Final Fantasy VII Rebirth producer Yoshinori Kitase in the first developer comment posted on Twitter was asked how the development on the game was progressing. Kitase said development is progressing well.

"Development is progressing smoothly and according to plan," said Kitase. "We are currently working on nailing down a release date for the game."

Kitase is an interview from last July said the game is a PS5 is exclusive is due to the speed of the SSD.

"It's exclusive to PlayStation 5 because of the graphical quality, of course, as well as SSD access speed," Kitase said at the time. "Since the adventure unfolds in a vast world after the escape from Midgar, loading stress is an extreme bottleneck. We felt we needed the specifications of PlayStation 5 to overcome that and travel the world comfortably."

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch for the PlayStation 5 in Winter 2023.

Oh I'm sure it plays fine I just can't get into games when the graphics are that old and blocky. Something about that era of games it's hard for me to go back to. 2-d is much easier for me to adjust to. Like the FF6 pixel remaster was great.

You should look closer at FF9's graphics, if you think it's too old and blocky, it's aged superbly and this isn't the original version, it's remastered on PS4. Cartoony graphics of FF9 are amazing now and are better than most modern indie titles.

Trust us, it's a superb game and well worth your time.

Yea believe me I checked it out. Just something about that era of graphics it doesn't age well for me. Some people can still go back to it but I just can't. I don't doubt that it's a great game. I've only heard good things.

I also have trouble going back to games from the PS1 and even early in the PS2 era. .

Unfortunately, IX runs at 15 fps in battles and that's locked to the engine speed AFAIK. It can be really distracting.

"rumoured PlayStation exclusive final fantasy9 remake"
Legit couldn't think of anything worse, FF9 does not suit button mashing gameplay.
