Final Fantasy VII remake update

If it takes longer than a year to make, it won't happen says producer

Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has said that if a Final Fantasy VII remake was ever to happen, it would have to take no longer than a year to make, otherwise it's not possible.

Kitase, who's probbaly bored of hearing about a FFVII remake by now, told TechDigest, "If it were possible that we had all the right facilities and the right environment to be able to make and prepare a Final Fantasy VII remake within a year, we'd very much like a go at it!

"But even Final Fantasy XIII has taken over three and a half years to create. If we were to recreate final Fantasy VII with the same level of graphical detail as you see in Final Fantasy XIII, we'd imagine that that would take as much as three or four times longer than the three and a half years it has taken to put this Final Fantasy together."

More bad news: "So it's looking pretty unrealistic! But if any such situation came about by any remote chance, then yes, we'd do it," he said.

By. Remote. Chance. Does that mean they might farm it out and get it up and running on the side?
