The highly-anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Remake has been delayed until Friday 10th April 2020, Square Enix has announced.
The delay, which pushes the game’s release back by just over a month, was announced in a post on the Square Enix website earlier today. Speaking on the delay, Square Enix said:
“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”
As we always say here at BuffNerfRepeat, we would much rather see a game delayed so that it can be released up to scratch rather than get our hands on it earlier and it be a disappointment, so hopefully this delay will allow Square Enix to get the game up to the standard that we’re all expecting. It will be interesting to see how this delay affects the games release on other platforms – Final Fantasy 7 Remake is set to be a PS4 exclusive for a year, which likely means that its release on other platforms will now be pushed back into April of next year. As always, we’ll keep you updated as and when that’s confirmed.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake will launch for PS4 on Friday 10th April 2020.
