Final Fantasy VII Remake for Xbox One Leaked with Release Date

Xbox Germany accidentally posted a trailer of the Final Fantasy Remake with a release date stating that it was coming out on 3rd March 2020.

The Xbox Germany Facebook account has since taken it down but Twitter User Nibellion was quick to take screenshots of the post. The original Facebook post contained the trailer for the game with Xbox brandings.

The marketing head for Xbox Germany was quick to tweet out a response but nothing can be done now since they probably released the info too early.

From the PSX 2015 Reveal

The release date for the PlayStation 4 version of the game is also 3rd March 2020 so this is odd because the earlier trailers stated that the game would debut first on the PS4.

Now, it just says that the game will be available worldwide on 3rd March. Curiously, the E3 2019 Press Release from Square Enix stated that the game will first debut on the PlayStation 4 so maybe things have changed since then or maybe it’s a very short exclusivity period.

This also begs the question that since it is coming to PlayStation and now Xbox, will it also make its way to PC like Final Fantasy XV did? It would be really good to see it on PC but right now that’s just speculation.

However, it does seem like the Xbox port is happening and that it will launch very close to the PlayStation 4’s release date. I’m guessing we’ll see the official announcement for the Xbox One version for the game very soon.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Launches March 3, 2020

Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch worldwide for PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020, Square Enix announced at the “Final Fantasy VII: A Symphonic Reunion” concert in Los Angeles.

Here is an overview of the game, via Square Enix:

Rebuilding and expanding upon the legendary RPG for today, Final Fantasy VII Remake tells the story of a world fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic adventures that await him.

Square Enix also unveiled a new key art featuring the game’s main villain Sephiroth set against a burning Midgar skyline.
