The Final Fantasy VII remake team has announced that they are no longer outsourcing their work and have instead switched to complete in-house development, bound to have those wanting to lend a hand in producing the remake for the “best game ever” highly disappointed.

Square Enix had recently released recruitment messages from the core staff responsible for working on the Final Fantasy VII remake, however, a live-stream for smartphone game Mobius Final Fantasy unveiled that the development team has gone in-house instead – almost as if in response to all the complaints.

Naoki Hamaguchi has confirmed that he is still the project lead, additionally stating that Square Enix now want to control every aspect of the game’s creation to ensure the utmost quality, which will surely have relieved fans considering all their recent expertise with both in-house and outsourced smartphone titles.

The Mobius Final Fantasy live-stream:

The Final Fantasy VII remake is slated to launch on the PS4 sometime further along this timeline.

    God I wish they'd opted to just do a straight-forward Scene for Scene remake, with gameplay very much the same as the original (albiet bug-fixed and expanded)

    A Pokemon Fire-Red type graphical overhaul only.

    I mean, a complete "re-imagining" could potentially work, but think about it... Do you really trust the developers of Final Fantasy 13 to make something as good or better than the most popular JRPG of all time? Cus I don't.

    To add insult to injury, what everybody wants is also the easiest - just remake it as-is.

    It's gonna be "modernized" and "streamlined", which in 2017 terms means cut down to nothing and then completely fucking shit over the remains.

    As much as I hate to admit it, this is looking more and more like FF15 again....and we all know how shitty that turned out to be.

    So Cyberconnect 2, a company who has produced endless Naruto fighting games instead of RPGs was making FF7 Remake. That explains the questionable quality. Cyberconnect 2 lost their soul the moment they sold out to produce yearly Naruto titles.

    No my friend. Long before that. Releasing .hack games quarterly was far worse. It was the same game every time, just maybe 1-2 hours of story. This company is founded on stupid business practice.

    The .hack//g.u games were fine. They had plenty of story. I kinda liked the multi part approach.

    it's still extremely early in development. it's normal for things to change a lot.

    Not really considering that most parts are already done.
    Music is written, characters and story are set and so on.
    Hell even the character models already exist in a current engine.
    Biggest thing as of now would be world building.

    And you don't even know how to start your sentence with a capital letter, but let's all make sure we can blame someone for something completely dumb and unrelated to the subject at hand because this is how arguments work.

    There's actually no rational reason to follow any kind of rules for writing other than "someone said so". It's called convention and used to simplify things, sure, but it's also totally arbitrary!

    This does not alleviate the fact that the game will not be a Final Fantasy 7 game, other than being in the same world, having the same characters and having 1/3rd of the mechanics from original, everything else is out the window, literally.

    I'm planning on starting a facebook account to boycott the game.

    Good luck with that, I'm sure that will work and it's not childish at all.

    So I guess it's gonna be released around 2020 as a crossed generation title for PS4 and PS5 as one of the starting titles for the second one?

    I just hope I'll still be alive by the time this remake comes out because at the current pace that Square's working its release won't be before 2030.

    It won't even be a whole game if it ever comes out.
