Xbox Germany made a pretty big whoopsie yesterday when their Facebook page accidentally published an ad stating that the Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming to the Xbox One the same day that it would be arriving on PlayStation 4. Though never explicitly said by the studio, many assumed that it would be a timed-exclusive that would eventually make its way to Xbox One and PC. According to Square Enix, however, that’s just simply not true.
Square Enix did not mince words when they issued their statement directly to VGC saying, “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.”
Plans can change and it’s possible they simply have launch day brain front and center. Still, when we posted the story of the Xbox One same-day launch, we were surprisingly hit with even death threats alongside ‘news’ that it was already confirmed to be multi-platform, which has never been confirmed by the studio itself. With talks of the next Final Fantasy being cross-generational, however, it’s possible they will make the jump then as they have with previous entries, most recently being Final Fantasy 15.
For now, however, it’s a solid “no” with the Final Fantasy VII Remake coming exclusively to PlayStation 4, at least for now, on March 3, 2020.
Are you disappointed in this news? Do you think that the Final Fantasy VII Remake should be on all platforms on launch day? Sound off with your thoughts over on Twitter @PrimaGames!
