Square Enix has announced that their upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake won’t be coming out in 3rd March as previously scheduled. Unfortunately, it seems that they will have to delay it further, and announced a new release date, which is 10th April 2020.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase released a statement in the game’s English website, and it reads:

“We know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on. In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date to April 10, 2020.

We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience. I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer.

Thank you for your patience and continued support”

Yoshinori Kitase, Producer of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be available for the PS4 on April 10, 2020.

As previously revealed, players can switch from the game’s default battle mode and into the “Classic Mode”, which allows players to fight battles in the original’s turn-based style. However, players can still fill their ATB (active-time battle) gauge, much like the default battle mode.

The game itself will be released in several parts, with the first one only covering the Midgar storyline. The one getting its release in April will only be the first part.
