How To Watch Final Fantasy 7 25th Anniversary Stream

The June 16 stream celebrates the 25-year anniversary of FF7, so naturally everyone is hoping to see Remake Part 2.


The Final Fantasy VII 25th anniversary livestream starts today at 3 PM PT, which is less than half an hour away. The event will be relatively short, running for only 10 minutes, but Square Enix is hyping it up. The publisher has promised it will feature a lot of information about the sub-series. We don't know what we'll hear--if anything--about Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, but there's a chance it will show up, while rumors also suggest that Crisis Core could make an appearance in some capacity. Final Fantasy VII Remake, meanwhile, still isn't available on Xbox, so there's a broad range of announcements that we could hear about. Below, we've rounded up the details you need to know about the FF7 25th anniversary broadcast, including the start time, what to expect, and how to watch it live.

How to watch Final Fantasy 7 Anniversary Broadcast

The Final Fantasy 7 Anniversary Broadcast will be broadcast on Square Enix's official Twitch and YouTube channels. We'll also be streaming it here on GameSpot--you can watch right on this page in the video embed above or head over to GameSpot's YouTube.

What to expect at the Final Fantasy 7 Anniversary Broadcast

With a runtime of 10 minutes, whatever information on new games Square Enix provides will likely be limited. However, there are a few titles that will likely be mentioned, including mobile battle royale Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier and the upcoming episodic title Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis.

The highest-profile game, however, is Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, which has not seen an update since it was teased at the end of June 2021's FF7 Remake Intergrade. If Square Enix was going to provide an update on Part 2 this summer, a presentation like this would be the time to do so.

However, it's also possible that this is simply a celebration of Final Fantasy VII's 25th anniversary and no news will be shared at all--despite what the social media posts say--so keep expectations in check.
