ORIGINAL STORY 11am UK: Square Enix has shared a message from the creators of Final Fantasy 7 to kick off the game’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

This year also marks the 35th anniversary of the Final Fantasy series.

However, while the post notes that “even more new FF7 projects are in the works,” there’s no mention of the second part of Remake, which is what we’ve all been waiting for.

“FF7 has once again become the latest game in the series, with titles like Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier, and you can look forward to even more exciting new developments in the future!” said Yoshinori Kitase, director of Final Fantasy 7 and producer of the Remake project.

“And there will be even more new FF7 projects starting after the next Remake,” said Tetsuya Nomura, Final Fantasy 7 character designer and creative director of the Remake project.

“The team sees this 25th anniversary as a milestone in our journey with FF7, and it will continue to push us towards even greater things, so please continue to support us in the future!”

Following the remake, Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier is now available on mobile, and then there’s Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis, a remake of the original game coming to mobile later this year.

Beyond that, it’s unclear what those new projects will be, or when we might hear more about Remake Part Two’s release. Hopefully it’s not related to NFT.

Square Enix has also released new Final Fantasy 7 25th anniversary logos featuring Cloud, Sephiroth, and Zack Fair.
