While many fans are waiting for the Final Fantasy VII Remake to arrive on the market, it seems like the new coronavirus is messing things up once again. The game is a remake for the 1997 PlayStation game dubbed Final Fantasy VII, and it’s being developed and published by Square Enix.
Square Enix is fair and says that it cannot control the release date for when the game remake becomes available. In a blog post, the company declared the following:
“As you will be aware, many countries are limiting entry or closing their national and state borders and restricting the distribution and delivery of non-essential items,”
“Understandably these restrictions are being implemented so that essential items can reach their destination as fast as possible.”
There is still hope that people can play the game on April 10
Square Enix says that it’s working hard to be sure that most gamers will get to play the Final Fantasy VII remake on April 10, and it’s advising people to stay safe. However, those willing to play the game on their PCs will need some powerful hardware on their machines:
- CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Or AMD FX-8320
- Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 of 2 GB or AMD Radeon R9 380
- RAM: 8 GB
- Windows: Windows 7,8,8.1 and 10 (64 Bit)
- DirectX: DX 11
- HDD Space: 50 GB
It’s a mini debate online if whether Final Fantasy VII Remake will also be available on PCs or not, but we have reasons to be optimistic. The game is surely arriving for PS4 consoles. One surprising aspect is that Final Fantasy VII Remake will work on Windows 7, an operating system that it’s officially dead since January. Microsoft is not offering any technical support or updates for it anymore. However, the best option is to make the upgrade to Windows 10 if you haven’t done so already.
