Deleted Tweet seems to suggest Final Fantasy 7 Remake is coming to more than just PS4 [Update]

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake has only ever been advertised as a PS4 game, but it looks like this is no longer the case.

Update: Following the publication of this story, Square Enix sent a statement reiterating that Final Fantasy 7 Remake has only been announced for PS4.

"As previously announced, Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on March 3rd 2020. We have no plans for other platforms," it reads.

Original story: Earlier today, Xbox Germany posted a video of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, revealing it'll arrive on Xbox One on March 3, 2020. In case you're unaware, this is the same release date for the PS4 version.

The Tweet was quickly deleted, with Xbox Germany communications and social lead Maxi Graff promptly apologising. "We did an internal mistake in the Social Team. We took the video off immediately. Sorry, no announcement on our side," she wrote.

PS4 is, of course, the only platform the game has ever been officially announced for, so you can see why the Tweet caused confusion.

Although no logos for any other platform have appeared in trailers released so far, Square Enix never explicitly said Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a PS4-exclusive; the assumption was that it will launch first on PS4 before coming to other platforms.

Indeed, the E3 2015 reveal trailer featured a 'play it first on PS4' stinger at the end, which points to the game being a timed exclusive.

It now appears this timed exclusivity either no longer exists, or it's negligible enough that other platforms could advertise the remake's release. This may also be a simple screw-up on Xbox's end, but only time will tell.
