Final Fantasy 7 Remake may end up a cross-gen release

Reading between the lines: it'll be a while before we get the game in full.

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake sure is a peculiar one; while we know that it will be a multi-part game and that the first part, Midgar, will span over two Blu-ray discs, we don’t actually know how many parts the full remake will entail.

Because of that, Square Enix President and CEO, Yosuke Matsuda, has said Final Fantasy 7 Remake might make the transition to next-gen systems. Or, really, system.

“It’s the hottest topic at the moment and we thought you might ask us that,” Matsuda said (thanks, GameInformer).

“I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles. I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I’m not really concerned about that and I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles.”

Already confirmed for a PS4 release, we may get Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PS5 as well. As yet, there’s be no official love for Windows PC, Xbox One or even the next-gen Xbox, Project Scarlett.
