Final Fantasy 7 Remake delayed to April

"I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer."

Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, originally due to be released on March 3rd, is being delayed by slightly over a month.

The announcement was made via Twitter, where a new release date of April 10th has been revealed.

"We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience," wrote producer Yoshinori Kitase on Square Enix's website. "I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologise to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer."

Thankfully, the delay is a pretty short one - and it'll be worth it to see a more polished game as a result. Although, given demo footage has already leaked spoilers of the game, it looks like fans will have to be vigilant with spoiler hashtags for a little while longer.
