At E3 2015 Square Enix officially unveiled that "Final Fantasy 7" would be remade with updated graphics, styles and features for the PS4. Since the announcement we've only received a handful of information regarding the title, but a new report has given fans a release window for the remake and its complete episodes.

According to Crossmap, the title along with its three fully completed episodes won't be available to gamers until 2019. While that may be disappointing to read, it doesn't mean that gamers won't see "Final Fantasy 7's" remake until that time.

A report from Youth Health Fan says that the earliest gamers may see the title could be in 2017. This might mean that the game will launch with one episode and the future episodes will be released at a later date. It could also mean that the game will arrive in 2019 with a bundled version including all three episodes and more.

While we know gamers may want the entire game rather than buying just portions of it, it is worth noting that these episodes will be massive in size and content.

Speaking with Dengeki Online, Yoshinori Kitase, producer of the remake and director of the original game, stated that "From the beginning, we thought a 'Final Fantasy VII' remake would be bigger than a single release." Tetsuya Nomura further added that since a single release would require things to either be pared down or removed, the team instead opted to divide the game into multiple parts that could be "fully packed with content."

Furthermore, Square Enix made an official statement to Kotaku clarifying that "each entry will have its own unique story" and is intended to have a volume of content "equal to a full-sized game."

Earlier this month, Kitase did an interview with Game Informer comparing the "Final Fantasy VII" remake episodes to the three "Final Fantasy XIII" games, stating that "one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game."
