Square Enix Announces Conditions for a Final Fantasy VII Remake
It is not confidential information that Final Fantasy fans desperately want a remake to the beloved Final Fantasy VII. Entire threads have been dedicated to the topic, petitions have been sent, and there has been plenty of begging. Yet, Square Enix has remained fairly silent, aside from a stray comment every blue moon, about the possibility of such a remake, until now.
Recently, a CEO named Yoichi Wada announced that a Final Fantasy VII remake will not be made until the game is topped by another Final Fantasy game. This was announced at Square Enix’s annual shareholders meeting. Wada also admitted that he felt that the studios modern final fantasy games were at lower quality when compared to Final Fantasy VII, and if they made a remake before they made a superior Final Fantasy then the series would be dead. It seems that this CEO is less than happy with his studio, and that fans will just have to put their hope on Final Fantasy XV surpassing one of the most beloved games of all time… Now that must be stressful for the team.
It certainly does not look good for the Final Fantasy VII remake, but at least fans have a number of Final Fantasy games approaching quickly. Now, whether this piece of news is just the ramblings of a pessimistic CEO, or if it actually reflects the feelings of the company in its entirety, remains to be seen.
