According to reports, Tetsuya Nomura, the Japanese game director of the "Final Fantasy VII" remake, said that his team is currently looking planning to provide solid information regarding the upcoming title.

Many fans were disappointed when the game developer failed to announce the title at the recently concluded Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 2016 in the middle of June. There were rumors circulating online prior to the event that Square Enix will make an announcement about it at E3.

There are also speculations suggesting that Square Enix will release the game next year, which is in time for the video game's 20th anniversary. However, this has yet to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, producer Yoshinori Kitase has already confirmed during an interview that the upcoming remake will have its own story. It will be a completely different game compared to the original title.

"It will essentially be a full-scale game for each part of the multi-part series. In XIII, each installment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense," Kitase explained.

"Whereas with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn't really make sense if that isn't encompassed in a multi-part series... So if we're just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game."

As of now, fans will have to wait for the game developer to provide any update about the development of "Final Fantasy 7" remake.
