Tetsuya Nomura, the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts IIIhas provided an update on the development status for both games in the latest issue of Famitsu.

When asked about Kingdom Hearts III Nomura said, "While I can’t make a sweeping statement because the development process is different from what we’ve done so far, there are still worlds untouched. Production is progressing on unannounced worlds, in a state that we cannot show them off. In terms of the state of development, there is still some way to go."

When asked about Final Fantasy VII Remake Nomura said, "We’re steadily progressing on production. While we are making them, I apologize that the wait will be be a bit longer for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake. I am very sorry, but to that degree I will make a game that will meet your expectations.

"Last year, I didn’t put out much information on either title, but this year I want to show our progress at an event somewhere. The release of the titles themselves have still have a way to go. But there are many titles releasing this year, if you can wait for any ‘surprises.'"

Thanks Gematsu.

Why announce them then when they're far away from release?

Harkins1721 (on 10 January 2017)

Because SE does this. Nomura has stated this many times in interviews. Hes a perfectionist. He likes things at a high level.

I haven't really played any Square Enix game(besides a little bit of Final Fantasy 7 and Deus Ex) but this guy sounds like a great developer, the right developer. And i'm excited for these projects as a newcomer to Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. I'm ok with waiting :)

If the Remake is anything like FFXV I'd rather they didn't finish it.

Out of curiosity: Did you think the game was bad, or did it only fail to meet your expectations?
