In an interview with Famitsu (via Gematsu), director Tetsuya Nomura said that there will be a longer wait for both Kingdom Hearts III and the Final Fantasy VII remake. Here are highlights:

On Kingdom Hearts III: “While I can’t make a sweeping statement because the development process is different from what we’ve done so far, there are still worlds untouched. Production is progressing on unannounced worlds, in a state that we cannot show them off. In terms of the state of development, there is still some way to go.”

On the Final Fantasy VII remake: “We’re steadily progressing on production. While we are making them, I apologize that the wait will be a bit longer for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake. I am very sorry, but to that degree I will make a game that will meet your expectations.”

On the lack of information so far: “Last year, I didn’t put out much information on either title, but this year I want to show our progress at an event somewhere. The release of the titles themselves still have a way to go. But there are many titles releasing this year, if you can wait for any ‘surprises.’”
