Holy cow, Final Fantasy 7 Remake has a release date

Get ready for some news you're not going to believe. Final Fantasy 7 Remake just got an official release date last night, and it's sooner than you might imagine.

According to PC Gamer, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is set for a PlayStation 4 debut on March 3, 2020. The big reveal came at a Final Fantasy 7: A Symphonic Reunion concert, and to be honest, the news jives with the vibe we got after Square Enix released its Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailer during May's State of Play.

In that trailer, Square Enix promised more would be coming at E3. That — combined with the fact that Square Enix took Sony's prime-time E3 slot — had us believing that some major news would come at the show. We definitely thought that something as big as a release date would wait for E3 itself, but now that Square Enix has that out of the way, we could see something huge at the company's conference tonight.

Maybe we'll finally get a look at Tifa! Or maybe we'll get a look at just how expansive the game plans to be. Will we leave Midgar in the first installment of Final Fantasy 7 Remake? That's a question that could be answered when Square Enix takes the stage later this evening.

One major question looms outside of all that with regard to the remake: will it be a PlayStation exclusive? The language reportedly used at the Final Fantasy 7 concert seems to leave the door open to other platforms, as it stated Final Fantasy 7 Remake would launch first on PlayStation 4, essentially. We know PC fans are chomping at the bit to get the remake, as are players on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, where a host of past Final Fantasy titles have recently gone on sale.

The topic of platform exclusivity (or temporary exclusivity) could be something Square Enix hits on tonight. Or the company could follow the lead of so many other companies and simply not mention other platforms period until Final Fantasy 7 Remake has released and spent a few months on the PlayStation Store.

We'll have eyes on the Square Enix conference tonight, eagerly awaiting word on Final Fantasy 7 Remake and any other titles the company deems worthy for presentation. As soon as we know more, we'll fill you in.
