Final Fantasy 7 Remake was one of 2020's finest releases, but many may have been unaware that it was only a retelling of the first chunk of the original game – at least until the end credits.
Square Enix also left any confirmation of that off of the box, but it's meant that many are now looking towards Part 2 with bated breath.
Here's everything we know so far.
FF7 Remake Influenced By Horizon: Zero Dawn – February 15
Naoki Hamaguchi, FF7 Remake's co-director, has noted that he's been "hugely" influenced by the Horizon franchise.
“Horizon Zero Dawn, the first game of the franchise, left a huge impression on me as a game creator,” he told PlayStation Blog. “I was taken by the deep immersive experience provided by the unbelievable graphics as well as the unique world I found myself in, a future where civilization has collapsed.”
“In the sense that the next [Horizon] title is expected to evolve even further, Final Fantasy VII Remake, which I’m in charge of is expected to do so the same way."
Final Fantasy 7: Remake Part 2 Release Date
We don't have any news on when to expect the second part of what is sure to be an epic adventure.
In fact, the most recent Final Fantasy news we got was that the sixteenth instalment will be a PS5 exclusive, while FF14 Online continues to forge its own path.
Oh, and Sephiroth came to Smash Bros, too.
With the franchise never far from players' minds, it could be that Square Enix waits until it has more concrete information about Part 2 – especially since Part 1 was considered vaporware for years.
Final Fantasy 7: Remake Part 2 Platforms
With the first part being a PS4 exclusive (or at least, for now), we'd imagine Part 2 will only be on a PlayStation console. That being said, Square did skip the first few Kingdom Hearts games before bringing Kingdom Hearts 3 to Xbox One, so who knows.
It's unlikely the game would target PS4, though, so expect it to come to PS5 – potentially with a PS4 version playing second fiddle.
Final Fantasy 7: Remake Part 2 Story
In an interview with Final Fantasy 7 Remake co-director Naoki Hamaguchi and producer Yoshinori Kitase and CEDEC, the team were asked about the second part's potential to mix things up further following the revelations of the first part (and how it impressively subverted fan expectations).
As translated by Twitter user @aitakimochi, the sequel will look to surprise players in a similar way.
