News on the JRPG revival has dried up as Square Enix brought development for the game in-house.
Major events, such as E3, the Tokyo Games Show, Paris Games Week and PSX 2017, have been and gone with no announcements on the FF7 Remake.
And fans have been dealt another blow as another major event is on the horizon which the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will make a no-show at.
Jump Festa 2018, an annual exposition in Japan, is just around the corner, with the event taking place on December 16 to 17.
The event is mainly focused on anime and manga, but game developers such as Capcom, Bandai Namco and Square Enix all have a presence there.
The latter recently revealed their line-up for Jump Festa 2018, Siliconera reported, and the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is once again not making an appearance.
The franchise will be represented by Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, and other games being shown include Dragon Quest titles and the Secret of Mana remake.
Matsuda also hinted at more Nintendo Switch support, claiming that it is “well suited to the mid-sized titles at which we excel”.
He said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans of the Final Fantasy series.
“I’m pleased to see that after 30th years, everyone continues to love the franchise.
“On behalf of the company, alongside our gratitude towards everyone, we’ll prepare several anniversary events.
“Since we’ll continue to evolve the series from next year onward, thank you very much for your continued interest in the Final Fantasy franchise.”
