Final Fantasy 7 Remake Dev Is Working On A Next-Gen Action Game

Beyond the framework of existing action games.


According to a recent job posting, Square Enix is working on an unannounced action game for next-generation consoles. The company's Japanese recruitment website notes that it has openings in its First Development Division, including the opportunity to work on an upcoming next-gen title.

Square Enix says that the unannounced game is "aiming to realize a 'next-generation action game experience' that goes beyond the framework of existing action games, with an international team of creators from all over the world," as per Gematsu.

The First Development Division is working on the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake (now delayed until April 2020), and has previously developed the likes of Kingdom Hearts 3, SaGa: Scarlet Grace, and Romancing SaGa Re:Universe.

Next-gen consoles Project Scarlett and PlayStation 5 are both slated for release during fall 2020. Final Fantasy VII Remake, on the other hand, is due out much sooner on March 3, 2020 for PlayStation 4.
