Story Highlights

  • The Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth team is reportedly deciding on the finalized release date for the project. Moreover, the development is progressing smoothly, as revealed by the producer Yoshinori Kitase.
  • No specific release window has still been confirmed, so the game may arrive in early 2024 or late 2023, but no delays are expected because of the reassuring words of the producer.
  • The tweet mentions this information as “comment 1,” hinting that we may see more tidbits of information in the near future from the development team.
  • The second installment in the trio of FF7 remakes is set to release on the PlayStation 5 in the winter months. An exact release date could be announced in the near future.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is a highly awaited entry in the chronicles of FF7 remakes, and the enthusiastic team behind the project has just clarified another important detail. The project’s release date has not been confirmed yet, but the producer has come forward on Twitter to quell the brewing confusion of the community with a major update. The team is reportedly working on nailing down an exact release date for the anticipated title.

The producer behind FF7 Rebirth, Yoshinori Kitase, has clarified that the game’s development is progressing smoothly despite the haunting silence by the devs. Moreover, the pieces of the puzzle are coming together as per the plans, lessening the chances of another delay or anything else going wrong in the future.

While a release window has been known for quite a while at this point, we could soon learn about the specific date for the entry soon. Unfortunately, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth devs have yet not affirmed whether 2023 is the expected release date since the old statement of “the next winter” could also mean the first three months of next year. Regardless, we could soon see more info about the alluring title if this is only the “comment 1” by the team.

In the past, it was suggested that more news for the enthralling remake would arrive by January 2023, but only static has been heard alongside radio silence till now. The team might be getting ready to reveal even more tidbits for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth after months of waiting. It was also confirmed in the past that the lore could differ from the original game in some parts of the remake. 

However, this is just the second part of the confirmed trio of Final Fantasy 7 remakes, hinting at a prosperous future for the remake series. Even the third entry in the trio has been noted to be in development alongside the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth project. This remake is taking three years to be brewed to perfection, but the third installment is expected to take even less time due to the new changes in the team’s development environment.

Making the middle part of a trilogy has its own challenges, […] Often these second installments become a favorite amongst the fans. In the same vein, we are aiming to make Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth an even more gripping and memorable experience than Final Fantasy 7 Remake.”

Some fans have been initially worried about the game’s development and how it was progressing all these voiceless months. Regardless, the team has satiated our curiosity, ensuring us that the upcoming remake is closer to release than we thought; hence, a finalized release date could just be around the corner.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is slated to release on the PlayStation 5 in the winter months, but an exact window still remains to be confirmed. The title may also arrive on PC Steam and Xbox Series family in the future, but it has not been officially confirmed yet.
