Final Fantasy 7 Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase recently said that the next part of the FF7 story will continue as FF7 always has.
The quote comes from the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Ultimania book, and was translated from the original Japanese by a Twitter user who goes by the handle "aitaikimochi." You can see the tweet below.
Quote by Kitase on how different the #FF7R will be from the original story:— ☆オードリーAudrey☆ (@aitaikimochi) April 28, 2020
"We’re not drastically changing the story and making it into something completely different than the original. Even though it’s a Remake, please assume the story of FF7 will continue as FF7 always has."
“Depends on how many parts the overall story will be," Nomura said. "If we divide the story into large parts, it’ll take longer to make. If we divide it into more detailed smaller sections, then developing it will be faster. I hope to release the next one as soon as possible.”
