It looks like we’ll be reunited with Cloud and friends a little later than expected this year. Early this morning, the official Final Fantasy VII Twitter account posted the news with a message from Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase, pushing the release date back to April 10, 2020.
The original release date for the game was set at March 3, 2020, meaning the delay is a little more than a month. Additionally, Marvel’s Avengers has also been delayed.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake is one of the most anticipated games of the year and the excitement around the release has been growing rapidly since it was first announced at the company’s E3 2019 press conference. “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,” Kitase said.
Several other highly-anticipated games are being released in March this year, so hopefully there’s plenty to keep us busy over the month of March in VII’s absence. In fact, this delay might mean you have more time to spend with games like Nioh 2 and Doom Eternal!
We’re glad when companies push games back — it’s so much better than releasing an incomplete game. Let us know what you think in the comments below, and be sure to follow us on Twitter and join our Community Discord!
