Final Fantasy 7 Remake has been delayed and will now be released on April 10, 2020.
The official Twitter account for the remake published the news with a message from the producer of Final Fantasy 7, Yoshinori Kitase.
“We are making this difficult decision to give us a few more weeks to apply the final polishing to the game and give you the best possible experience,” said Kitase.

Originally scheduled for launch on March 3, 2020, the delay delays the launch date by one month. This announcement comes along with the news that the other great Square Enix game, Marvel’s Avengers has also been delayed. The new release date brings the remake to the release of Cyberpunk 2077, the highly anticipated RPG of CD Projekt Red. March and April are full of upcoming releases, with much to keep us busy during March in the absence of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
This news comes shortly after a series of leaks arose online showing parts of the game not yet seen, and potentially revealing a lot of new details. Filtration images also show the first revelation of the Red 13 character, as well as a famous Cloud scene from the original release. Shortly before the leaks appeared, Square revealed a series of screenshots that showed Sephiroth and Aerith shots in combat with some really cool moves.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is one of the most anticipated games of the year and the excitement around the launch has grown rapidly since it was first announced. “I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, since I know this means waiting a little longer for the game,” Kitase said.
Here are all next 2020 games (and beyond).
