Final Fantasy 7 Remake UPDATE: Bad news for fans as release date wait rumbles on

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is one of the most highly anticipated PS4 games on the horizon.

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake was first announced back in 2015 but since then news on the highly anticipated JRPG revival has dried up.

Apart from a handful of new screenshots released by Square Enix in 2017 fans haven’t had much to go on.

It was teased that news on the Final Fantasy 7 Remake could be coming in 2019 with fans waiting with baited breathe until that announcement drops.

In an issue of Famitsu at the end of 2018, FF7 Remake director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase were asked about their plans for 2019.

Nomura-san teased that his keyword for 2019 would be “seven” while Kitase-san said his buzzword would be “long-awaited”.

This seemed like big hints that news on the Final Fantasy 7 Remake was coming in 2019, and fans had been left wondering if news was due in April.

That’s because it was claimed that a Final Fantasy 7 Remake Uncovered event was taking place this month.

An image showing an alleged deleted tweet from the Square Enix account claimed the big event was happening in April.

The rumour originated from notorious internet message board 4chan, with fans left dubious as to whether it was real or a fake.

However, it looks like that question has now been answered – the rumour claimed the FF7 event was taking place on April 3 2019.

That date has come and passed without a single Final Fantasy 7 Remake announcement.

But fans still have hope that news on the FF7 Remake could be inbound in the near future.

This is because Square Enix could have dropped a big hint the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is coming sooner than people think.

The Shinjuku-based Japanese gaming giant in February released new financial results.

They revealed that they are targeting a big increase in revenue for the third quarter of the current financial year.

This would be between October and December 2019.

Fans are already speculating this big revenue increase could be due to the release of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

In a post on the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Reddit, one Redditor posted: “Square just posted their investor briefing in which they expect a big increase in revenue (as stated before) in Q3 of their fiscal year 2020.

“Which means between October – December 2019. They expect 40-50 billion yen, which is double that of Q2 and Q3 of 2018 combined.

“This can only mean FF7R the way I see it.”

Square Enix may also hinted that Final Fantasy 7 Remake news could be coming prior to E3 2019 in June.

Discussing upcoming releases in their February investors briefing, Square Enix said: “I cannot go into any detail at the moment, but I believe we will be able to make various announcements in the lead-up to this year’s E3.”
