The statement that Final Fantasy VII Remake fans have been dreading to hear has happened, as the game been delayed from March to April.
Final Fantasy VII Remake was first announced during Sony’s E3 2015 conference, but almost no new footage was shown of the game for several years. This all changed in 2019 when Square Enix finally started showing trailers, letting journalists play hands-on demos of the game, and revealing that it was planned to be released on March 3, 2020. The footage of Final Fantasy VII Remake that has been released so far has been highly-polished, so it seemed as if the game was set to meet its release date.

It seems that Final Fantasy VII Remake was not as complete as we thought. Producer Yoshinori Kitase has released a statement on several official Final Fantasy social media channels confirming that Final Fantasy VII Remake has been delayed from March 3 to April 10.

Kitase explains that the reason for the delay is to give the game a little more polish before it’s released. A similar delay happened to Final Fantasy XV before it was released for the same reasons, though there was still a lot of negativity from the fanbase in response to the news.
There are sure to be a lot of fans who are disappointed by the news of the delay, but it’s only a few extra weeks of waiting. There are some Final Fantasy VII fans who have waited decades to see the game remade, so we can all stand to wait a little longer if it’s in service of the game being a better product at launch. March 2020 is shaping up to be the busiest month in the gaming calendar, so it’s not as if people will be lacking for new games to play. Instead, fans will be given a sliver of breathing room between Resident Evil 3, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Cyberpunk 2077, all of which release within a week of each other, which is a pretty awesome time to live in.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will now be released for PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.
