We’ve got some Final Fantasy 7: Remake news! Although not the news I’m sure you’re hoping for (cough release date cough) Ahem… excuse me. Gematsu is reporting that Square Enix has moved the production of the FF7: Remake from third-party to in-house. The news coming during a Mobius Final Fantasy live stream in which project lead Naoki Hamaguchi made the announcement that he would be taking control of FF7: Remake development.
“The information is already available online, but I’ve taken charge on the development side for Final Fantasy VII Remake,” Hamaguchi said. “As for the whole story, (it’s a sensitive topic, but) until now, development was moving forward with external cooperation, but the company has decided to shift to an internal setup, including mass production and quality, because we want to control everything, including quality, on a stable schedule. (I won’t be leaving Mobius Final Fantasy.)”
This is actually great news, in my opinion, as having the game purely developed in-house will help ensure the best experience from marketing to gameplay. In the mean time, we’ll be waiting anxiously for more info about FF7: Remake, and as soon as we know, so will you!
