Final Fantasy Tactics remake "ready to go" claims leak characters from Tactics

Does Square ever sleep? Well, apparently not, ‘cause along with the deluge of titles they have been announcing lately, another game in Final Fantasy universe is reportedly on the way: Final Fantasy Tactics Remake.

Indeed, it is time to go back to the universe of Tactics, with a full-on remake of the original title. According to a new leak, Square Enix is planning on bringing the strategic classic to modern fans with a new coat of paint.

This information comes from a thread on Resetera, which claims that a Final Fantasy Tactics remake is "ready to go". But when exactly? The same thread claims that we should see this dropping sometime between now and 2025, but apparently closer to a 2024 release.

This is not the first we've heard a Final Fantasy Tactics Remake, as journalist Jason Schreier confirmed the title in a tweet back in February. Furthermore, numerous Square employees have teased the existence of the upcoming game.

The Final Fantasy Tactics spin-off series began all the way in 1997 on the original PlayStation with the aptly-titled Final Fantasy Tactics. This was the first time Square set a title in the world of Ivalice (where Final Fantasy XII also took place) and it came from an important pedigree: Yasumi Matsuno, the mind behind the Ogre Battle series at Quest Corporation.

Tactics came out to great critical acclaim and was quite the success with the public as well. After its first title, the series branched off into several different directions, with Final Fantasy Tactics Advance being very similar to the original but still not a sequel. Afterwards, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift was a sort of sequel to Advance, but not directly to the first game.

While we have no more information at the moment on the Tactics remake, it will be interesting to see the direction that Square will take this one. Will it be a full-blown 3D AAA remake or a smaller game which keeps the same 2D isometric graphics as the original? We will keep you updated as soon as we have more information.
