Final Fantasy VII Remake Delayed To April

January 15, 2020

Were you eagerly awaiting the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake in March? So were we, and now the wait will be a little bit longer after Square-Enix announces overnight that the game would be delayed to April 10 to allow the development team some more time to polish the game and make it the best it can be. The full statement can be read below:

‘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.

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.

Thank you for your patience and continued support’

After the false start of the Final Fantasy VII PlayStation 3 tech demo and the change of developers that seemed to cause a multi-year delay, an extra month really isn’t too big a deal, although releasing the week before Cyberpunk 2077 means that some may have to make a tough decision on what to pick up.

Final Fantasy VII Remake releases exclusively on PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.
