A few months ago, Square Enix told their European investors that it was likely Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake wouldn’t be released until 2018 at the earliest. Today, the publisher has revealed that even that forecast might be too optimistic.
During Square Enix’s most recent quarterly financial report, President Yosuke Matsuda discussed the company’s upcoming lineup and once again stated that Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake, as well as The Avengers Project, wouldn’t launch in 2017. But then he went on to add, “We plan to launch each of these upcoming titles in the next three years or so.”
Yikes. That means there’s a very real possibility that some combination of Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and/or The Avengers Project could be pushed back all the way to 2019.
Hopefully Square Enix has better news about their 2017 release schedule at this year’s E3 Expo, which kicks off on June 13, just a little over two weeks from now.
