It’s good news for Xbox One fans this week, as new rumours are circulating that suggest we may be seeing a game everyone thought would only be on PlayStation consoles come to the Microsoft platform, too.
The PS4 has had the lion’s share of the best exclusives this year – from early gems in the lineup like Bloodborne and Uncharted 4 to more recent classics like God of War and Spider-Man, Sony has been running rampant with the hits this gen.
And that’s before we get to its end-of-life lineup, too – looking at things like Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us 2 coming soon must be even more intimidating for Microsoft.
Well, at least there’s some respite – at least if new rumours are to be believed.
All the evidence seems to point to Square Enix’s high profile Final Fantasy project – Final Fantasy VII Remake – releasing on Xbox One, too.
Despite the game only having been shown at dedicated Final Fantasy events and Sony shows in the last few years, we know that Square Enix is keen on sharing its work out amongst all platforms now.
Nier Automata, for example, was a PlayStation exclusive for a few years before migrating to Xbox One and PC later. We saw the same with the likes of World of Final Fantasy Maxima, too – it was a PlayStation exclusive originally, then came to Switch and Xbox One. It’s not unfeasible to see the same happen with the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
If that pattern wasn’t enough for you, we’ve also spotted a listing for the game on Xbox One via GameStop Ireland.
The listing was originally seen by the eagle-eyed members of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Reddit page – and it looks like we’re going to get even more information on the game at E3 (perhaps with a release date and platform confirmation, too?)
You only need to look at the language Square Enix has been using with the game to get a handle on how it’s going to be released.
Back when the game was first revealed in 2015, the initial trailer said at the end “play it first on PlayStation 4”. That wording suggests there will be a period of console exclusivity beforehand, but then we’ll see the game rollout onto more platforms (at this rate, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it on the Switch too, to be honest).
We’re expecting to hear more about the game at E3, and of course you can stay tuned to DailyStar Gaming for everything you need to know about the title and what platforms it will release on.
