It sounds like we may get the first official details of Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 later this year.

The original game’s director Yoshinori Kitase was speaking during a livestream celebrating Final Fantasy VII‘s 25th anniversary. As per Video Games Chronicle, the producer offered the following message to fans. “In addition, with regards to the long awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake [Part 2]… there will be more information… this year if we can.”

Pressed on if that did mean an announcement this year, Kitase seemed to confirm it would. “Well yeah. We just started the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, so we want to celebrate and get fans excited, so within the next 12 months we want to share some information. Look forward to more information!”

Meanwhile, the series’ official Twitter accounts have shared messages from both Kitase and the Remake’s creative director Tetsuya Nomura. The former said “We were honoured last year when it was voted as the third most popular game ever by gamers in a (Japanese) TV poll. That we could achieve something like that is very much thanks to all the support we have had from our fans over the long years. Thank you so much.”

Nomura offered similar sentiments, while perhaps hinting at future instalments. “And there will be even more FFVII projects that started up after the remake coming in future too. The team see this 25th anniversary as a waypoint on our journey with FFVII, and will continue pressing ahead to even great things, so please keep supporting us going forward.”

Last year, the Final Fantasy VII Remake got a PS5 upgrade and a Yuffie-focused expansion. If there is indeed news about Final Fantasy VII Part 2 later this year, we’ll keep you in the loop.
