of the other part coming later this month, Final Fantasy 16. What are your expectations about the other part of the series?
