Final Fantasy VII’s Remake has been revealed as a PlayStation 4 “Timed Exclusive” 

The latest boxart for Final Fantasy VII’s long-awaited remake has shown that the game is now a “timed exclusive” for Sony’s PlayStation consoles, revealing that the game will release on other platforms on March 3rd, 2021. 

Before now, Final Fantasy VII had only been revealed for PlayStation 4, but now, Xbox One and PC versions of the game seem likely, after the game’s period of Sony exclusivity. It is also likely that Final Fantasy VII’s remake will also be released on next-generation console platforms on this date. 

This makes Final Fantasy VII’s Remake one of many new PlayStation Timed Exclusives, with Death Stranding, Detroit: Become Human and the Yakuza series being other recent examples. Sony can no longer keep 3rd party developers tied to its PlayStation hardware, which is great news for users of other console platforms. 

At this time, it is unknown which platforms will see a release of Final Fantasy VII after PlayStation 4, though Xbox One and PC released seem likely. Final Fantasy VII is likely too demanding for Nintendo’s Switch console, at least without significant graphical downgrades.
