That long-awaited vacation to Midgar you’ve been planning will have to wait until April 10, 2020.

Final Fantasy VII Remake



If you’re one of the millions of gamers who’ve been anxiously awaiting the chance to return to the gritty streets of Midgar in Final Fantasy VII Remake in just a few short months, we’ve got some mildly disappointing news for you. The game, which was initially slated to be launch on March 3, 2020, has been delayed until April 10 to apply some final polish to the title, according to a statement issued by the game’s producer Yoshinori Kitase.

You can find the full statement from Kitase below:

As someone who’s been waiting with bated breath to dive into Square-Enix’s PlayStation 4-exclusive reimagined take on Final Fantasy VII, this news does come as a bit of a punch in the gut. Still, it’s good to see the developer taking the extra time to ensure that Final Fantasy Remake is the best it can be when it releases a few weeks later than originally anticipated. Here’s hoping that extra push to polish the title ensures players will be treated an adventure to remember when the game – the first chapter in an episodic series – finally hits retail.
