However they failed to mention when it might be released, but last we checked it seems that progress on the game still has quite a ways to go, but if the recent reports are anything to go by, fans will have a considerably longer wait time. However, more information on the scope of Uematsu's role should come to light as we near the game's release.
Gamingbolt reported via The Lifestream on a recorded conversation between Yoshinori Kitase, Naoki Hamaguchi, and Tetsuya Nomura during the 30th-anniversary celebration of Final Fantasy VII. Kitase and Hamaguchi then reveal that they want the Final Fantasy VII Remake to launch before the franchise's 35th anniversary, which will be in 2023.
While Final Fantasy 7 Remake's release may be far off, that doesn't mean Square Enix won't at least give fans an update on its development.
Some of the topics that were discussed included changes that they are making in the Final Fantasy VII Remake and that the development of the game is progressing smoothly. This means that there's some additional context to the conversation about the release date that we don't have. In 2015, when a remake of Final Fantasy VII was confirmed to be in the works, fans worldwide were ecstatic to be able to revisit an old classic with modern graphics.
"Currently I am working on the FFVII Remake, and although Uematsu-san has been working on various titles, I haven't worked directly with him since FFX".
Beginning today, Sephiroth, the legendary antagonist of FINAL FANTASY® VII, comes to FINAL FANTASY BRAVE EXVIUS® alongside new FINAL FANTASY VII events, quests and more during the month of May.
