If you were feeling burnt out by how many Final Fantasy VII spin-offs we’re getting(and really, what’s too much?) then you might not be happy to hear that even more projects are in the pipeline.
According to Tetsuya Nomura, following the release of Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis, in addition to the battle royale spin-off The First Soldier.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase spoke about the game’s 25th anniversary. Kitase served as the director on the original Final Fantasy VII before moving on to a producing role for the remake.
“FFVII has re-emerged as the latest game in the series once again,” said Kitase, “With titles like Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier, and you can look forward to even more exciting new developments in future.”
“There will be even more new FFVII projects that started up after the remake coming in future too,” says Nomura. “This team sees the 25th anniversary as a waypoint on our journey with FFVII, and will continue pressing ahead to even greater things, so please keep supporting us going forward!”
We know that Square Enix plans on revealing the next chapter of Final Fantasy VII Remake this year. In 2020, the sequel was in full development but we’ve not heard a word since then. We last saw the characters of Final Fantasy VII in the INTERmission expansion that launched last year and introduced Yuffie and newcomer Sonon.
