Just as fans were within reach of the Final Fantasy VII Remake releasing this March it seems that something has caused the game to be delayed a month further. This change was announced this morning via a tweet from the official Final Fantasy VII twitter account.

The message from the producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Yoshinori Kitase, is as follows

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

What is the new Final Fantasy VII Remake release date?

Final Fantasy VII Remake will now release on April 10th. While the 38-delay from the original release date of March 3rd might be frustrating, it isn't too bad when you think that the game was first revealed during E3 2015. It's likely with such a short delay that it's just a final bit of polish to put on the Buster Sword before it gets shipped out the door. In the twitter responses, you can already see a mix of encouragement to continue progress on the game, while others are bemoaning any extended amount of time between them and the game.

Final Fantasy VII Remake has been making a lot of news recently between the concept art that was revealed as well as all of the information that leaked from the still unreleased demo, including clues about an eventual PC release

What do you think of this short delay? Do you think they'll be able to do much in a month? Are you getting excited to finally be returning to Midgar?
