Zack.....IS ALIVE!?!? And there are two buster swords!??

WHAT!?

edit: okay posted just a few seconds early before I saw them “walk by each other” which I still don’t understand? Cause if I remember correctly! Zack dies in that final battle!

Alternate timeline.
I have somewhere to be but I don't want to go there.

That’s an alternate timeline. At least that’s what we assume. The only evidence for that is that a flyer with Stamp flies by but it isn’t the same breed as our timeline’s Stamp. What they’ll do with that? Idk. It’ll probably be a side-scenario at some point.

Kind of. Did you notice how Cloud has flashes of Aerith's death, and at the end the whole party sees Meteor and Red XIII and his cubs 500 years later? The events of FFVII have sort of already happened at this point. Sephiroth has travelled back from Advent Children via the Lifestream to try and get his own way and it's like he's reset the timeline or something. The ghost dudes that mess around with everyone are the Planet trying to keep things the same as before.

Also there's more than one Sephiroth now.

not saying you’re wrong.....but how the heck did you come up with that!? I don’t remember that being mentioned at all in the game!? Like even the slightest hint?!

We don't know if ther's time-travel involved but the fact that FF7R is both a remake and a sequel is heavily hinted throughout the game. Time for you hard mode run ;)

We've been discussing this and translating developers interviews for months now.

Stamp is also a representation of Zack as his nickname was the Shinra Puppy and it's a soldier puppy that is shown doing thing's Zack did, being called Stamp also triggers Clouds like Zack's name does.

So the assumed reason the Stamp in Zack's timeline is different is because he lived, the developers even commented this will be a big deal going forward, and you see the party walk right through Zack and other Cloud like they were ghosts.

We'll likely find out for sure in the next parts, but I think it may be a setup for getting to play around as Zack a little, or tie up some loose ends with his story arc, might even have to sacrifice himself to set the timeline straight.
