Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 3 Hints at Early 2028 Release Window

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the second part in a planned trilogy of remakes encompassing the original Final Fantasy VII, is right around the corner but it seems like Square Enix has already entered a pivotal stage in the early development of part 3. According to game director Naoki Hamaguchi, the third part is now on a similar development trajectory from the time Rebirth was announced before Remake, suggesting an early 2028 release window.

As reported by Metro, recent comments made by Hamaguchi indicate that development on part 3 of the trilogy is at the same point in development where Rebirth was shortly before the launch of Remake back in 2020. If the timing is the same, then we can expect the highly anticipated third entry to arrive in the release window of early 2028. Some fans pointed out that it could possibly be a cross-gen launch for PS5 and the inevitable PS6 at that time.

“No reason to think Part 3 won’t follow the same schedule as Remake – especially since they’re gonna be reusing the same engine and assets from Rebirth,” reads one comment on Reddit. “Plus they aren’t starting production in the middle of COVID-19. We’ll probably get a DLC episode starring either Vincent or Cid sometime this year or next, if I had to guess.”

A PS5 demo is currently available for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth that allows you to play as both Cloud and Sephiroth in the game’s opening chapter. Square Enix will soon update the demo to include a new episode that lets you explore Junon as well as improve the graphics. Fans began noticing that spoilers were already appearing online for the game ahead of its release, so we urge you to browse social media cautiously from now on if you don’t wish to be spoiled.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth launches on 29 February 2024 for PS5. Make sure you check out our South African pre-order guide and its various editions that you can pre-purchase right now.
