Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is the highly-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Final Fantasy 7 Remake. The game has a Winter 2023 release window and is currently exclusive to the PlayStation 5. Barring any major delays, Square Enix’s second entry to the FF7: Remake series stands among one of the most anticipated releases this year. And with that, gamers and fans of the storied franchise worldwide just couldn’t wait for more information regarding it. Well, lucky for you, we have some right here.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Will Have More “Freedom” 

In a recent interview, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth producer Yoshinori Kitase said that the game will have more “freedom” than the original. “With the PlayStation 5, we have a lot more freedom in terms of how we can create the game,” Kitase said. “We can create larger environments, more detailed characters, and more complex gameplay mechanics.” He explains that all this is possible because the developers now have more room for experimentation. Specifically, they no longer have to pay attention to the PlayStation 4 hardware. This means that they now have lesser constraints on what they can make.

Kitase also said that the team is taking advantage of the PlayStation 5’s faster loading times. This will allow players to explore the game world more freely and without having to worry about long-loading screens. According to him, Square Enix wants players to enjoy Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth at their own pace. They do not want them to be bogged down by frustrating loading screens. Admittedly, such can significantly affect the enjoyment of exploring the game’s wonderful world. Players can also expect a myriad of different stories given the higher degree of freedom experiencing the game.

Knowing all this, it certainly looks like Cloud and his friends’ journey across the wider world out of Midgard will be more grandeur than ever before. Yes, the first game in the new series was considered excellent by gamers and critics alike. However, it is worth pointing out that its linearity has constantly been in the discussions of where it is weakest. For everything we heard so far regarding Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, it seems such wouldn’t be a problem any longer.  That said, time could only tell if that really is the case.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Release Date

Apart from the Winter 2023 window Square Enix gave us when the sequel was first announced, the developers have remained quiet regarding any precise release date. In fact, many are now convinced that the highly-anticipated game may be pushed back to next year. This is considering the lack of new information the developers are willing to give out. That said, Square Enix notes that the team behind Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth are now trying their best in nailing down a release date. With that in mind, it is safe to assume that more news regarding the game will come in the next few months.


Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is shaping up to be a truly epic sequel. The game will feature a larger world, more detailed characters, and an even more robust action-oriented combat system. With its increased freedom and new features, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is sure to be a hit with fans of the original game. We certainly cannot wait to get our hands on it.
