Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo Hints At An Upcoming PC Port
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is officially less than three months away, and fans of the longtime RPG series are chomping at the bit to jump into the shoes of Cloud Strife and explore Midgar for themselves. Thankfully we needn’t necessarily have to wait the full three months to play the game, as a video clip showing off a demo for the remake recently leaked. The demo seemingly has a few secrets of its own, as it is now suggesting that a PC version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development.
The interesting – though not exactly surprising – revelation comes by way of dataminer @roXyPS3, who seemingly discovered some leftover PC code inside the demo for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Said coding also includes references to resolution options that surpass the extent of the PS4’s capabilities, which makes it seem pretty indicative that a PC version of the game is in the works.
Yeah already discussed this yesterday in Discord with others that there are many “many” signs inside the Demo that we will see a future PC Port sooner or later. There is PC Code still left inside, and it mentions various higher Resolutions together with some NVIDIA and AMD stuff.

It should be noted that last month, an update to the game’s official box art revealed that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a timed exclusive for the PS4 and not just a straight exclusive, something many folks understandably expected, though something that had yet to be confirmed by Square Enix. It is very likely that the PS4 will have the remake to itself for around a year before coming to PC, Xbox One, and likely the next generation of consoles.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is slated to release on March 3, 2020 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
