Square Enix has told fans that the development of Final Fantasy Versus XIII is "progressing well" - but that it's not currently working on a FFVII remake.
Speaking to the Korean gaming press at a FFXIII event last week, producer Yoshinori Kitase said:
"[FF Versus XIII is] taking some time, but development is progressing well. We plan on showing it at the appropriate time. We have the FFXIII localisation and FFXIV, so I believe it will come after that."
However, on the subject of the much-requested FFVII remake, the news was less optimistic.
"We've gotten this question [of a remake] a lot from many countries," added Kitase. "To make FFXIII at this level of quality, it took us three to four years.
"If we were to make FFVII in the same style of FFXIII, it would take ten times as long, so it would be difficult to take it up immediately. However, we always keep in mind how often this is requested."
Let's keep on requesting, it, then...
