Square Enix has delayed the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake from its previously planned March 3 worldwide release date to April 10, the company announced. It will be available for PlayStation 4.

Find a message from Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase below.

We know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on. In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date to April 10, 2020.

We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience. I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologize to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.

—Yoshinori Kitase, Producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake


God dammit Square! That's way to close to Cyberpunk plus I'll be serving in the army, I was hoping I would get to play FF VII Remake before that.

Bummer. But I have been waiting nearly two decades for them to announce a remake. And now that they are making it, an extra month of wait isn’t going to be that unbearable.

I want the game to be as good and as polished as possible.

Now as long as we don’t have to wait for too long for the other parts once this one has come out...

The announced release date of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon must have scared them. Good on them for avoiding the fierce competition.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

At least SE is consistent with their traditions.

Exactly, what scared them though was the DX on the title!

It upsets me that in the back of my mind I was betting on this happening. One month isn't much, though, so hopefully that means no more surprises. How is S/E so bad at being on time with their major releases.

So FF7, RE3 and Cyberpunk all in the same month...wonder if RE3 or Cyberpunk will also be delayed.

Good Friday seems like an odd day to release.

One month delay isn't huge. They probably just need the extra time to fix bugs and balance the gameplay a bit.

Can't say this is a surprise but it also makes sense to want a polished game day one instead of a broken mess.
