Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Kingdom Hearts 3 Still Years Away From Release

2020 will be a cool year for Square Enix.

Final Fantasy VII might be urgently recruiting team members, but that doesn't mean development time will speed up. According to Square Enix's financial summary, Final Fantasy 7 Remaster and Kingdom Hearts 3 are still as far as three years away from a proper release.

Square Enix Fiscal Forecast

Square Enix presented the company's financial results briefing where Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda and Chief Financial Officer Kazuharu Watanabe revealed that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Kingdom Heart 3 releases are slated as part of their Fiscal Year 2018 and beyond plans. Both titles have release dates set for "To be announced."

So while the core Final Fantasy 7 team is rapidly scaling up for the coming production cycle, it will still be awhile until players will be able to play the long-awaited remastered game. Director Tetsuya Nomura even mentioned the size of Square Enix's development team as a key component for Final Fantasy 7's successful development.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced at E3 2015, while Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced at E3 2013. Since then, both games have been discussed regularly at Square Enix, but it's still a little disheartening that both games are still so far away.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is set to come out for the PlayStation 4, while Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced for both the PS4 and Xbox One.
