Seeing that news already broke ahead of this year’s E3, Square Enix revealed that the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake will officially launch on March 3, 2020. The developer also clarified that this will only be the first part of three that will be available for the game as the remaining segments are still in development.
This leaving to speculation that the coming title could potentially release on both the current and upcoming generation of platforms. With this question hanging over everyone’s head, outlet Game Informer at E3 asked Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda the longed question. Matsuda anticipating the question responded with “It’s the hottest topic at the moment and we thought you might ask us that.”
The CEO continued on by sharing:
I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles. I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I’m not really concerned about that and I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles.
Exciting to see where Square Enix looks for where exactly the forthcoming title will land for now and coming hardware, Matsuda’s word still doesn’t hold as true verification for the announcement, but does leave reassurance for those who have been wondering. Time will tell as we lead to the coming generation: possibly more will be revealed as the inevitable PlayStation 5 is officially announced.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently listed for PlayStation 4.
