Final Fantasy VII Remake Officially Delayed
With the Final Fantasy VII Remake originally slated to release in less than two months, both fans of the original game and relative newcomers to the series have been looking forward to spending some quality time with Cloud and friends as they fight their way through Midgar. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a bit longer for the title to release, as Square Enix has just announced that the Final Fantasy VII Remake has officially been delayed.
The folks over at Square Enix recently took to the official Final Fantasy VII Remake Twitter to announce that the game is being delayed. While any delay can be disheartening to fans, the good news is that the game is only being delayed back into this April, which will give the developers a little over five more weeks to apply some final polish to the first entry in what will end up being a series of Remake games. Here’s the tweet below:

Those of us that have been Square Enix fans for a long time will have likely seen this coming. The Japanese Publisher has an unfortunate track record of pushing their release dates out, as was the case for its latest numbered FF game, Final Fantasy XV, along with its spin-off title Comrades. Back then, the publisher made the announcement about the delay of Final Fantasy XV in a heartfelt video explaining the reasoning behind the delay. Today’s statement was a bit more hurried in its delivery, though that’s because in comparison, this delay is small potatoes.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is now slated to release on PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.
