FF7 Remake Part 2: Even though Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 has a name and debut date, it’s still not clear when it will arrive on PC and what the story is about.
According to series director Yoshinori Kitase, who spoke at the Final Fantasy 7 25th anniversary Livestream, the second part of the remake will be called Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and will arrive on PlayStation 5 in winter 2023. Even if a PC version of the game isn’t announced until 2024, we’d be astonished if it wasn’t on the Epic Games Store and now Steam. Also, Kitase said that the FF7 Remake team is still working on one more game, but he didn’t say what that game is called or when it would be released. As it turns out, we got our first peek of FF7 Rebirth, which lends validity to the idea that the games take place in parallel timelines.
As shown in the video for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, Cloud and Zack Rain may be seen traversing the bleak countryside outside of Midgar. Part 1 ends with the death of Jesse, a former Avalanche member who perished in the original game and is heard conversing with Cloud over the sound of his voice. Jesse, on the other hand, appears to have no recollection of her previous life or death.
See for yourself in the video below:
Furthermore, the teaser shows Cloud and Sephiroth wandering through the woods, discussing what he feels Sephiroth’s ultimate goal is.
What’s actually going on is anyone’s guess at this point, though considering the trailer opens with a commentary on how the future isn’t set in stone, it seems pretty evident that the remainder of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake trilogy won’t be what anyone is expecting.
If you haven’t had a chance to go through FF7 Remake Part 1, we highly recommend it. Since it was released on Steam as well, you may play it right away on your Steam Deck if you so want
