Final Fantasy Tactics remaster rumours squashed by director

Sorry folks, it looks like a Final Fantasy Tactics remaster isn’t in the works.

A remaster of the PlayStation 1 (and later PSP) game is heavily sought after by fans of the series.

However, the game’s director Yasumi Matsuno has seemingly squashed any rumours of a revival.

Responding to a fan on X, formerly Twitter, he posted: “Currently, there are no plans for remastering. Also, you have to convey your request to SQEX, not me. Thank you for your understanding.”


In a further reply, he then said: “That’s all I can say as my position right now. I’ll leave it to you whether you believe it or not.”

Rumours of a remaster have been rife ever since the infamous Nvidia leak in 2021, which correctly predicted the release of multiple PC games including Final Fantasy 7 Remake, God of War, Resident Evil 4 Remake, GTA remasters, and more.

A remaster of Final Fantasy Tactics was included in the leak, but is yet to be announced in any official capacity. It looks like it may remain a rumour, according to Matsuno.

Also included in that leak was a remake of Final Fantasy 9, another highly desired game by fans that’s yet to be officially announced.

Final Fantasy Tactics was a spin-off of the main series set in Ivalice, the same world as the later Final Fantasy 12. It’s a turn-based strategy title with a more political story that’s become a cult favourite among fans.

In the meantime, Square Enix’s Triangle Strategy, Tactics Ogre: Reborn, and The DioField Chronicle should fill the void nicely.
