In a recent interview, Motomu Toriyama, Co-Director of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, shared some interesting details about the upcoming game, stating that the title's side content was inspired by CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The side quests in Final Fantasy 7 Remake were criticized by fans for feeling shallow and tacked on, but it seems that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth might not face the same criticism. 

"Regarding titles like The Witcher 3, which has that open-world role-playing type element, we did some extensive research into these types of titles and looked at it as a baseline in which Rebirth should be a type of title that can stand alongside it and have the type of content that would be satisfying to its players," said Toriyama.

During the same interview, Naoki Hamaguchi, another Co-Director of the Final Fantasy series, was asked about his favorite RPG (apart from the Final Fantasy franchise's games) and he also named The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Well, we can see that two of the three co-directors of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth are fans of CDPR's action role-playing game.

Hamaguchi also shared that the development team aimed to provide players with the freedom to choose if they wanted to focus solely on the main storyline or to explore the side content and delve deeper into character relationships and the story. In Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, players will have the freedom to experience the side content at their own pace.

Speaking of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, in September, the creators shared the regions of the world, you can check them in this article.
