Despite it finally reemerging on Sony’s State of Play presentation on Thursday with a new trailer, details about Final Fantasy VII Remake are still scant.
Following the trailer’s debut, Square Enix sent out a Japanese press release, and according to Siliconera, the game will remain as a “multi-part production” with more information coming in June, presumably E3 2019.
Most of the plans are already in place in the run up to launch, so please bear with us a little longer until we can release more information next month – Tetsuya Nomura #FF7R pic.twitter.com/LLMqWw8e9x

Director Tetsuya Nomura has also reassured fans via Twitter that more details will be coming in just a month’s time.
First announced back in E3 2015 on Sony’s stage, the Final Fantasy VII Remake has gone quiet for a substantial amount of time before this week. While we do know that the developers have stated that it will be released in parts, this week’s presser reaffirms their original goal.
“It will essentially be a full-scale game for each part of the multi-part series,” producer Yoshinori Kitase said in 2016 via Game Informer, much like Final Fantasy XIII. “In XIII, each installment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense.
“Whereas with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn’t really make sense if that isn’t encompassed in a multi-part series… So if we’re just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game.”
The State of Play event featured plenty of other news, including more details on the MediEvilremake, a new Predator multiplayer title, a possum-centric survival game, a new PS4 console, and the massive Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World.
