As part of today's big 25th Anniversary Celebration stream for Final Fantasy VII (7), Square Enix revealed the name and date for the second part of the Final Fantasy 7 remake.

Part 2 will be titled Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and will continue the story that began with Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. Square Enix says that they are targeting a winter 2023 release for the PlayStation 5 with Rebirth.

Though other platforms were not announced, it's probably a safe bet to assume that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be exclusive to the PlayStation platform for at least a year before making its way to other platforms. And if Rebirth follows what part 1 did, it will then be a six-month Epic Games Store exclusive on PC before hitting Steam.

Square Enix has also confirmed for the first time that the Final Fantasy 7 remake will be a trilogy of titles. Don't even try to guess as to when the third part will be released, because that's so far off in the future the world may have ended by then. The first part of this trilogy was initially released back in 2020.

FINAL FANTASY VII remake series Creative Director, Tetsuya Nomura said, “As revealed on the broadcast, there are currently four FINAL FANTASY VII projects being developed in parallel. Although each of the four titles plays a different role, they are all connected through the high-quality depictions of FINAL FANTASY VII’s world and characters. As someone who was involved with the development of each and every one of the original titles, I deeply understand the vision and thoughts behind each project, and I am actively involved in the development process for all four titles.

FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH is being designed so that people can enjoy this game whether they know the original game or not. In fact, new players might even enjoy starting their FINAL FANTASY VII journey with FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH. Cloud and his friends embark on a new journey in this game, and I believe that the scenes that they witness after leaving Midgar will give players a fresh, new experience. I can’t wait to share the intention behind naming the first title, “REMAKE,” and the second title, “REBIRTH.” In time, I hope to reveal what the third title will be called, and where this journey will ultimately lead.

The development of FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH has been progressing rapidly since we adopted a new development structure. A title of this scale in which everything is interconnected even before production began is truly rare. In fact, some development has already begun on the third title. I myself have started on the development and am working towards the completion of the series.

We will work to deliver this title to fans with the same amount of enthusiasm from now until we reach the finish line. In the meantime, please enjoy the other 25th anniversary projects that further expand the world of FINAL FANTASY VII.”
