Final Fantasy VII Remake Leak Suggests A Possible Release For Xbox One
I’m going to preface this by saying we’ve already been down this road before. That said, the show must go on (and the news needs to be reported) so here we are. Throughout the development of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix has made it very plain that the title would be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, though it will also be playable on the PS5 once it launches at some point in the future. However, yet another leak is suggesting that the remake will also be getting released on the Xbox One.
The latest leak comes to us by way of the official Germany Xbox Facebook page, which recently put up a post mentioning that the Final Fantasy VII Remake would be headed to the Xbox One next year, specifically listing the same release date as the one for the PS4 version. This is, of course, more than likely a mistake, though it makes you really wonder how a division of a company can mess up so much that they throw up a post that isn’t (allegedly) being released on their platform. It really makes you think. The post was deleted, though the folks over at Resetera grabbed a screenshot:
The important other thing to note is that a title as highly anticipated as the Final Fantasy VII Remake likely won’t remain a PlayStation 4 exclusive. It makes all the sense in the world for Square Enix to have it release on multiple platforms. The big question at this point is, did a timed exclusive deal fall through with Sony? Or was this a mistake, and an Xbox One version may simply arrive at a later date? Here’s hoping we find out sooner rather than later.
Final Fantasy VII Remake releases for the PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
