Final Fantasy 9 Remake is in Development – Rumor

"I heard very recently, once again, Final Fantasy 9 Remake is real. That is real and happening," reported Giant Bomb's Jeff Grubb.

During the infamous Nvidia GeForce Now leak, God of War (2018) on PC, Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed and Helldivers 2 were leaked and turned out to be true. However, there are still unannounced titles, like Final Fantasy 9 Remake and Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster.

While Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier said that the latter is indeed “coming,” the former has been more mysterious. Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb shined more light on it in the recent Game Mess Mornings stream. “Most of the Square-Enix games on that list have been confirmed or even came out by now, except for Final Fantasy 9 Remake and Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster…I will say, I heard very recently, once again, Final Fantasy 9 Remake is real. That is real and happening.”

Of course, there’s the question of what kind of remake it will be. Will it follow Final Fantasy 7 Remake and update the combat to be more real-time with pause? Is it akin to Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion with the same gameplay but ground-up remade visuals? Time will tell, but hopefully, Square Enix won’t go the Final Fantasy 8 Remastered route.

If an announcement for either title is in the works, a reveal could be coming at the Summer Game Fest Showcase on June 8th. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
