Final Fantasy VII is a game fans have been wanting a remake for since probably around the era of the PS2. Final Fantasy X really drove home just how far 3D gaming had gone since VII first graced the PS1 back in 1997, and suddenly those ridiculous polygons utilized on FFVII weren’t looking so pretty. The game was announced to be officially remade some time ago, but as with most SquareEnix projects, subject to few updates.

This is the case with the Final Fantasy VII Remake. It’s often said that “no news is good news,” but in the case of video games and movies, no news means that the project has slowly been pushed back into development hell and we’ll probably never see it again. As such, fans began to fear the worst for this game, as very little has been revealed as of now, apart from that badass trailer from 2015.

With E3 2018 now behind us, fans are wondering if this thing will ever hit, or if things are going poorly for production. In an interview with Dengeki PlayStation (translated and recapped by KH Insider), the game’s director, Tetsuya Nomura, addressed these concerns, saying that the remake is going well, despite the misinformation out there stating the contrary.

Additionally, he said they’re intentionally keeping things on the downlow with the game because they’re trying to prioritize Kingdom Hearts III and other titles from SquareEnix.

Sadly, there is still no release date for this game, and who knows just how honest the guy is being, but at least he’s addressing concerns, right?
