Square Enix will make announcements regarding the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy 7 next month.
It’s possible June’s announcements could include the reveal of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2, since Square Enix has previously indicated that it would like to share details on the sequel during this anniversary year.

2022 is not only a milestone year for Final Fantasy VII, but also the series itself, and publisher Square Enix recently said it intends to release several new games this year but that its plans are centred around its most high-profile franchise.
Few details have been revealed on FF7 Remake Part 2 so far, other than confirmation last year that Naoki Hamaguchi, the co-director of FF7 Remake Part 1, will take over full directing duties for the follow up as Tetsuya Nomura takes on a broader creative director position.
Nomura has also said that, compared to last year’s Intergrade re-release, that Part 2 will make more use of PlayStation 5’s unique hardware features.
Square Enix recently launched a Final Fantasy 35th anniversary site, which is teasing that news of future games is on the way.
“In this 35th anniversary year, we will be bringing you many exciting new ways to enjoy the worlds of Final Fantasy”, the site says.
Boosted by launch of the game’s Endwalker expansion in December, sales of the MMO helped to offset a decline in the company’s ‘HD Games’ segment, where titles like Outriders and Guardians of the Galaxy failed to meet expectations.
