Final Fantasy VII Remake May Be Headed To Xbox
Square Enix’s action role-playing game, Final Fantasy VII Remake, may be headed to Xbox, based on the latest rumor.
Speaking during the latest episode of The Xbox Two podcast, co-host Jez Corden, who is known for his sources within the game industry, stated that Final Fantasy VII Remake may see the light of day on Xbox platforms. He doesn’t believe the game is contractually locked down by Sony Interactive Entertainment as a permanent console exclusive. As such, the window of opportunity exists for it to appear on other platforms, including Xbox and Nintendo consoles.
Corden further mentioned that he has tentative evidence that there are discussions going on, presumably between Microsoft and Square Enix, for Final Fantasy 7 Remake to make its way to Xbox. That said, he believes that neither Square Enix nor Sony Interactive Entertainment would currently want an announcement in this regard to take the spotlight off of the upcoming sequel, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. However, he does see Final Fantasy VII Remake eventually getting released on both the Nintendo Switch 2 and Xbox consoles.
It was also discussed during the podcast that Final Fantasy XVI may also be released on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S after the second expansion has been released. The game is currently in development for PC.
Previously, former Reset Era member Im A Hero Too, who had deleted their account after leaking information regarding several Japanese games that are in development, had once again emerged to share that Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for the Nintendo Switch 2, and that it looks and runs just like the PS5 version on a devkit. They were told that the porting process took no time, and, as a result, it may end up being a launch title for Nintendo’s next console.
