Game news FF16 and FF7 Remake Part 2 soon to be revealed? The announcements for the 35th anniversary of Final Fantasy are coming!
When its first installment was released on a cold mid-December morning in 1987, the Square Enix franchise never expected to carry on its legacy for nearly 35 years. On this occasion, the Square Enix teams launched a dedicated site at the time of the Tokyo Game Show while promising a series of announcements for the coming year. As the summer conference season approaches, things seem to be falling into place behind the scenes to give us a double dose of Final Fantasy and maybe even more surprises!

Impending festivities for 35 years and the future of Final Fantasy
Since December 18, 2021, the Final Fantasy license has entered the year of its thirty-fifth anniversary, symbolized by a new logo. Before blowing out the candles for this new anniversary, Square Enix wants to mark the occasion and makes us dangle, for some time now, announcements and surprises that blithely take their time. We are almost halfway through the month of May, the 35th anniversary year will begin its second half, and still nothing crunchy to eat. However, this dead calm will soon make very big waves, according to the comments made during a recent conference call by the publisher.
At Square Enix, we seem to want to bet on a very precise timing regarding these announcements and surprises around Final Fantasy. It started gently, recently, with announcement of a clothing collection but all this would be about to accelerate. The E3 period has something to do with this timing because the publisher has just recalled that it intends to release several new games this year. To realize its ambitions for the 35th anniversary of its flagship saga, the Japanese company plans to make announcements this month or the next!
Final Fantasy XVI and the sequel to the Final Fantasy VII remake, two (very) likely candidates
Thanks to the report of David Gibson, analyst and investment advisor living in the Land of the Rising Sun, we were able to get our hands on information capable of stirring all fans of the eternal franchise. Among the candidates behind these surprise announcements, we obviously find Final Fantasy XVI and Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2: two games that seem well suited if we stick to certain statements by the company or its executives.
On the side of Final Fantasy XVIthings are seriously falling into place, as evidenced by the stories of the past few days. The next numbered part of the saga is about to give us news through a trailer. And we could even have a release date as a bonus!
Square Enix -said this FY3/23, it will release several new titles but year is centered around major franchise. Noted it is the FF 35th anniversary and expects news this month or next. Noted it had had seen FF16 trailer and had high expectations for the title. #FF16

Final Fantasy VII Remakehe remains more mysterious and we have to go back to a previous statement by producer Yoshinori Kitase to nurture the hope of discovering the rest of the adventures of Cloud and his band at a publisher’s conference next June. At the very beginning of the year, Kitase said that he wanted to unveil the second part during the year of the 35th anniversary of the license.. The coming month is likely to be long: an imminent reveal of FF16 and FF7 Remake Part 2, do you believe it?
