Final Fantasy VII Remake is a ways off from release yet, much to the grief of the many, many people who’ve been looking forward to playing it since it was first announced back in 2015, but game director Tetsuya Nomura has in a recent interview with Famitsu shed some light on the game’s development process and why it’s taking as long as it is.
“Work is moving solidly,” he said in a recent interview with Famitsu, before moving on the explain that fans will have to wait a while longer for FF7 Remake due to the added work of the development for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III.
“It can be difficult for the in-office and non-office staff to link up,” he said, “and then there’s KH3 (Kingdom Hearts 3) on top, and then the supervision works a little differently than it has before now. But these issues are physical ones, not ones with the (game) content, and we are currently moving towards solutions with the combined efforts of each section, so please don’t worry.
“I’m very sorry to keep you waiting, but it means we can make both titles something that will meet your hopes all the more,” he concluded.
Final Fantasy VII Remake, which will run on Unreal Engine 4, is a PS4 exclusive at the moment. Stay tuned for more updates.
