On March 3, 2020, the first part of Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on PlayStation 4. It will be approximately 20 percent of the original and take place completely in Midgar. And it looks like it will be ported to the PlayStation 5 when that releases, probably, holiday 2020, or at least it’s subsequent parts will be. And this should come as no surprise given that only the first part is releasing next March. The other parts — which Square Enix hasn’t talked about yet — will release well beyond 2020, which will be PS5 not PS4 territory. That doesn’t mean the follow-ups won’t release on PS4, just that they will also be on PS5.
It’s currently unclear whether Square Enix plans on launching the first part on PS5 or just the follow-ups. It’s possible the first part will simply be released on PS4 and be playable via backward compatibility. Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PS4 and obviously PS5 as well.
In the most current and related news, Square Enix has confirmed that each part of Final Fantasy VII Remake will be comparable in size to a standalone Final Fantasy game. In other words, big. Meantime, the remake has a completely brand-new cast of voice actors, including for Cloud Strife.
“Final Fantasy VII Remake is a reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre, diving deeper into the world and its characters than ever before. The first game in this project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that provides a great starting point to the series.
