Final Fantasy 7 Remake Xbox One Listing Was A Mistake

Sorry, but it's still PS4-only.


Final Fantasy VII Remake is confirmed to launch on March 3, 2020 for PlayStation 4, but is an Xbox One version also coming? Despite what you may have seen, it seems that it's not. Following an erroneous posting, Square Enix has reiterated it's only planned for launch on PS4.

The Xbox Germany Facebook page recently posted a video that stated that the Final Fantasy VII Remake would release on Xbox One on March 3 alongside the PS4 edition. However, Xbox Germany's marketing communications and social lead Maxi Graff confirmed that it was only a mistake. [Update: The PS4 release has now been delayed.]

Now Playing: Final Fantasy 7 Remake Xbox One Release Date Was A Mistake - GS News Update

The related materials with the March 3 date were removed right away, and Graff apologized for the mistake. Graff went on to say that the team will work to make sure this kind of slip-up doesn't happen again.

Following this mistake, Square Enix issued a statement saying, "As previously announced, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 3 2020. We have no plans for other platforms."

The Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming in March, which is a little while before the next-generation of consoles are believed to release in Holiday 2020. According to Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda, the Final Fantasy VII Remake is being designed to play on current- and next-generation hardware.

"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."

Square Enix's E3 2019 press conference brought a fresh look at the Final Fantasy VII Remake, with an extended trailer as well as an extended gameplay and combat demonstration. Square Enix also revealed the game will span two Blu-ray discs when it launches on PS4, and the publisher will offer an extravagant $330 collector's edition through its online store. The highly anticipated game will finally launch worldwide on March 3, 2020.
