Final Fantasy VII Remake Pushed to April
Square Enix announced that the release date of the first part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake has been pushed back. Originally set for March 3, 2020, the game will now launch for PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020. Producer Yoshinori Kitase provided the following statement:
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 fans who have been waiting for it 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.
