In a recent interview with Japanese publication Weekly Famitsu, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura stated that "parts" of the former game, such as cutscenes, are further in development than those in the later title.

Further, he went on to state that the team – in regards to VII Remake – is currently "in the process of switching from outsourced development to development in-house", meaning that it would be a while until fans hear about any release window information.
