Final Fantasy VII remake producer stated that “the new world of FFVII has just begun” in its special announcement about the end of the year.
Famitsu recently published a collection of special end of year creating ambitions for 2021 from 110 developers, including one from Final Fantasy VII Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase (translation by Audrey):

In his special message to the fans, he mentions that «the new world of FFVII has only just begun ”and the developers are keeping pace with developments. He also asks fans to “please wait a little longer for more information.” Hopefully that means some brand new announcements coming next year.
The same Yoshinori Kitase appeared with Cloud’s Buster Sword then Final Fantasy VII Remake won its grand prize at the PlayStation Partner Awards 2020 Japan Asia. Square Enix also announced Change has shipped over five million copies worldwide, digitally and physically. The game is now also the best-selling digital game Square Enix ever developed on a PlayStation platform. In other news, both Aerith and Sephiroth’s mocap actors recently completed a four-hour session together.
As revealed by the official Square Enix music account Final Fantasy VII Remake OST Plus was launched on December 23 in Japan. You can pre-order cheese here. And for more goodies, a new guidebook was launched in Japan with the title Final Fantasy VII Remake Material Ultimania. The book was released on October 29 and includes artwork, CG artwork, planning documents, storyboards, liner notes for the music, interviews with the voice actors and more.
The director of Change Tetsuya Nomura was the one who suggested the original Final Fantasy VII ‘s most shocking moment. As previously revealed, Final Fantasy VII Remake has many new elements in it, and the screenwriter Kazushige Nojima even explains how he rewrote Cloud for the new recording. We also translated comments from Nojima on how Final Fantasy VII affected Final Fantasy VIII. In an interview posted through Square Enix, co-directors Naoki Hamaguchi and Kitase talk about their reasoning behind making some bold changes to the remake of such a beloved game – namely why Sephiroth was introduced so early in the game. We also translated the short film that was made to market the remake. Square Enix is currently working on the second and possibly last episode.
Final Fantasy VII Remake finally released April 10 after a month of delay, and you can buy the game from Amazon here. Check out our extremely comprehensive review of the title here. I wrote a pretty comprehensive beginner’s guide for players just getting started (including some handy Materia and weapon building for Tifa), but you can also check out this incredibly intricate and damaging combination to see why the right character builds in Change.
