Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth release date and time

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth releases worldwide on Thursday, February 29th 2024. According to dataminer PlaystationSize on X (formerly Twitter), it releases at 12am. We're not sure whether this is a global 12am release yet where you have to wait for midnight in your timezone, or if this is 12am in one timezone with differing release times in other countries.

We'll update this page when we know for sure what time Rebirth releases in each timezone.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth file size

With thanks to PlayStationSize again, we know that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has a 145.25GB file size. That's a pretty huge download size, so it's no wonder the physical version has two discs!

To make sure you have enough room for any day one patches or future updates, we recommend freeing up at least 165GB of space on your PS5 if you can.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth pre-load date and time

With a file size that huge, you'll want to pre-load as soon as it's available so you can get stuck into the game on launch day. Thanks to dataminer PlayStationSize once more, we know that you can pre-load Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth from Tuesday, 27th February at midnight.

Again, we're not sure whether this is a global release time for midnight in each timezone, or 12am in one timezone, so different preload times for each country.

We'll update this page when we know official details of more precise Rebirth pre-load times.
