Default When do you think it will be released?

I was watching a gamespot video about the remake and the game journalists were asked when they thought it would be released. One of them said Q3 2019 and that really struck me not because I thought it was impossible, but because I thought it was probable.

Unless Cyberconnect2 has 200 people working on this I simply cant see it coming out by 2017. Now the Playstation 5 can be expected around 2019 and absolutely no later then 2020. This may affect the release date.

Final Fantasy XIII was 3.5 years from its first trailer to release. But Im sure most of us are hoping for this remake to be more expansive then that game. Which of course means a longer period of development. But the PS4 is easier to make games for and this is a remake which should help alot.

My mind says 2020 but my heart thinks 2018

I'm hoping 2017, but 2018 is pretty likely.

Yep, 2018 seems the most likely outcome.

Gonna have to agree... 2018 seems most likely. 2017 just feels too rushed, and if they wait much longer than 2018, they'll start pissing off the fans.

Although... do we know how long it's already been in development? I could swear I read somewhere that things were further along than just having a trailer, and actual production had begun. Or maybe I'm dreaming.

This is the thing. We don't know just when this was started. If it was 6 months ago then I'd rather the release date be 2020 because I don't want a bare bones game. I think they've been at it for a while though so 2018 for me.

I believe it's been stated that the game has been in development for about eighteen months.

2018 would give it a 5-year timeline for development (started it 18 months ago) which I think is reasonable for a game of the scope of FFVII.

Nice to see people's expectations are realistic, at least on here.

I'm optimistic about 2017. It's been in development already for a while and he'll have something to show us at Christmas. Granted, Nomura's got his hands in the cookie jar here and he's not the most punctual person on staff...

Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

I'd say 2018, because I want to be original.
That being said, I would not mind them taking their sweet time about it in order to polish it (what's one or two more years to wait?), I wouldn't like them to rush it for the sake of the 20th anniversary.

Yeah, Nomura said they've had it in the works for a year and a half already before they showed off the trailer.

Unless you mean the end of 2018 as a release date wouldn't that actually be a 4-year timeline for development? As 1.5 years ago is early 2014, and 2018 -2014= 4.

I think the release date depends on how fast Cyberconnect2 is, how expansive are they actually making the game, and how quickly Square can finish FFXV in order to devote more staff to it.

If you look at the Grand Theft Auto series, they spare no expense and are rewarded for it. They spend 200 million making the game but get back over a billion in sales.

I really think this game has the strong possibility to sell 10m units again. Its going to release on the PS4 when the console will be at its strongest, maybe as cheap as $249, and there will already be 10s of millions of them in the wild - and then it will release on the Xbox One and then most likely PC. I can see it doing 6m on PS4, 3m on Xbox One and 1m on PC. At least. Theres no reason to spare any expense here. Finish up FFXV and Kingdom Hearts III and put all hands on deck with this thing.

I reckon it'll be 2020 and be forced to move to PS5, like how FF Versus XIII was supposed to be for PS3 but ended up moved to PS4 and having it's title and everything changed.

Similiar thing could happen to the remake, and *Half Sarcasm, half joke* who knows, maybe it'll be changed and be turned into the final chapter of the Compilation of FFVII *back to normal* since we all know how Nomura took forever with FFXV to the point where he left all together and Tabata took over.
