After we all feared Final Fantasy 7 Remake would suffer another delay, some copies may in fact arrive early in Europe and Australia.
It was only a few days ago that Square Enix warned that physical copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake could turn up late as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
Now, it appears the opposite will happen, with copies likely to arrive earlier than the intended 10 April release date in both Europe and Australia.
SquareEnix has stated that this was a conscious decision on its part to ship themearly due to disruptions caused by the coronavirus.
‘We had some hard decisions to make during the final weeks before launch due to disruption to distribution channels caused by the spread of the Covid-19 virus,’ reads a statement on Twitter.
‘Theseunique circumstances have made it very difficult to align timing of our globalshipping. Our highest priority is that all of you, including those who live incountries currently facing the biggest disruption, can play the game at launch,so we made the decision to ship the game far earlier than usual to Europe andAustralia.’
‘Weknow there are potential spoilers that have been out there for over two decadesas the original Final Fantasy 7 was released in 1997. But Final Fantasy 7Remake is a new game that still has many surprises for everyone. All our fansand players deserve to experience the game for themselves, and we ask for thesupport of our dedicated community around the world to ensure that.’
In fact, according to Eurogamer, the game’s street date has already been broken, and some fans have their copies already.
One such person took to Reddit to show off the contents of the deluxe edition on an unofficial Final Fantasy 7 Remake subreddit, though was gracious enough to add that they wouldn’t post spoilers.
That didn’t stop the post from being deleted by the thread’s moderators, and it seems that anything even close to resembling spoilers will be removed should they be posted there.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be available this year as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, before coming to Xbox One sometime after April 2021.
