It is looking like 2020 is going to be a great year for video games. Though, fans might not be overly happy with the most recent news from Square Enix. On the official Final Fantasy VII Remake twitter today, it was announced that the upcoming game’s release date would be pushed back. This came along with news from another Square Enix game, Marvel’s Avengers, which is being developed by Crystal Dynamics, is also being pushed back.
Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase penned the note, stating that the team just needed a bit more time to polish everything off before release. Similarly the note from Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, co-heads of Crystal Dynamics, stated that they would use the time to fine tune the game and bring fans something they would be proud of. While the push back for FFVII Remake is only a month, putting it at April 10, 2020, the release date for Marvel’s Avengers is being pushed all the way back to September 4, 2020. The initial release date for the game was May 15, 2020.
I think any fan would say that they would be fine with a delay, as long as both games are at their best upon release. Regardless of when they do release, both games are looking to be really great.
