A job listing popped up indicating that Square Enix is hiring level planners for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake.
The ad was spotted by Siliconera, and it looks like Square Enix wants to increase the size of the core dev team to “meet fan expectations” and “increase quality.”
A translated version of the listing states:
“We’ve come to the conclusion that in order to meet fan expectations we must increase its quality another step higher. Therefore, in addition to the current members for the Final Fantasy VII Remake development, we must establish a core group that includes level planners, battle planners, designers, engineers, and various types of jobs to tackle on the production of the big title.”
It’s also worth noting that the game still seems a long way off. The listing specifies that the new hire will be expected to “brainstorm level designs for each location.” This suggests the game is still in early stages.
There is no fixed release date for the Final Fantasy VII remake, with Yosuke Matsuda indicating, in a recent financial results briefing, that Square Enix plans on releasing it “in the next three years or so.”

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
