Fans are continually hoping that this year, Square Enix will finally give updates about -- or release -- the “Final Fantasy 7” remake. It’s been years since the game company first announced the title, but since then all the fans have received are but short trailers and tidbits of information that aren’t enough to satisfy their cravings for it.

A new rumor, however, claims that new game details are soon to be released. As seen in a thread over at ResetEra, netizens are speculating that these new details will be released via Sony’s upcoming State of Play, which is slated to happen this week.

A game announced long ago

Sony itself said in a PlayStation Blog that the second State of Play episode will run for about 10 minutes only. During this short period of time, it said it will give an extended look on the upcoming “MediEvil” remake, reveal an all-new title, and also give updates regarding “upcoming PS4 titles.”

Although Sony warned excited fans to not expect anything about the upcoming next-gen PlayStation 5 console or any of its “next-generation plans,” it didn’t tell fans to stop expecting much when it comes to games.

A certain ResetEra administrator who goes by the name ZhugeEX said fans can expect to see a better State of Play episode compared to the first one. “We'll see updates to Sony games, a new title (as mentioned in the OP) and also the re-reveal of a third party game that was announced long ago,” the administrator said.

Fans who saw this comment got excited about the “re-reveal” of a game that was already announced a long time. Many of them believe that it’s a Square Enix title, particularly “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” owing to the fact that it was announced during E3 way back in 2015.


Now why did they think that it’s going to be “Final Fantasy 7 Remake?” It’s because of a tweet coming from the Square Enix’s very own executive producer, Shinji Hashimoto. Gematsu noted that Hashimoto retweeted Sony’s State of Play announcement. This tweet indicates that a Square Enix title might be shown during this State of Play.

Of course, these are but speculations until proven correct, and are best taken with a grain of salt. Stay tuned for more updates.
