It is more likely that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released for PC after Epic Game Store’s alleged list of upcoming games has been partially confirmed.
Earlier this summer the site tracker EpicData tracker found links in the Epic Games Store database for two titles; Alan Wake Remastered and Final Fantasy 7 Remake. This weekend, a retail leak appeared to confirm the first, which seemed to add credibility to the database leak and Final Fantasy PC’s listing.
Alan Wake Remastered Listed in Rakuten Taiwan retail chain for release on PS4, PS5, and Xbox on October 5.
Potentially adding weight is Square Enix’s previous deal with Epic that the Kingdom Hearts series will be available for the first time on PC as an Epic Games Store exclusive earlier this year.
The 12-month exclusive period for the PlayStation Final Fantasy 7 Remake was slated to end in April 2021. However, it appears to have been extended by six months with the PS5 Intergrade release in June. No plans to port the game to other platforms were announced.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is an update from last year’s PS5 RPG with improved visuals, faster loading times, photo mode and tactile feedback, and a new Yuffie DLC story.
Sony has been actively caring for the Square Enix RPG series in recent years. PlayStation also holds exclusive rights to the next original Final Fantasy title, Final Fantasy 16. Final Fantasy 16 was announced last summer as a PlayStation 5 exclusive release.
Final Fantasy 16 producer said last month that Square Enix “definitely” wanted to share an update on the role-playing game during TGS, but wasn’t sure if it could meet the deadline.
Speaking as part of a special live broadcast of Japanese Final Fantasy 14 (translation: Aitai Kimochi) Naoki Yoshida said that if his team can’t create content for this month’s show in time, he personally would like to host the next FF16 show when it’s closer to release.
“We really want to show something for the Tokyo Game Show 2021, but we probably won’t be able to meet this deadline … we definitely want to show it, but it’s not better if, when we do, you can play it right away. after ? “
He added: “I personally don’t like it when little pieces of information are released to get people involved. I talked about this with the team and director Takai-san. We want to show what people will say: “I want to play this now! Let him go now! ‘And we can answer: “Of course you do!”
“I know, as a company, they want us to at least show it on TGS.”
Square Enix is unveiling the Tokyo Game Show 2021, which airs at 7:00 p.m. Japanese standard time (6:00 a.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. ET) on October 1 and runs in just under an hour, the company announced this week.
