What’s really holding Square Enix back from giving the fans the game they’ve been craving for years? According to Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada, a better Final Fantasy game must be made first.
During a recent Q&A session at the company’s annual shareholder’s briefing, Wada was asked about the status of the Final Fantasy VII remake. His answer? “We’ll make a Final Fantasy VII remake once we’ve made a Final Fantasy game that exceeds the quality of FFVII.’
This is according to Andriasang, which also reported that the CEO would have to end the franchise after the release of this particular remake. In the eyes of Wada, the company has not made a game that’s surpassed Final Fantasy VII’s quality so instead of living in the past, Square is focused on creating a new, even grander experience.
These statements put a strange spin on the recent rumors of a Final Fantasy VII release on Steam. The reports look valid, but it’s unclear if that release would cause the demise of Final Fantasy.
