Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Director Offers An Update On The Development Of Third Entry In The Trilogy

The director of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has offered an update on the development of the third entry in the trilogy.

Speaking during an interview with YouTuber  Julien Chieze, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth director Naoki Hamaguchi has stated that, in terms of presentation, the development team behind the Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy has already made progress on the third game’s script. He added that the third title’s development is now in a situation that is similar to where Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was at the end of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s production.

From the looks of it, development of the Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy is moving steadily and in accordance with Square Enix’s plans. Going by the time duration between the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the third entry in the trilogy is likely to be released sometime in the year 2028.

Previously, during an interview, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth co-director Motomu Toriyama stated that open-world role-playing games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt served as the the basis for some extensive research during development. He mentioned that the development team looked at it as a baseline, so that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth could be a game that can stand alongside it and have the type of content that would be satisfying to its players.

When asked about his favorite role-playing game outside of the Final Fantasy series, director Naoki Hamaguchi mentioned The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt without hesitation. As such, it’s clear that, at the very least, two of the three co-directors of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth are fans of CD Projekt’s action role-playing game. Hamaguchi also mentioned that the development team wanted to give players the freedom of choice in deciding whether they wanted to dedicate themselves solely to the main storyline or delve into the side content and go really in-depth into the character relationships and understand the story from a deeper perspective. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth gives players the freedom to experience side content at their own pace.
