Fans waiting for news on part two of Final Fantasy 7: Remake may get their wish next month.

If you can believe it, the 25th anniversary of the original Final Fantasy 7 is fast-approaching. This particular entry not only cemented itself as an all-time classic, but sparked a huge love of JRPGs in players across the world. Thanks to the release of Final Fantasy 7: Remake back in 2020, fans got to experience Cloud's story in modern and real-time action glory — well, only the first part.

There's a huge amount of FFVII's story that hasn't been told through the remake just yet, leaving fans to wonder just when we'll see its continuation. But, according to Remake director Tetsuya Nomura, more information is planned to be revealed next month during the original game's 25th anniversary.

Nomura shared the news during a livestream yesterday, which focused on the mobile battle royale Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier.

Previously, Square Enix had announced that they planned to reveal more about Part 2 during this year, but now we've got a more definitive timeframe.

As for Nomura, he'll be taking a step back from directing duties for Final Fantasy 7: Remake - Part 2 to serve in a more creative director position. Part 1's co-director Naoki Hamaguchi will instead be taking the helm in full.

Square Enix seems to have a number of projects in the works when it comes to Final Fantasy. Aside from the series' next main entry — Final Fantasy XVI — the studio launched a Final Fantasy 35th anniversary site, teasing that news of future games is on the way.

Final Fantasy VII: Remake is available now exclusive to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Windows PC.
