Final Fantasy 7 PC launch was accidental - report

Final Fantasy 7 launched on PC at the weekend in the US, but fans who downloaded the game found it wouldn't work. A Square-Enix source has allegedly clarified the issue.

MCV reports that a Square-Enix source close to the publication has told them the launch was premature and that the publisher will issue a statement on the matter imminently.

Final Fantasy 7 PC went live on the US Square-Enix store at the weekend, but when gamers tried to play it they found that the SecuROM DRM wouldn't authenticate.

The reason? The game wasn't supposed to be out yet.

More as it happens.
