Well, it’s happening… again. Final Fantasy VII Remake is one of the most anticipated games this year, and Square Enix has announced that they are delaying its release, again. They previously announced the game for March 3, 2020, and now, they’re delaying it to April 10, 2020.
Square Enix’s development team for Final Fantasy VII Remake also released a statement regarding the delay:
“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.
FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be available for the PS4 on April 10, 2020.
Well, delays are to be expected with a game as grand as this one. The reason being Square Enix simply does not want a mediocre final product when they release. The expectations are high for the game, so rushing development just to meet the release date would end up badly.
Tetsuya Nomura previously mentioned a lot of things are coming back from the original game as well, including the Honeybee Inn. This means we might get to see “Trap Cloud” or “Crossdressing Cloud” in the remake after all! We just have to be patient and wait until the devs finish the game and release it in April.
