Square Enix has moved development of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake from external developer CyberConnect2 to its in-house team.
Two years later on from its reveal, we still have no idea when Final Fantasy 7 Remake will launch.
CyberConnect2 is the studio behind the long-running Naruto series of games, as well as .hack and Asura's Wrath.
"I've taken over the development side of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake," Hamaguchi continued. "Up until now, development has progressed by receiving external collaboration, but from here on out, with production and quality in mind, we're shifting to our in-house organisation.
"This company decision was made wanting to control quality as well as keeping the schedule stable."
No further details on the game's release were given.
