Final Fantasy VII Remake Not Planned For Other Platforms, Says Dev
There has been a significant amount of back and forth lately on whether or not the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Despite both Sony and Square Enix initially announcing that it would be an exclusive, there have been multiple instances where news tidbits have gotten out suggesting that a release for the Xbox One will also happen in the future. Now, Square Enix has once again gone on record to confirm that the game is, in fact, a PS4 exclusive.
Just yesterday, the Final Fantasy VII Remake was mentioned on the official Xbox Germany Facebook page, suggesting that the title would be releasing for the Xbox One at the same time as the release date for the PS4. This has since been proven to have been a simple mistake, though it has prompted Square Enix to release a statement to VGC regarding the title’s exclusivity. “As previously announced, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 3rd 2020,” Square Enix said. “We have no plans for other platforms.”
Sorry folks, but that seems fairly definitive. The only other thing to keep in mind is that the remake is episodic, so it may be that the PS4 exclusivity is only linked to the individual games/episodes. If that’s the case, then Xbox One players may be able to pick up the full collection at a later date. When that will be is unknown, though, with not even Square Enix knowing just how many episodes it’ll take to complete the game.
Final Fantasy VII Remake launches exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.
