Quite possibly the most self-indulgent decision a game company has made.

And before someone says "What we got wouldn't have worked!", just know that the scope of the remake project didn't have to be this large. It could have been a bit smaller. It didn't have to be open-world.

This is was a decision they made that increased the development costs of the games, which increases the sales expectations, and actively increases the barrier to entry (3 games to play, ~12 years of wait time, and the whole thing is already a remake).

    The worst part is how Rebirth combat is almost identical to Remake combat and in 4 years we'll have yet another identical combat system, lmao. 8 years of the same old shit. Even the story ended up mostly being the same as the original game with a few new cutscenes hinting at something different, so it's not even exciting to play for that. What a blunder.

      True. Another issue with making it a trilogy is that the combat can get a bit boring.

      Rebirth's combat is nice, but there's only so much they can change for three games.

    It's a huge marketing bait.
    Unfortunately for SquareEnix people don't make the same mistake 2 times. And so ff7 rebirth flop

      Even if it was just marketing, it underlines their mistake in thinking Final Fantasy and VII are still as popular as they once were.

    It didnt have to but they went anyway because they are ambitious and wanted to realize their full vision. They expected the players to be like "ok, let them cook" and to join them in this Journey, but they forgot their fans are autistic

    As for if it was justified, rebirth pretty much proved it being a trilogy was a great decision and they can tackle the story calmly and expanding everything.

      They wanted to make money. I don't buy they care more about their vision than money.

      The fact they're making changes to the entire company proves this.

      They thought they were gonna earn bucketloads of money with each entry, instead they killed the entire FFVII saga. Best thing now is to do a Hideaki Anno and postpone the last entry for a decade to drive up interest again.

      Best thing to do is get it over with and move on. They spent almost the same amount of time on this dumbass project as they did on Fabula Nova Crystalis or w/e. Let that sink in.

            Dunno about that, i like it. The idea of playing around denial of aerith death is fantastic and it plays both in player and cloud. It wasnt even present in the original.

              If you're just talking about this narrative thing, then they could have done this on a smaller scale too.

                Maybe the thought it would be fun to realize the entire thing in 3 full games and see everyone and everything with its proper scale.

                Suck a dick. It cannot even hold a candle to the original because the "remake" is inherently derivative.

    Personally, I'm fine with it.
    Rebirth is such a large game, and the cliffhanger is good enough to leave people speculating on. That being said, they really need to lean into the new stuff in the last entry. If their goal really was to tell a new story and make a sequel, part 3 is the time to let that shine through. I'll be disappointed if it's another 95% the same game / 5% new shit. Give me a 50/50 split, or even better 20/80. Really make it something new that makes people want to play it to see the new story.
