Square Enix has No Plans to Bring Final Fantasy VII Remake to Other Platforms

Square Enix today reaffirmed that Final Fantasy VII Remake is a PlayStation 4 exclusive for the time being.

Final Fantasy VII Remake, first announced at E3 2015, was always a timed-exclusive for PS4. Even at E3 2019, the announcement confirming the release date said the game would ‘debut first.’ However, yesterday, Xbox Germany released a Facebook video suggesting the game would launch day-and-date on Xbox One alongside the PS4 version. It turns out that this isn’t happening.

Speaking with VGC, Square Enix reaffirmed that Final Fantasy VII Remake is only launching on PS4 when March 3, 2020 rolls around. At this time, they don’t have plans for any other platform. Xbox Germany has since deleted the video and apologized for the confusion.

“As previously announced, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 3rd 2020. We have no plans for other platforms.”

Final Fantasy VII Remake launching on other platforms isn’t a question of ‘if,’ but rather ‘when.’ Since Final Fantasy XIII, Square Enix has taken great strides to release all Final Fantasy games on as many platforms as possible. Last year, a slew of previously PS4 console exclusive remasters were announced for Xbox One and Switch. Meanwhile, the upcoming Final Fantasy VIII Remaster launches day-and-date on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on other platforms, we just don’t know when.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is out March 3, 2020 on PS4.
