Recently, Square Enix?s Kyohei Suzuki confirmed that he?ll be working on Final Fantasy 7 Remake as a game director. Potentially, the game’s production could be hastened with another director working alongside Tetsuya Nomura. Here?s what we know so far about the potential changes in the Final Fantasy 7 Remake release date.
Suzuki as FF7 Director
According to AttackOfTheFanboy?s translation of Inside-Games? report, Square Enix?s Suzuki has confirmed in a roundtable discussion that he?ll be working on the remake. If this is the case, this means the game?will have two game directors as Nomura is already working on the game. If the game has two directors, the game will potentially have faster production which could translate into an earlier Final Fantasy 7 Remake release date.
With a second director on board, the release date for the remake?may be announced soon. So far, Square Enix hasn?t talked about the game besides its initial reveals. The game has been confirmed to be released?in multiple full-sized games?similar to Final Fantasy 13. No news or official announcements have been made about the game?s first episode.
Final Fantasy 15 was just released last month, which means some workload has been taken off ?from Square Enix. The Final Fantasy 7 remake could have been focused now since the Final Fantasy slot for 2017 is now free. However, Square Enix is still working on Kingdom Hearts 3, which is also confirmed to be a large project. Currently, we?ve both yet to hear about?Kingdom Hearts 3 and the remake.?
As of late, Final Fantasy 15 leaks showed that there were cut content in the game leading to its early release. Apparently, this happened after the original vision of the game has been canned since the name change from Final Fantasy 13 Versus?to Final Fantasy 15 and a director change from Tetsuya Nomura to Hajime Tabata.?Longer plot, a larger world, and even more playable characters were confirmed in the leaks. Fans have also noticed some lacking or shoehorned experiences in the game. Final Fantasy 15?s Hajime Tabata previously confirmed the open world to linear gameplay experience which resulted in such quality.
Having two directors in one project could lead into creative differences. If Final Fantasy 7 Remake turns to be inconsistent in quality, the fans may not enjoy the overall remake. We can only hope that Square Enix is just aiming to improve the game and not rush its production for an early release.
