Many players are already playing Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy 7 Remake has been eagerly awaited by the fans of the series since it was announced for the first time at E3 2015,. Many players also expected to see it released much sooner than it's actually going to be, more precisely in 2017 for the 20th anniversary of the original game. A lot of patience is a must if you are a fan because Final Fantasy 7 Remake was originally scheduled to be released on March 3, but as everyone knows, the release date was postponed to April 10. Except that...

Faced with the current situation, Square Enix had published a press release announcing that they would send physical copies of the game to resellers in advance so that players can play Final Fantasy 7 Remake from the day of its release. It is quite obvious that some of them have reached their owners already because there are some people playing the game right now. Although specialized stores are closed almost everywhere, this is not the case for supermarkets, and some brands have already put the game on their shelves. Other players have also already received it by mail. So it seems that Square Enix has miscalculated the delivery difficulties to the delight of fans.


The players who pre-ordered Final Fantasy 7 Remake digital version will have to wait until April 10 to play it. However, it looks like the game's preload will be available sooner than expected too. It was initially scheduled for April 8 but many Internet users have shared photos of the countdown on Playsation 4 and the date indicated is April 3, tomorrow. This may well be a consequence of Sony's announcement to reduce bandwidth and it does not change the fact that the game should not be playable before the release date.

In addition, if you are one of the lucky ones who have already been able to get it, we strongly advise you not to share your gaming sessions as many users have already been banned from Twitch for doing it. If you can play Final Fantasy 7 Remake already, be nice and don't publish spoilers. If you haven't bought it yet, you'll find the best prices on our comparator.
