Tetsuya Nomura, the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake has revealed in an interview with multiple French websites including Finaland that the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII is not canon to Final Fantasy VII Remake.

This was revealed when asked about the possibility of a HD collection of the titles from the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis, Crisis Core and Dirge of Cerberus similar to what Nomura did with the Kingdom Hearts series. Here's what Nomura said.

Concerning Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is a title loaded with a lot of mystery for now, it will be different from the original Final Fantasy VII. If we make a compilation, these games will hardly have an overall coherence. It will be difficult because there is no more continuity between the Compilation and the Remake for the moment

This is after Hajime Tabata, the director of Before Crisis said in 2010 he'd like to remake Before Crisis for the Nintendo 3DS. Tabata, also the director of Crisis Core would also years later say in 2015 he had no interest in remastering Crisis Core due to how difficult Type-0 HD was to make and due to the fact it was available worldwide unlike Type-0 before its HD remaster.

Maybe we'll get a PlayStation 2 Classic for PlayStation 4 of Dirge of Cerberus? Let's hope so.
