It is now more than four years since the remake of Final Fantasy VII was announced during E3 2015. Since then, many fans of the series, and more particularly of the seventh installment, which is one of the most popular, have been waiting with impatience to be able to delve once more into the adventures of Cloud Strife.

Unfortunately, Square Enix has just revealed some bad news. Final Fantasy VII Remake, which was originally scheduled to be released on March 3, is now going to be released on April 10 instead. Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of the game, explained the reasons for this postponement in a press release published on the Square Enix website:

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.

This announcement has caused strong reactions from some fans of Final Fantasy VII, who will have to wait another month. Opinions are divided, but most players, although a little disappointed, prefer to put things in perspective. It’s better to wait a little longer, rather than getting your hands on a game that is not completely finished, and that has then to be fixed with a lot of updates.

Whether patience is your main quality or not, you will have to wait anyway. In contrast, Final Fantasy VII Remake has now an exit window that may be less favorable. The launch on April 10 will put the game in the middle of two other major releases on PS4, Resident Evil 3 Remake (April 3) and Cyberpunk 2077 (April 16). But given the expectations it has raised, this should not prevent the game from being a success.

See you on April 10 for the release of the first part of Final Fantasy VII Remake. As usual, you can visit our comparator to get it at the best price.
