Square Enix officially confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will only release on Sony's PlayStation 4 and that there are no plans to launch the game on PC and Xbox One. The confirmation comes after a recent video revealed the Xbox version.
Earlier this week, Xbox Germany Facebook page shared a video of Final Fantasy 7 Remake along with an Xbox One logo, claiming that the highly-anticipated RPG will also release on Microsoft's console, not only PlayStation 4 as earlier believed.
As expected, many Xbox One players were surprised and excited by the news and even PC players joined the party, hoping that Square Enix's remake of the iconic title could come to the Master Race platform.
However, it's time for a reality check as Square Enix officially responded to claim, saying that there are no plans to release the game on Xbox One and PC, only PlayStation 4. "As previously announced, Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 3rd 2020. We have no plans for other platforms," Square Enix told IGN.
The video which caused all the fuss was quickly taken down and Xbox Germany's Marketing Communications & Social Lead Maxi Graff explained that it was simply an internal mistake, not an announcement of any sort. "Hey. We did an internal mistake in the social team. We took the video off immediately. Sorry, no announcement on our side. Big apologies for this," Graff replied to Twitter users who asked if the announcement was legit.
While Square Enix officially confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will appear only PlayStation 4, there is still a possibility that someday, we get to see it on other platforms. The original got an Xbox One and PC release after all, so there's still hope that the Remake will follow the same path.
Also, Square Enix are using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4 to build the Remake, so hopefully, Tim Sweeney convinces the Japanse publisher to port the title to Epic Games Store.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is hitting the shelves on 03 March 2020.
