It’s been a little over a year now since the release of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, and I daresay I’m not alone in the fact that while I’d absolutely love to play it, I’m somewhat patiently awaiting the launch of the PC version. It’s not necessarily that I think the PC release will be better, but I am a PC gamer, and a PC is what I want to play it on. It really is as simple as that.
While we know nearly as a categorical fact that the PC version is, more or less, ready (following the launch of the original trailer which clearly showed a ‘Footage Recorded on PC’ tag) though, we have been stuck waiting while the current PS4 exclusivity deal runs out. With the upcoming release of the PS5 version, however, a report via Eurogamer is, quite rightly, and sadly, suggesting that PC (and Xbox) owners are probably going to have to wait for at least another 6 months!
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade comes out for the PS5 on 10th June and will basically represent a more graphically glossy version of the game. With, it should be noted, a little bit more content added to the mix. However, the bad news is that it’s almost guaranteed that this release has seen a new exclusivity deal signed between Sony and Square Enix.
One that will, more than likely, unfortunately see Final Fantasy VII delayed on both PC and the Xbox Series S/X.
What Do We Think?
As above, I’m absolutely dying to get my teeth into this game. With the PC release being a case of when rather than if, I am still willing to wait a little bit longer. Sure, I’d love to see how good it looks on the PS5, and the trailer above is certainly more than a little impressive. If you too fall into the same camp as me, though, we’re probably looking now at either Christmas or early 2022. And I’ll admit, that stinks!
