The highly anticipated sequel of Final Fantasy 7 Remake has finally been announced. The sequel is titled Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth coming sometime next winter. This puts the release date between late 2023 and early 2024, assuming there are no delays, which seems unlikely nowadays.

The announcement was made during the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary Celebration yesterday. You can watch the entire event above.

Rebirth will arrive exclusively on PlayStation 5. A PC port wasn’t announced. However, given that after a while its predecessor was made available on PC, I am sure this title will follow suit. Unfortunately, an Xbox port seems highly unlikely.

Three Games in Remake Series

We know that Final Fantasy 7 Remake only covers a portion of the story of the original game. The same thing with Rebirth as well, not covering the entire game. Yoshinori Kitase, Executive Producer of the Final Fantasy 7 series, revealed that there will be three games in the remake series. The first is Final Fantasy 7 Remake, the second is Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, and an unannounced third game.

This means that Rebirth is the second game in the planned trilogy. Neither the title nor the release window of the third game was announced.


According to Tetsuya Nomura, creative director of the FF7 series, the development of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is going smoothly. Nomura confirmed that the development of the third game has already begun. Though we are sure that the third game is quite far away.

He also claims that Rebirth will be developed in a way that even new players can pick it up and still follow the journey.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is being designed so that people can enjoy this game whether they know the original game or not. Cloud and his friends embark on a new journey in this game, and I believe that the scenes that they witness after leaving Midgar will give players a fresh, new experience,” Nomura said in a statement.
