Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2: everything we know so far
If you've finished Final Fantasy 7 Remake, you may be wondering when Part 2 of the game will be releasing.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a re-imagining of classic '90s JRPG Final Fantasy 7. But, rather than releasing the remake as one single title, developer Square Enix has opted to release the remake as a series of games instead – with the first part releasing in April, 2020.
While Square Enix announced in November 2019 that development on Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 has started, the company hasn't confirmed a release date for the second part of the game; and, unfortunately, we're expecting a wait of at least a few years.
While we wait, we've rounded up everything we know about Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 so far, including news, rumors and what we're hoping to see in the second game.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? The second part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake
- When can I play it? TBC
- What can I play it on? TBC but likely PS4 and PS5
- How many parts will Final Fantasy 7 Remake have? This hasn't been confirmed
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 release date
While we know that Square Enix has already started work on Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2, the developer hasn't confirmed when it will release. But it looks like it'll be a while before we get to play it.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake didn't release until five years after it was announced. However, we're not expecting another five year wait for part 2 as Square Enix has now built the foundation of the game. In addition, a a Square Enix representative told IGN that "the development team is planning the volume of content for the second part of the series, and that the team anticipates that the development of the second game will be more efficient".
While we don't think we'll be waiting for not waiting as long as five years, it will definitely be a few years before we see the second part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Square Enix has previously compared Final Fantasy 7 Remake to Final Fantasy 13 – which released (essentially) in three parts, with roughly a two year gap between each of the entries. If Final Fantasy 7 Remake is going to be anything like that, then we're looking at around a two year wait until part 2 – meaning we may not see it until at least 2022.
