Square Enix have announced Final Fantasy VII Remake has been delayed.
While originally slated for a release of March 3rd, 2020, Square Enix’ English and Japanese Twitter accounts for the game (along with their official website) have confirmed there will now be a delay.
The following message from Producer Yoshinori Kitase was shared.
“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.”
In other recent news, a listing for a demo of Final Fantasy VII Remake leaked in late December 2019. While some of the footage has been purged from platforms such as YouTube, those who dug into the demo’s code allege the game will have a Windows PC port.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is launching April 10th for PlayStation 4.
