Final Fantasy VII Remakes Business Insider

Earlier today, Square Enix revealed that the company is pushing back its upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake and Marvel's Avengers. Final Fantasy VII remake has been delayed until April 10 and Marvel's Avengers will now be releasing on September 4. The developing teams behind both the games have explained that they need more time for polishing the games and the gameplay experiences themselves.

"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,” commented Yoshinori Kitase, the producer for Final Fantasy VII Remake. “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.”

The heads of Crystal Dynamics, Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, also posted similar news about Marvel's Avengers: “We will spend this additional development time focusing on fine-tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.”

Crystal Dynamics also posted an update on its website, stating "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."

The post went on to explain that the game is going to deliver a story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years ahead.

While any delay is a bit of a bummer, we do wonder why Square Enix is pushing Final Fantasy VII remake into a big period for major releases. Talking about big games, Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to launch in April and the major PS4 exclusive The Last of Us 2 is also expected to release on May 29.
