Analyst Claims Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Sales Have Been Disappointing, Selling Half Of FF7 Remake

An analyst has claimed that sales of Square Enix’s second entry in the Final Fantasy VII Remake trilogy, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, have been disappointing, as the game is selling half the number of copies as the first game.

Daniel Ahmad, Director of Research and Insights at Niko Partners, took to Twitter/X to reveal that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is under-performing in terms of sales. He added that the game is selling about half of what Final Fantasy VII Remake sold in the same time frame, and, according to him, it looks like it’ll have a weaker tail. He mentioned that his information comes from Equities research reports, which gets its data from the usual trackers.

This will come as a major disappointment to Final Fantasy VII fans, and it doesn’t bode well for the future of the series. It also comes as a surprise, given that the game has been well-received by the gaming press at large. On Metacritic, the game is currently at an aggregate of 92, which is higher than any single-player Final Fantasy title has achieved in nearly two decades.

On a positive note, a recent sales update from Famitsu revealed that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has sold a total of 4,840 physical copies in its 5th week since release in Japan. This brought the game’s total sales to 310,596 copies, making it the third best selling PS5 game in the country to date, with only Final Fantasy XVI, with sales of around 429,000 copies, and Gran Turismo 7, with sales of around 348,000 copies, being ahead of it. While not quite the sales that Square Enix would’ve likely hoped for, given the overall popularity of Final Fantasy VII and its characters, it’s still a respectable total for the second entry in the new trilogy. It’s also worth pointing out that digital figures are not included in this tally.
