According to statements by Yosuke Matsuda, President and CEO of Square Enix, it would still be at least 3 years to launch 2 of the most anticipated games expected by the fans: Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III.
In a financial results report for the fiscal year ending March 31, Matsuda presented a slide in which the launch of various games was scheduled. “This slide shows our release lineup for FY2017/3 as well as for FY2018/3 and beyond. We plan to launch each of these upcoming titles in the next three years or so,” said Matsuda.
This could cause the 2 releases described above to occur until 2020, something that would disappoint many fans who were already looking forward to such games. Final Fantasy VII Remake was originally announced at E3 2015 and Kingdom Hearts III did since 2013.
Another interpretation is that “in the next 3 years” means that undated titles will come in each of the years to come. With Kingdom Hearts III in 2018, Final Fantasy VII: Remake in 2019 and the new IP of Marvel in 2020.
In the slide shown by the executive it is worth mentioning the all-new IP that the company is producing and with a license of Marvel, which is still not yet known, but has already generated a lot of expectation.
For now we can only wait for this year’s E3 2017, to be held in Los Angeles in just two weeks, to learn more about Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III. And you, are you waiting for them? Tell us in the comments below.
