The 1997 PlayStation role-playing video game was supposed to be getting a remake for PlayStation 4 in March this year, but it has now been revealed the game – which will be titled ‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ – has been pushed back just over a month in order to make time for the “final polish”.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase said in a message from publishers and developers Square Enix:

“We are making this tough decision in order to give ourselves a few extra weeks to apply final polish to the game and to deliver you with the best possible experience. I, on behalf of the whole team, want to apologise to everyone, as I know this means waiting for the game just a little bit longer. Thank you for your patience and continued support.”

The game was originally due to hit shelves on March 3, and has been hotly anticipated by fans of the ‘Final Fantasy’ franchise since Square Enix first suggested the game could get a remake back in the early 2000s.

After teasing the possibility of a remake at E3 in 2005, plans to remake the popular title – which is largely regarded as one of the best video games of all time – were made official a decade later at E3 2015, when Sony officially announced that a full-blown remake was a real thing.

Recently, the demo for the game was leaked, leading to spoilers about the game’s content circulating the internet, but Square Enix has not given word regarding when the demo may be released to the public.
