With the PS4 delay came an unfortunate side-effect.

In December 2019, Square Enix provided some fresh, new media for Final Fantasy VII Remake. At the time, the developer showed off a new trailer for the game, provided details on various pre-order bonuses, and even snuck in a new look at the game's box art.

On that box art was a little blurb about how the game was a "PlayStation Exclusive," at least until March 3, 2021. Almost exactly one month later, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake was delayed until April 10, 2020.

It never really crossed our mind at the time that this would impact any other platform since, you know, no other platforms have been officially announced just yet. Well, at least the folks over at Gematsu were thinking about that very thing. The site noticed today that Square Enix has once again updated the box artwork for the PlayStation 4 release of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Now, instead of saying "PlayStation Exclusive" until March 3, 2021, it instead says that the game is exclusive until April 10, 2021. This obviously makes a lot of sense given the PlayStation 4 delay and the implied exclusivity period of one year. It probably also didn't help matters much that these box art updates have been made without even a single peep from Square Enix.

It is, at the very least, assumed that Final Fantasy VII Remake will come to at least the PC next year. It's also very possible that it will see a release on the Xbox platform as well given that almost the entire Final Fantasy franchise is headed to Xbox throughout 2020. I'm also going out on a limb here to predict that we'll see a next-gen console release of the game at some point.
