The beginning of January turned out for a unexpected turn of events as the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake which was originally scheduled for March has been pushed back an addition month to properly cleanse the inhabiting issues still remaining. While we are still left with a certain release date for the game’s arrival, there was still one burning question that was left unanswered at the time.

Back even further in December, the cover art for the reworked title was updated by Square Enix which revealed that the game will actually be unique to the PlayStation 4 until a full year following the game’s release, March 3, 2021. However, it was not disclosed by Square Enix nor Sony Interactive Entertainment regarding if the date will be pushed or fans on other platforms will catch an early break.

Now this past week, Square Enix again has updated the game’s box art which reveals that the timed exclusive agreement between Square Enix and Sony has been extended to align with the game’s new April launch date.

As of now, determining the next destination for the Final Fantasy VII Remake has yet to properly be announced by the game’s developer. However, fans of the series have already seemed to unearth what might be the next platform to receive a port next year. While digging through the source code of the unreleased demo for the game, dataminers discovered traces for a PC version which raises the idea that the remake will migrate to mouse & keyboard later on.

Even more that surfaced from the demo, fans have also stumbled upon a VR mode to be in the game through the soundtrack. While it is uncertain if the game will support full on virtual reality, integration for the peripheral does show to potentially be present in parallel to the supposed PC iteration.
