In February, Square Enix announced the Final Fantasy 7 Remake DLC, which will be available only for PlayStation 5. According to project leader Tetsuya Nomura, this was the last DLC for the game.
The FF7 Remake team is no longer planning on releasing content add-ons, but instead focusing on a sequel. More precisely, the second episode of the remake, which will continue the updated story. Nomura revealed this in an interview with Famitsu (official translation provided by VGC).
“Due to the nature of the update system, we had to mark the new chapter with Yuffie as ‘DLC’. However, the original intent was to create a PS5 version of the FF7 Remake, not release DLC. Accordingly, we currently have no plans for a DLC,” he said.
Nomura also noted that working on the PlayStation 5 version of FF7 Remake made things easier for developers:
“Thanks to FF7 Remake, we figured out the PS5 development environment, which made the transition to creating a sequel a lot easier. Our focus is now on the roadmap for completing the next game. Therefore, if we really think about more DLC, they will probably appear after we finish with this project.”
Nomura himself will step away from working exclusively on Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and will now look after the series as a whole.
