More news about the Final Fantasy 7 remake is leaking through, specifically that it will run on the much-hyped Unreal Engine 4.


After gamers everywhere went bat-shit insane following the announcement trailer at the Playstation Experience a few days back, more info has surfaced about the classic Final Fantasy 7 remake.

We now also know that the game will release as a “multi-part series” to apparently avoid condensing it. This basically means that it’ll be sold in instalments, as opposed to one complete package.

Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase spoke about the game using Unreal Engine 4:


We realize how special Final Fantasy VIIis to fans, and we place our trust in Unreal Engine 4 technology and tools to help deliver this long-awaited remake, crafted for modern platforms. Working with the team at Epic and having their support throughout this process was invaluable and we’re excited to bring the product of that collaboration to long-time fans and newcomers to the series.

There isn’t a release date for the first chapter yet, but we do know it’ll be coming to Playstation 4 first, with a possible release on Xbox One and Windows PC later.
