Final Fantasy 7 Remake fans have had to wait a long time for an update from Square Enix on the hugely anticipated PS4 title.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake was first revealed almost four years ago, with news on the JRPG revival few and far between since then.
In 2015 the Final Fantasy 7 Remake was announced at E3, with a gameplay trailer later emerging at PSX.
Since then Final Fantasy 7 Remake fans have seen news dry up, with only a handful of new screenshots released in 2017.
But this could all be about to change soon, with the rumour mill claiming the Final Fantasy 7 Remake could be getting a big update this week.
It’s been rumoured that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake could appear during the upcoming State of Play PS4 broadcast on Thursday May 9.
The rumour was sparked by ZhugeEX, a ResetEra administrator and an industry analyst.
The ResetEra admin previously warned fans to temper the expectations ahead of the first State of Play broadcast.
But in a post online ahead of the upcoming State of Play ZhugeEX wrote: “Last time I said “Don’t expect much”.
“Well this one will be better than the last for sure.
“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.”
Alongside the post was a picture of Final Fantasy Shinji Hashimoto, which seems to suggest the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is the title getting a re-reveal.
Hashimoto-san has also been tweeting about the upcoming State of Play broadcast.
The Square Enix bigwig retweeted a tweet about the inbound PS4 Direct-style presentation.
Hashimoto-san later quoted a PlayStation tweet about State of Play and wrote alongside it: “Oh. You’ve come”.
Elsewhere the official Final Fantasy Twitter has posted a cryptic tweet which simply shows a screengrab of the original Final Fantasy 7.
It remains to be seen if the Final Fantasy 7 Remake does get an update in the upcoming State of Play Direct.
But Square Enix did previously hint that FF7 news could be inbound ahead of E3.
A comment in a recent Square Enix investor briefing said: “I cannot go into any detail at the moment, but I believe we will be able to make various announcements in the lead-up to this year’s E3.”
It had previously been hinted that 2019 would be a big year for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
In an issue of Famitsu at the end of 2018, director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase were asked about their plans for 2019.
Nomura-san teased that his keyword for 2019 would be “seven” while Kitase-san said his buzzword would be “long-awaited”.
