Square Enix says that even though some regions are getting Final Fantasy VII Remake early, they aren't going to move up the digital release date

April 03, 2020 1 min read

As we noted earlier this week, Final Fantasy VII Remake's pre-load date has been bumped up a bit. In the physical realm, copies are already being shipped in some regions, allowing select folks to play it early. But what about the digital edition? It's a no go on the early release, says Square Enix.

Noting the "frustration" of the situation on their official support center, a Square Enix rep explains that they will not move up the digital date, as the "bulk of [their] shipments to retailers across the globe are still schedule to arrive in stores" on the April 10 release date.

It's pretty cut and dried: if there was going to be a magic early release button press, we'd know about it by now. This is just a week away from launch after all, and changing the date that quickly could mess up a lot of distribution agreements as folks clamor to buy the game digitally from whatever PSN region it's available on. It would be chaos.

The good news: well, I just told you the good news. It's finally coming in just a week! After all these years of waiting, it's actually happening. You can find the full response to the situation below.
