Square Enix have delayed the release of their Final Fantasy VII remake, with the game now set to launch a little over a month later than the original release date.
“In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date… Thank you for your patience and continued support.”
Another of Square Enix’s titles, Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers, which the aforementioned studio is handling publishing duties for, has also had its release date pushed back, this time by a more significant four months.
The game, which is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Stadia, was supposed to release 15 May, but today received a new launch date of 4 September.
“At Crystal Dynamics our ambition has always been to deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience. In order to achieve that goal, we have made the difficult decision to move the release date of Marvel’s Avengers,” read a statement published on the game’s official twitter account.
“When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come. To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.”
The third-person action adventure title, which was revealed at last year’s E3, contains both single player and multiplayer missions, and features a brand-new story and multiple playable heroes, including Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.
