There has been doubt whether ”Final Fantasy 7 Remake” would be a premier title on PlayStation or not, but now the doubt has been clear, next is how long do we have to wait before playing it. Deal-finder Wario64 has just discovered box art proving that the reborn RPG will be a PlayStation exclusive until March 3rd, 2021, that’s exactly a year after its planned release.
Xbox and PC players will only have to go for older (or really, newer) Final Fantasy titles until that point, although the timing suggests 7 Remake for other platforms is more a matter of “when” rather than “if” because it’s certain.
We aren’t shocked at all that Square Enix would oblige to an exclusive. Sony is determined to snap up exclusives as a general rule, although Final Fantasy VII is practically synonymous with the original PlayStation.
You may see this as an opportunity to recreate those glory days, even if it’s very late in the PS4’s lifecycle. Still, for everyone who hoped that the role-playing series would stay platform-independent are most likely going to be disappointed. Be-that-as-it-may, the decision is made.
