Final Fantasy 7 Remake timed exclusivity ends in 2021

Final Fantasy 7 Remake timed exclusivity ends in 2021

The PlayStation 4 is the only platform that has been announced for Final Fantasy VII Remake thus far.

In the packaging shot released by Square Enix, we can clearly see the "PlayStation Exclusive" sticker, with a note saying that it's a timed exclusive until March 3, 2021. "We have no plans for other platforms", a spokesperson said at the time. New box art for the game, uploaded on developer Square Enix's site, shows that the game isn't actually a true PS4 exclusive - or at least, it won't be forever. The long-awaited JRPG will appear on the console on March 3, 2020, and exactly a year later the exclusivity will end.

Final Fantasy fans have been clamouring for a remake of FFVII for years.

It turns out that it was a cut-out shirt showing off her entire backside featuring a pair of fishnet tights and a black thong. When the camera focused on her, the 31-year-old grooved to the music, turned around and twerked for the jumbotron.

My guess is that Square Enix will reveal more details about the game's PS4 exclusivity in the next few weeks. The Remake won't be sold all at once-instead it's split into three episodes that'll release separately.

And with PS5 and Project Scarlett on the way, Square Enix can sell multiple SKUs (a separate PS4 and PS5 version, for instance) as long as both systems are supported.
