Final Fantasy 7 Remake shipping early due to coronavirus

Square Enix has been working to try and get Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s physical copies out ahead of time.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake publisher Square Enix, who previously warned that some physical copies will be delayed as a result of disruption caused by coronavirus, has sort of found a solution.

The company announced today that copies intended for Europe and and Australia have been shipped earlier than usual. Square Enix hopes that this will ensure those copies will arrive at launch in those regions, but it’s also aware that doing this risks getting them to some players ahead of the game’s global launch.

Copies intended for other regions, such as the Americas, will be shipped this week, and should arrive by the game’s official release date. Square Enix revealed all this in a statement posted on Twitter, urging fans who get their copies early not to spoil the game for everyone else.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is out April 10 on PS4.
