Square Enix and Sony have confirmed that the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be exclusive to PlayStation 5 for at least three months. The game's release date is set for February 29, 2024, and Sony's deal with Square Enix ensures that it will not be available on other platforms until at least May 29, 2024.
This exclusivity deal follows the pattern set by its predecessor, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which launched on PlayStation 4 in April 2020 before being enhanced and released on PS5 in June 2021. An Xbox version has yet to be announced, but Xbox boss Phil Spencer has hinted that the game may eventually make its way to Microsoft's console.
During Sony's State of Play September 2023 showcase, Square Enix provided details about Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. The game is said to offer 100 hours of content and continues the story of the original game's trilogy of remakes. This announcement has generated much excitement among fans of the series, who are eagerly anticipating the release of the game.
The exclusivity of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth on PlayStation 5 for the first three months provides a significant advantage for Sony, as it gives them an opportunity to attract players to their platform. Whether other platforms will receive the game after the exclusivity period remains to be seen.
In the meantime, fans can look forward to diving into a world of adventure and nostalgia with Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth on PlayStation 5.
