Final Fantasy VII Remake has made the news again recently, as a Famitsu article has revealed that the second part in the multi-game series has now entered full development.

Fans of the original will know that 2020’s Final Fantasy VII Remake told an expanded version of the first portion of the story presented in the 1997 original. Like a chocobo coveting some tasty Ghysal Greens, fans are hungry for more information about the next part of the story.

There are still a lot of unanswered questions about Part 2. When will it come out? What will happen in the story? Will new characters return? Without going full-speculation mode, let’s take a look at what we know about Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2. If you have yet to play Final Fantasy VII Remake, beware there may be spoilers ahead.

When will Final Fantasy Remake Part 2 come out?

We don’t yet know when the next part in the series will come out, but it’s fair to assume that the wait will be shorter than we experienced with the first part. While the first part took five years from reveal to release, Part 2 will likely use many of the same gameplay and graphical systems, meaning that development time should be a bit shorter.

What will it be about?

The second part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake project will cover Cloud and company’s pursuit of Sephiroth following their escape from Midgar. As the ending of Final Fantasy VII Remake diverges from the original story, we don’t know for sure how this second part will play out, but we suspect that the story will continue to introduce interesting changes from the original plot, including appearances from new character Roche, who’s second boss battle was cut from the first part.

When will we learn more?

With production on Part 2 well underway, we expect that we won’t have to wait too long for a first trailer. With the summer games events coming to a close its unlikely that this will come in the next few months but we’re holding out hope for some news before the end of the year.
