An insider said they could be revealed as early as February.
Last year saw the release of several hotly anticipated games, one of which was the beginning of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake project that seems to have been a massive hit for the company. The game is exclusive to PS4 for now, and is said to be so for up until April 2021, though it seems a new version of it and another Square property may be showing up in some degree soon.
Insider/leaker Navtra, who leaked Final Fantasy 16 and other titles last year, posted on the popular ResetERA forums to say that they were expecting to see the PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake being unveiled soon, as early as next month. They also say they think it and the next Life is Strange game, which they refer to as Life is Strange 3 but later say they think it will not have the 3 in the title and opt for a subtitle instead, will be revealed at around the same time.
“Square announcements are piling up. We’re getting XIV‘s next expansion’s reveal next month and VIIR PS5 & Life is Strange 3 should be soon after.
“Thing is, talking “when” is tricky due to the current circumstances. Games that were targeting this quarter for release as late as last summer didn’t even get trailers since. So I can never be too sure about when something is announced/released.
“With that said, I believe we’re getting these announcement sometime in February. I just can’t be 100% sure about it.”
It’s a given that 7 Remake would go to other platforms when the exclusive deal was up, at least a PC edition is expected, though the PS5 version may not be set to those rules and could come before the April 2021 cut off date. Life is Strange hasn’t been talked about much since the second game wrapped up, but it was said back in 2019 that the series looked to continue its anthology nature of following different characters.
