Square Enix Issues Statement Regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake Release Date

SOLDIER-ing on with release

With a duo of high-profile releases kicking things off this week, we’re beginning to head into 2020 proper as far as video game releases goes. Exciting stuff, but it’s overshadowed by the worrying state of the world as it is right now with a growing virus pandemic.

No doubt responding to escalating concern from fans about how preventative social measures could affect the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix have issues a statement on Twitter today clarifying their current position.

I’ll leave the talking to the official statement, but the short of it is that the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake will go ahead on April 10, but the publisher admits that some fans may not be able to get their hands on the game at release:

Not an ideal situation for Square Enix – having to decide between delaying the game yet again or disappointing some fans – but as always the health and safety of everyone involved should take precedence over the release of a video game.

Were you planning on picking up this one physically or digitally? Has that changed with current situation? Let us know below or over on social media.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
