Xbox Germany Accidentally Posts Final Fantasy 7 Remake Xbox One Release Date

12 July 2019

Final Fantasy 7 Remake may be our most anticipated game of E3 2019, but it hasn't been announced for an Xbox One release just yet. At time of writing, that video appears to have been taken down, but not before screenshots were captured and shared to social media (you can check them out further down this article). However, Xbox Germany's marketing communications and social lead Maxi Graff confirmed that it was only a mistake. Sorry, no announcement on our side.

Square Enix has since chimed in on the error itself, stating that the company has "no plans for other platforms" while reiterating that Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on March 3rd 2020 for the PS4.

While a lot of Final Fantasy video games are on the Xbox One, there are also several that aren't so Final Fantasy VII Remake's absence isn't too shocking or surprising for Xbox gamers. However, that may be set to chance with an apparent announcement from Xbox Germany. Is Final Fantasy 7 Remake due for a simultaneous release with PS4, and Xbox's social team has accidentally let the news out early?

PS4 is, of course, the only platform the game has ever been officially announced for, so you can see why the Tweet caused confusion. "We make sure this doesn´t happen again".

Back when Final Fantasy VII Remake was first announced, we learned that Square Enix had some form of exclusivity deal in place with Sony for the PS4.
