In a message posted to Twitter, Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s producer announced the game’s delay with an apology.

Ever since it was announced at E3 2015, Final Fantasy 7 Remake has undoubtedly been one of the most anticipated games of all time. And after four, nearly five, long years of waiting, it’s nearly upon us. But unfortunately that wait is going to have to last a little while longer.

Earlier today, the game’s official Twitter account posted a brief but concise message explaining that the title will no longer be able to hit its original release date of 3 March. Fortunately, producer Yoshinori Kitase was able to provide a new release date of 10 April, so we only have to wait just over a month.

This does mean, however, that it will be vying for attention alongside some other massive releases, namely the Resident Evil 3 remake on 3 April and Cyberpunk 2077 on 16 April.

Kitase expresses regret in having to delay the game, calling it a ‘tough decision.’ He didn’t provide a specific reason for the delay, but he said that it will give the team a few extra weeks to further polish the game so it can be the best it can possibly be.

Considering the hype surrounding the title, a minor delay like this may not be a bad decision. Square Enix have a lot riding on this, and its reception will assuredly have an effect on future instalments, since the full Final Fantasy 7 experience is being split into multiple parts.

Funnily enough, this news broke almost immediately after Nintendo announced a livestream that will finally reveal who the next DLC character is for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is. Is there some sort of connection? Does this mean Sephiroth will be the new fighter? Probably not and it’s just a weird coincidence.

Final Fantasy7 Remake will now launch on PlayStation 4 on 10 April.
