Final Fantasy VII Remake Delayed Until April

Posted January 14, 2020 by Richard Lee Breslin in Gaming News, PS4, Release Date

Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy VIII Remake has suffered yet another delay.  Thankfully however, it’s only been delayed for a mere month.  The previous release was set for March 3rd, but now it will release on April 10th.

As with these kinds of delays, the reasons are that they want the game to be “in-line with our visions, and the quality that our fans that have been waiting for deserve.”  So in my opinion, yes it sucks that it’s been delayed again, but it is for the benefit of the game and it’s not like we’ve been waiting years as it is.  You can read the full statement from Square Enix in full below.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will release for PlayStation 4 on April 10th.

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” – Yoshinori Kitase, Producer of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.
