Predict The Year We'll See Gameplay For The FFVII Remake

If I was a betting man, I'd say this game will never see the light of day.

But just for fun, when do you think we'll see actual gameplay of the Final Fantasy VII Remake?

I doubt it'll be this year and really, I doubt it'll be 2016. Maybe we'll see more tech demos and various other cinematic trailers but actual gameplay isn't something I'm anticipating any time soon. They've already said to expect "dramatic changes" to the classic gameplay formula, which has generated plenty of skepticism. I keep wondering if Square Enix will take into account gamer feedback (as they're trying to do with these multiple Final Fantasy XV demos), and make some sort of alteration based on that response.

Either way, I seriously doubt the project is very far along, and I'd be very surprised to see a gameplay presentation before 2017. But who knows? Maybe Square Enix will put the pedal to the metal on this one and we'll start seeing in-game combat early next year. That is, if the project even exists.

If by gameplay we mean "The Last Guardian" type videos, 2017. If we're talking actual gameplay, I'll go with 2024.

Hopefully not too much longer. The game's been in development for about a year already.

At first, I would've assumed a late 2016 reveal of actual gameplay. After hearing that "dramatic changes" news, however, I'm worried we won't be able to see any sort of actual gameplay any time soon.. not until late 2017 or 2018, I guess.

VII years for another trolling on Sony's E3 stage of the same video we seen this year. The game will probably go back to the drawing board because 80% of the way through development SE realise their vision is too big for current gen consoles. I'd say it will release somewhere around 2027.

2017 and no earlier. Just because they showed no gameplay.

A serious prediction would be E3 2017 and the game itself will probably come out in 2019.

It really depends on if they go with the same engine that FFXV is using...or if they are using a less intensive graphics engine...the game is already designed, composed, mapped out, and planned out story wise...there is no need to come up with 300 new enemies or 12 new characters or 100 never heard of NPCs...they are just taking the creative info and placing it into an updated engine with voiceovers. hell you could prolly use the same graphics engine as ff13 and people would be thrilled. its like the creators said about fallout...we are willing to put more effort and time into game play then graphics...because that's what makes a game successful. I would say gameplay late this year to mid next year. or at least a hint of what things are gonna look like.

I think we'll see small glimpses of gameplay by 2016 if not this year. But the real question is whether or not that will be a true depiction of the end product. Definitely not a full gameplay trailer, though.

I believe ff13 was about 4-5 year of actual "game production" not including story creation. FF15 was longer but really it was just on the slate at the same time as ff13 in 2006-2007...you also have to keep in mind sony may be helping to get this rushed out...since they way to increase sales in japan and this will help it do that!

Nomura did say...
“We haven’t put out any screenshots yet, but we’re making considerable progress, so please look forward to it. "

Realistically with an in-game engine look I think 2018.

I will be enjoying the next Dragon Quest before this is out, the JRPG is returning and I will be there with open arms for Persona 5, Kingdom Hearts 3, Star Ocean 5 and w.e Level 5 is cooking up.

It will take time since RPG games takes the longest to make.

I think S-E has realized that a 10 year development time isn't good for anyone.

It would be awesome if they could release the game in 2017 for the 20th anniversary of the original.

Lets be real folks! This game won't release until more than half of us have passed away, the entire development staff has been replace with the current development staff's grandchildren and the company is no longer known as Square-enix but instead CUBE-ENIX!
