‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ Release Date, Latest News: Square Enix’s Upcoming Title Is an ‘Action’ Game
It looks like video game fans will not be seeing a release date announcement for “Final Fantasy VII Remake” anytime soon. But the title’s development — which is now officially categorized by Square Enix as an “action” game — seems to be in full swing.
This latest update came from an unusual (but not totally strange) source of information: a job listing from Square Enix. As first reported by Siliconera, the video game company handling the development and future distribution of “Final Fantasy VII Remake” is looking for a 3D Computer Graphics designer to join the team.
However, probably the more eye-catching information is the fact that Square Enix’s job listing referred to “Final Fantasy VII Remake” as an “action” game. In the job description section, the company went on to indicate that they need someone who will be working with the “ Unreal Engine 4’s cascade particle editor (creation and implementation of battle, field, event scene BG, etc.)”
Furthermore, Square Enix enticed potential applicants by stating that they can “can play an active part” in the “core” team of developers working on “Final Fantasy VII Remake.” The listing then reiterated that the upcoming title is being “remade as an action.”
On the other hand, fans of the franchise should also not worry about losing some elements that made the video game franchise popular. It is unlikely for Square Enix to drop the role-playing game aspect of “Final Fantasy VII Remake.”
Siliconera also pointed out that “action game” is commonly used as a general term to refer to titles similar to “Final Fantasy VII Remake.” But there is also a great chance that “Final Fantasy VII Remake” is going to be more like an action RPG.
Square Enix has released several teasers for “Final Fantasy VII Remake” but not a specific release date. Considering that the company is still adding more developers to the team, it is safe to speculate that the game’s development is going to take even more time.
