I think we have written enough on the Final Fantasy 7 remake. Naturally, after the much-awaited release of the game, we have seen that people are already hoping for the next installment.
But it seems that the game is still in the early stages of planning. Hence, it might be some time till we some concrete evidence of a game being produced. So, let us look at what the developers are currently mulling over.
The Planning Stage of Final Fantasy 7
The developers have confirmed that the game is still at the planning stage and nothing has been solidified. Toriyama has said that since the first section of the game is situated Midgar, it was easy to construct since he knows this part like the back of his hand. But he said that since the next stage of the game will take place in areas which he has forgotten about, it will take some time. This is because he has to revisit the gameplay of the game to learn about these territories.
Now, the interview I am mentioning above was taken on March 19th. Hence, there is much possibility that there must have been some development in the development of the new chapter. But it can also be the other way around. This is because of the fact that the pandemic has forced people to work from their homes. It has also caused several notable titles to get delayed.
What are their plans for Final Fantasy 7?
The developers have stated that for the next instalment, they want the player to explore the vastness of the world. But it shall also be taken into account that this might lead to a compromise in the story of the game. Hence, we can expect a giant leap of faith when it comes to the next chapter of the game.
But one fact should not be discounted which is the success of the current game. It was revealed that the game sold about 3.5 million copies within the first three days of its release. Therefore, it gives Square Enix a whole lot of motivation when it comes making the game.
