Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 is one of the most highly anticipated JRPGs on the horizon. After the brilliant first instalment in the FF7 Remake project – which Express.co.uk gave five stars to – excitement for Part 2 is at fever pitch, before a single screenshot or trailer has been revealed. Square Enix are holding an E3 press conference this weekend, which would be the ideal place to deliver an update on the highly anticipated game.

However, anyone hoping for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 news at E3 2021 shouldn’t hold their breath.
As reported by Comicbook.com, notable insider Navtra has discussed whether FF7R Part 2 will appear at E3 2021.
And the ResetEra user said it was likely.
In a forum post Navtra wrote: “Nope, I don’t think it will be there”.
But while Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 may not appear at E3 2021, other games in the iconic series could get showcased.

One hotly tipped unannounced game from Square Enix that could get revealed at E3 2021 is Final Fantasy Origin.
This is reportedly an action-focused spin-off developed in collaboration with Team Ninja.
Final Fantasy Origin is believed to be a Souls-like game with a setting that ties into the original Final Fantasy game that kickstarted it all.
Final Fantasy Origin is reportedly a PS5 exclusive as well.
News on another PS5 exclusive, Final Fantasy 16, is also due to drop in 2021.
Towards the end of last year Yoshi-P said fans could look forward to news on FF16 dropping in 2021.
However, it’s unclear if an update will come during Square Enix’s event at E3, or if news could be saved up for a future PlayStation stream.

Final Fantasy 16 was revealed during Sony’s September PS5 event last year, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if more news on the PS5 exclusive comes in an upcoming PlayStation event.
In terms of what else could get announced during E3 2021, Navtra previously teased a cross-gen title from Eidos.
Speaking a few weeks ago Navtra said: “I believe you can expect at least one more major FF announcement in addition to updates on the currently announced stuff (XVI/Endwalker/VIIR). It should be a good E3 season for Square overall.
”I don’t know their exact E3 schedule, but I’m guessing based on knowledge of what games they have in development, how far in they are, and their target release dates. So take it with a grain of salt. I believe we’re getting two major SE reveals this June: A PS5 exclusive FF title, and a cross-gen Eidos title.”
