It will have been close to 5 years when the Final Fantasy VII Remake releases on March 3, 2020 since it was first revealed at PlayStation’s memorable E3 2015 press conference.

Announced as “First on PlayStation 4” the game has had quite the development journey, as Cyberconnect 2 was relieved of their development duties after Square Enix found their content to be unworthy of their standards. It was then announced that Square Enix would be assuming full development of the game, just as it should been originally.

Another small twist hit yesterday when Xbox Germanytweeted (and deleted) that the game would also hit the Xbox One day and date alongside the PS4 version. They quickly issued a statement regarding the “interal mistake”.

Square Enix issued a statement to Videogamechronicles that they currently have “no plans” to release the Final Fantasy VII Remake on any other platforms.

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.

This whole situation seems bizarre. Square Enix released a majority of the Final Fantasy library on the XB1 recently, so what would keep them from bringing the FFVIIR to Microsoft’s current-gen console?

These timed-exclusive deals sure do make for some interesting news articles, Brah.
