Final Fantasy VII Remake delay does not affect Part 2 debut
The month-long postponement of the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake will not affect the debut of the second part of the long-awaited RPG. Yosuke Matsuda, president of Square Enix, said this at a meeting about the studio’s financial results.
Despite this, the executive did not reveal any new information about the second episode of the Cloud saga. Thus, the date or launch window for the continuation of the story still remains to be seen.

As announced at E3 2015, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released in episode format. Thus, Part 1 arrives on PS4 on April 10 and will explore the events of the Midgar arc as seen in the original game released in 1997.
In June last year, producer Yoshinori Kitase confirmed that part 2 was already in development. At the time, he explained that the second episode would not take that long to be released, because all the game’s systems are ready.

Second part still on the current generation consoles
During the same meeting, Yosuke Matsuda revealed that Square Enix does not intend to release exclusive titles for PS5 and Xbox Series X in the coming years. According to him, the intention is to explore the backwards compatibility of consoles before creating games for the next generation.
The executive’s statement may indicate that the second part of Final Fantasy VII Remake is yet to be released for current generation consoles. Recalling that the first episode will be exclusive to PS4 for a year before arriving on Xbox One and PC.
