Update 1:04 a.m.: Here are two, more detailed quotes:

"I'm being vague because I'm trying to think up my next excuse for delays."

"We will have some news that's not really news soon."

"We sort of kind of think we might know what we're doing but we're not totally sure."

Final Fantasy VII Remake Developers Tease Reveal in 2019

In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu several developers share their thoughts about the upcoming year, among them were Final Fantasy VII Remake Director Tetsuya Nomura and Producer Yoshinori Kitase.

Nomura-san’s Keyword for the new year is simply “7” and his message is “various plans will be announced.”

Kitase-san’s keyword is “Long Wait!” while his message for 2019 is “I’d like to try my best to respond to the expectations of the fans.”

His comment about 2018 was “We launched a collaboration between Mobius Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy VII! Of course, development of the Final Fantasy VII Remake is going smoothly!”

Kitase-san’s keyword will certainly resonate with many, considering that the Final Fantasy VII Remake has been announced all the way back in 2015. Many defined that show “the E3 of dreams,” and some of those announcements are indeed still dreams. This game is one of those.

Of course, we don’t know how many reveals will come for the game in 2019, and how extensive they will be. For all we know, the release date of the first episode might be closer than what we think. Publishers like Capcom have been very successful at keeping their head down and making announcements only when the launch is relatively close, and Square Enix might have learned the lesson. Time will tell, but a man can dream.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake has been announced only for PS4 and doesn’t have a release window just yet.

Square Enix has not learned the lesson. If anything, it's the exact opposite. They're usually tripping over themselves to announce ideas that haven't even completely been fleshed out yet. Then three years later, they've changed the whole project multiple times and still have no solid information to offer.
