    Exclamation FF7R speculated to release this year

    A SE Revenue report sugguests big things are to be expected next fiscal year. Read the full thing here if anyone still cares
    Release likely in holiday season 2019 more info before E3. : FFVIIRemake

    Summary:
    SE is consolidating their 11 divisions down to 4. Reasons for which are speculated as being due to poor results for their mobile gaming sector and lack of resources to their console sector which has resulted in long delays and lower levels of overall quality to their console releases, namely Final Fantasy. FF7R is having an event (perhaps similar to ff15 uncovered) and will announce a release date either late 2019 or early 2020 to coincide with anticipated 50 billion yen profit margins for Q3 2020.

    So if it's anything like FF15 it'll come out in 4 more years on PS5.

    Also, nice reference.

    Defo won't be out this year, or next, unless they actually plan on making it episodic. If they are, i wont be picking it up until the "complete edition" which would then likely take 20 years, and even then thats only if the reviews are good. Which by their track record final fantasy wise, it wont

    I don't even have a current gen console, lolol. I do have a current gen gaming laptop. I don't know that that will help with this. I could play FF15 or DQ11, though.

    Man, talking about FF7 reminds me when I first came here, and there was a faction of people who didn't like 8, 9, or 10. Man, those were good times.

    It's extremely difficult for me to be excited about this one. I waited 10 years for 15 and look what happened...

    I'm thinking about creating a hybrid. A dolphin-monkey. Half dolphin, half monkey. Do you think it's possible?
    I was thinking that since I'm artificially creating it, I'll create it with rocket fuel instead of blood, and thus it will be able to fly, using the dolphin's dorsal fins as wings. And from the air, it will look down upon us all and protect us against sharks, and search for bananas.

    I follow anything FF7R related very closely and can tell you all what I've learned.
    The game has already been in production for 5 years.
    The games custscenes and voice acting for both English and Japanese have been completed for some time (first installment)
    The game will be released in multiple full size parts (akin to FF13 series)
    A lot of effort has been made making this remake with longtime fans in mind
    SE stated that "2019 is the year for FF7R"

    We are highly likely to receive a big reveal within the next 2 - 3 months, confirmed to be prior to E3

    There is a lot to be excite about.

    It's officially confirmed it will be episodic, so yea, the first episode just might release this year.

    Just to clarify, episodic can seem like its going to be a 'telltale' series.
    When it was first announced it was going to be episodic, it was an error in translation and that the game being release in 'parts' akin to the XIII series is what was intended to be expressed.

    nix: XIII 1 was a complete story, more or less. I soldiered all the way through it, and although I wasn't super thrilled with it, I'd consider it a complete game. I assume the other two were, as well. Based on that....

    Rowan: Does that mean that they're gonna split FF7 up into separate games, somehow, then?

    FF7 hallway simulator coming soon!

    I can see it getting broken into chapters that are shorter in length than the discs. I can also see myself getting very pissed off with having to wait an ungodly amount of time to get the next chapter.

    It's bad enough when you have to wait for a sequel, it's going to really suck to wait 5 years for disc 2 of a game that's old enough to have a beer.

    Just wait for all the "episodes" to be released and buy the "complete edition" that will no doubt be released, you will save a small fortune and also help deter them doing stupid episode bullshit for the future

    But eh yeah, im guessing the first episode would end on the escape of Midgar, and if thats the size they are going to make the episodes, there will be a crazy amount of them before they get through the game

    I'm picturing a cutscene with Sephiroth's blade milimeters from Aeris, and all of a sudden it flashes to black. A mog sitting on a chocobo appears and tells you to wait for the next installment.

    I'll probably wait for the full version to come out. Remastered for the third time, game of the year 1997- 2027 30th anniversary edition to come out. On PS6.

    Edit: I'm not sure if I would prefer it to have all of the additional lore involved or for it to stick to the original story with maybe some extra sidequests or collectibles

    Exactly. Much like Pete and nix have been saying, its pretty much going to have an end point for each game, much like how the original had 'chapter' end points at the end of each disk.
    Story will be fleshed out to accomplish this and maybe it wont need so much fleshing out as there is already a lot of story to tell. I know they really want to focus on the characters of avalanche (Biggs, Wedge and Jessie) so that their inevitable deaths will be more impactful to the player. Theres a lot that can be accomplished in this remake both story and gameplay wise. Im just hoping they dont make any stupid decisions restricting character progression etc. If I wanna grind bolt3 before midgar zolom goddamnit this is a free country, I should be able to grind bolt3 before Zolom.

    I can see it being in 3 parts, Start to Exit of Midgar, Kalm to City of the ancients exit and then Icicle inn to rest of the game.

    But with the way they will likely make the game, a set path with no world map, they will likely gut the content in between each start and end point.

    Wutai quest line would likely be DLC, heck they may even make gold saucer DLC

    oh lawdy i do not see good things to come of this..

    I'm hyped for it regardless of the episodic nature it will have. FFVII is such a huge game in the first place but after having converted all that explorative world into HD 3d environments it's bound to take up a lot of physical data on a disk. I wonder if that's the reason they have to split the game up?

    Looking forward to the crossdressing scene in hd! Also, seeing the beautiful magic spells and summons in their remastered and reimagined states will be spectacular!

    I hope they rebalance some of the limit breaks. Some character greatly fall behind others because imbalanced limits late-end game. Vincent needs a better limit, Tifa's Final Heaven needs to be a multi hit(like 4x hit) so she can compete with Omni Slash, Ungermax, Highwind and Doom of the Living etc.

    I don't disagree with the idea of balancing out the limits, but I also hope they have a sliding scale for the difficulty.

    A few years ago I did a run through where I was determined to get Great Gospel. I think I was around level 65-70 by the end of disc 1. The rest of the game was kinda boring, and understandably so. I'd just like to see it balance out a little more at higher levels.

    That is definitely a high level for that point in the game! By the way when you say you would like there to be a "sliding scale difficulty" do you mean something akin to Final Fantasy VIII's idea of having monsters and some bosses level up to match the party average? That would be a wonderful idea actually. I'm a perfectionist on videogames so I hope they remake some of the rare items to be more easily obtainable from monsters. Getting the Mirror(from Dorky Faces) and the Earth Mallet(from Crater Gigas) among others are nightmarish tasks sometimes!
