The hotly-anticipated game FF7 Remake is scheduled for release on April 10th, 2020. Read on to find out whether the release date will potentially be delayed again.

FF7 Remake has a Release Date of April 10th

Originally, the release date was set as March 3rd, 2020, a date first shown in the A Symphonic Reunion trailer on June 9th, 2019.

However, on January 14th, 2020, the release date was delayed by over a month to April 10th, 2020.

Now, as the Release Date approaches ever closer, fans are wondering: is it possible that the release will be delayed again?

On Friday, January 31st, fans were rewarded for their patience with the thrilling Theme Song Trailer, packed with four minutes of detailed story sequences. We're happy to say that the game looks more complete than ever before, giving viewers a strong sense of confidence in the new release date.

On the other hand, the lack of combat and player-controlled scenes in the trailer may concern some fans. Although the playable demo released at E3 last year was highly lauded, it's already been eight months since then. How have the combat and physics systems of the game developed since then? The new trailer doesn't give much in the way of answers to these questions.

That said, based on what we have seen in trailers so far, the essential elements of combat are already complete. Boss fights which are presumably found near the end of the game, such as a battle with JENOVA, which didn't appear at this point in the story in the original, seem to be already reaching completion.

Conclusion

Based on what we've seen so far of the game, it appears that the release date of April 10th, 2020 will not change. As most of the main story elements and battles have been shown in trailers already, it's safe to assume most major aspects of gameplay are nearing completion.

It remains to be seen if the more subtle aspects of gameplay, and issues such as bug testing, are going according to schedule. However, unlike the original FF7, which had its share of bugs, this time Square Enix has the option to patch the game after release to fix any remaining issues. So we think it's fair to say that the game release will proceed as planned on April 10th, 2020.

    • The mocap actors for the game only just start work.
      This prove the game is still in the very early stage of development.
      So the early trailer for part 2 is likely be in 2022 and the release date is likely 2023-2024.

      If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
