After several days of posting cryptic tweets, Square Enix has finally given us more information on the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth including a tentative release window. According to the short preview, the upcoming sequel will apparently be released at some point during early 2024, which is as vague a time frame as you could get since that could be at any point from January to April next year.
Luckily, the developers have also decided to give us more details on the game’s actual release plans as they’ve announced that the physical edition will apparently be on two discs harkening back to the days of the PS1. Naturally, this will force hardcore Final Fantasy enthusiasts to opt for this version instead as opposed to the digital since a game with dual CDs is a rarity nowadays.
But aside from a launch window being provided and the game’s physical edition being thrown back into the 90s, the preview also featured several in-game scenes of Cloud, Aerith, Tifa, and the rest of the gang traveling through Gaia. Other portions of the video even included better looks at Final Fantasy 7’s real-time battle system that made it stand out from the rest of the series when the original game was first released.
Sadly, with no specific release date still in sight, we’ll just have to remain patient until the end of the year for Square Enix to give us more information on their plans. While you wait, though, we recommend checking out the stunning trailer that was shown during Summer Game Fest 2023. Once you’re done digesting the preview, take a look at our Diablo 4 Collapsed Vault dungeon guide and our comprehensive compilation of all Diablo 4 Stronghold locations in the meantime.
