Bad news for FF fans, originally slated for release on March 3, 2020, the highly-anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake has now been officially delayed by a month to April 10, 2020.
Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase shared in a note posted on Facebook that the team needed “a few extra weeks to apply final polish”.
That’s not all, Crystal Dynamics also shared something similar about the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game, which was originally slated for May 15, 2020 release: “To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.”
Here is the message in full:
“To our fans,
At Crystal Dynamics our ambition has always been to deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience. In order to achieve that goal, we have made the difficult decision to move the release date of Marvel’s Avengers to September 4, 2020.
As fans ourselves, it’s an honor and a privilege to work with these legendary characters and we know what these Super Heroes mean to us and True Believers around the world. When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come. To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.
The worldwide teams working on Marvel’s Avengers sincerely appreciate the support you’ve shown us. We thrive on your enthusiasm and feedback and we can’t wait to show you more. We apologize for the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait.”
Looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer to get our hands on the games. This means Final Fantasy VII Remake is going head-to-head with Cyberpunk 2077 in April. Where can we find more time?
