Square Enix Announces Multiple Delays

Square Enix is delaying the release of two highly anticipated titles. Apparently, both Marvel’s Avengers and Final Fantasy VII Remake are in need of polishing.

Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, the Co-Heads of Crystal Dynamics, said as much on their blog. Stating that they’ll spend “additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.” Because of this, instead of being released on May 15th, Marvel’s Avengers will be release on September 4th.

Yoshinori Kitase, the Producer of FFVII Remake, had a similar reason for delaying FFVII. “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.” The team needs more time to work out the bugs and such.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will now be released on April 10th. While this news is somewhat disappointing, fans shouldn’t be too upset. Getting a better game late is…well, better than getting a bad game early.

The only issue here is their proximity to other big titles. Final Fantasy VII Remake has been squished between Resident Evil 3 (April 3rd) and Cyberpunk 2077 (April 16th). And while September is wide open, past experience tells me that it’ll be jam packed with games before too long; last year, we got Gears 5, Link’s Awakening, Borderlands 3, MHW: Iceborne and Code Vein (to name a few).
