This morning, Xbox Germany posted a video on their Facebook page advertising the release date for Final Fantasy 7 Remake on Xbox One. But now it seems that was just a slip-up, rather than an official announcement of Midgar coming to the Microsoft console.
The remake of Final Fantasy 7 not being necessarily exclusive isn't wholly new, as early trailers labelled it as "play it first" on PlayStation 4 rather than exclusively. But for the time being, Sony's platform is the only confirmed one. In response to a Twitter thread Maxi Gräff, marketing communications and social lead for Xbox Germany, cleared up the confusion, saying it was an "internal mistake" from the social team and there's no announcements at this time.
Hey. We did an internal mistake in the Social Team. We took the video off immediately. Sorry, no announcement on our side. Big apologies for this.- Maxi Gräff (@GMaxee) July 10, 2019
Sorry, Xbox fans. Final Fantasy 7 Remake looks like it's coming together well, however, although Cloud was surprisingly vulgar in the demo we saw at E3 2019. Set to take place throughout the entire early Midgar arc, the segmented game will retell the story of Final Fantasy 7, arguably one of the best role-playing games of all time, through modern conventions. But don't fret too much; the Active Time Battle system, or ATB, is still in.
While it's curious why this slip-up would even happen, it seems that for the time being at least, PlayStation 4 is where Final Fantasy 7 Remake is destined. We'll see if that changes by its release date on March 3, 2020.
