Famitsu magazine talked to the Final Fantasy VII Remake developers and found out that the second part of the game is in an active stage of production. The 15-page interview does not come out until July 22, but details have already been published to Ryokutya2089.com and translated by Twitter user @aitaikimochi. According to producer Yoshinori Kitase, the new FFVII story “has only just begun.”
The release date of the next chapter is unknown, but Square Enix wants to deliver it “as soon as possible,” director Tetsuya Nomura said.
“We know that everyone wants the next installment quickly. We would also like to deliver it as soon as possible. Since we were also able to see the line of quality from the first installment, we hope to make the next installment even better in quality that can make for an even better experience. We would like to get it out as soon as possible, so please wait for it. I think we can clearly convey the direction when we officially announce the next installment.”
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is divided into large episodes of several dozens of hours. In April, Square Enix admitted that they don’t know how many parts will be in the remake.
