Final Fantasy 7 Remake was launched today for the PlayStation 4, and as part of the festivities, Square Enix and PlayStation posted a "thank you" video to fans. But one line spotted during the video resurfaces questions of when this remake might eventually find its way to other platforms.
In the trailer, Producer Yoshinori Kitase discusses the changes made to the original Final Fantasy 7. Over it, gameplay starts rolling from the first part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but with a caption: "Gameplay captured on PC."
It was noticed last year that Final Fantasy 7 Remake's box art had a timed exclusive disclaimer, saying the RPG would be exclusive to PlayStation 4 for a year. This new trailer notes the same, saying "play first" on PS4 until April 10, 2021.
Other Final Fantasy games have received PC ports, sometimes with additional features like Final Fantasy 15's Windows Edition. But that port came in 2018, two years after FF15's 2016 launch date on consoles. With a PC version apparently already set to capture gameplay off of, it seems like PC players won't have to wait too long past that initial timed exclusivity.
