The co-director of Final Fantasy VII Remake announced via Twitter that there will be an announcement at a concert over the weekend. The PS5 version of the remake may be confirmed there.
Motomu Toriyama, the co-director of Final Fantasy VII Remake, reached out to fans today with a video message. There he announced that new content for the highly regarded remake would be announced at the next Orchestra World Tour concert. The concert will take place on February 13th at 9:00 a.m. CET and can be followed in the live stream.
In the exact wording, he said: “There will be a special part of the concert where I’ll make an appearance and talk about a few FF7R contents to be revealed only during this event, so please tune in!”

This confirms the assumption that there will be an announcement at the concert. Last week we reported that the producer of Final Fantasy VII is there with a guest appearance. It is now known, however, that it will not be Yoshinori Kitase himself, but the co-director.
In the past, the release dates of Kingdom Hearts 3 and the first Final Fantasy VII Remake were announced at concerts of this type. Since the release of the second new edition is still a long way off, we consider the announcement of the PS5 version to be the most likely. A first trailer for the second episode would also be possible.
In any case, you can expect a lot from Square Enix at the moment: On Saturday, a new expansion of the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV and a PS5 edition were presented and the announcement of Life is Strange 3 should take place in the near future.
In addition, the Japanese game publisher recently applied for trademark protection for several names that are related to the seventh part. A spin-off may already be in development.
Final Fantasy VII is currently available for PS4 and will be released for PS5 later this year. A PC version can also be expected.
