What was originally to be released this March 3rd, the remake for Final Fantasy 7 will be delayed to April 10 instead. The developers cited that they are within making the final polish for the game. The developers at Square Enix have apologized for the delay and asked fans to be patient.
We know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on. In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date to April 10, 2020.
The date at which Final Fantasy 7 will be released puts it roughly in competition with Cyberpunk 2077. The latter of which is to be released on the 16th of April. As for whether or not that will significantly affect sales is yet to be seen.
We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience. I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer.
Here’s to hoping for a nostalgic return to the world of Final Fantasy. The remake is a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 4 and will be available for Xbox the following year in March.
