1st game should have been Aerith, 2nd game should have been post-Aerith. I’m excited by the idea of (what I am presuming will be) a dense, handmade, open-world Midgar, but Midgar is like under a half of the first disc, and they’re stretching it across 2 whole blurays. If they want the rest of the game to be as dense, you’re talking 4 or 5 parts, and like what, 8 to 10 discs?
Also, have they really not planned the second part? When is it going to release then? If it’s as dense as the first part, and they haven’t even started making it, that means it’ll come out in like 2023 or something. If the game really is going to have 4-5 parts, the last part won’t be out till like the 2030s, and god knows what will happen between now and then.
And what about other projects? If they’e going to be working heavily on the VII Remake for the next decade, how will they make other games?
It’d be awesome to be able to play a game this massive and ambitious, but is it really necessary to do this much work for the game to be good and worth playing? I really don’t think so. Based on the little we know, this approach just seems kind of insane, but maybe it’s not as bad as it looks.
