    I'm assuming by 'split' you mean 'available on both'?

    I wonder if there is a way to maintain your saves across games they'll implement in some way. If they do progress saves towards new episodes, then will they allow that cross-platform? It'd suck getting all the way through episode one to discover PS5 is releasing and cross-platform saves won't work so if you want to play the rest of it on PS5 you'll have to buy it and play it all the way through again.

    I suspect Part 2 will be available across gen, but maybe not beyond that, until they finish the Saga and release the 'Complete Edition' on PS5 with everything. I'd be very surprised if, multiple years into the PS5 lifecycle, they are still releasing new FFVII Remake games on PS4.

    I feel it will depend on how future installments are released. I always felt the first episode would get a physical release, but not so much the sequels outside of over-priced collector's editions. I still feel like most future installments would be purely digital and if that's the case, continuing on a new console will be pretty easy for them if PS5 just transfers a consumer's full PS4 account, games and all.

    SE has already said Episode 1 will be compatible with the PS5, but I don't feel Sony is going to drop the PS4 the second the PS5 comes out, so SE may also just simply double dip and release the later chapters on both platforms. Assuming the game doesn't take a decade to be finished, its more likely VIIR may be the last thing released for PS4 before Sony officially pulls the plug on it.

    Again speculation, and we won't know until we really see what Sony has planned for the PS5.

    I would argue the end of the crater (first time) is easily equivalent to leaving Midgar as an end to a significant stretch of plot. The only thing is it's a little close to Aeris death so both can't be used as episode endings unless there's more than 5 episodes or they stretch it out a lot. As it is, it's already a fairly lengthy section of sequential areas that's just battling punctuated by some story stuff. I don't know how they would expand it much without making it tiring.

    Depending on how much they expand it I would put the end point for part 2 at either Nibelheim or, as you say, the end of the crater. I don't think they'll leave it at Aerith. I don't think they'll end that part on such a depressing note; the crater is a much better cliffhanger. Then you can pick up part 3 starting with Tifa and Barret in Junon, which would be perfect.

    I honestly see the battles with Jenova being good endpoints,barring of course the two practically on top of each with Aerith and the Crater and the one before the battle with Sephiroth. If they really expand the first continent segment and Junon, the battle on the ship would actually be a fairly decent stopping point since its the first technical encounter with what the party believes is Sephiroth and it opens up the new continent as a good starting point for a new title. This can especially work if they bother with a world map filled with content.

    Nibelheim is also a pretty strong end point. Since the first disc had the most relevant story content, I can see it being split into three parts with expansions on the narrative. Crater would be a good stopping point, but I feel nostalgia may get the better of the dev and they'll end it with Aerith instead, which narratively works better due to the ending fatigue I feel waiting until the crater would do.

    I'm honestly more curious to see what gets cut or changed. The most disappointing thing about the E3 trailer is we never got a hint of the cross-dressing segment, though Kitase says its still in the game. I'm more curious to see if the actual questline is still intact or if SE may change a few things since several of the game's more questionable elements that would cause some controversy are in this sequence. The bike chase is too iconic to lost, but what about the snowboarding and submarine sections?

    Maybe just... don’t have it be the immediate next thing you do after Aerith dies?

    "Just act normal when this happens." - Aerith immediately after being told Barret's backstory about Corel, his wife dying, etc.
