Nobuo Uematsu, famed composer for the Final Fantasy franchise, has confirmed that he’s not working on the upcoming project at all. This news comes from a tweet by, which roughly translates to:

“Are you working on the remake of FFVII?”

“Not at all.”

Nobuo Uematsu composed the score for the original Final Fantasy VII, as well as many other games in the franchise.
