Final Fantasy VII Remake Originally Had Plans for Two Games Instead of Trilogy

Culminating years of leaks and rumors, 2020 action role-playing game Final Fantasy VII Remake by developer/publisher Square Enix has debuted as a timed exclusive for PlayStation 4 consoles and received an enhanced version next year.

Square Enix recently revealed Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth, Part 2 of a planned trilogy of remake at 25th anniversary celebration event. However, dev team originally wanted to release FF Remake in two parts rather than an expansive trilogy.


In recent interview with Famitsu, director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase talked about how they were unsure at first about how many installments it would take for dev team to retell the entire classic Final Fantasy VII story.

Due to this dilemma, it took Square Enix so long to announce how many parts they are planning to release. Nomura originally wanted a trilogy but Kitase was in favor of two-part series, though he wasn't sure how many hours they require.


Once they figure out how much work is needed, Kitase agreed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake may conclude in a trilogy. Nomura also assured that FFVII Remake project will not expand more than three parts, which is enough to tell the story.

Final Fantasy VII Remake had a huge twist during its ending event and many fans are wondering whether Rebirth will do the same. Regardless of its changes, Tetsuya Nomura promises that you can join right in without playing FF7 Remake.
