Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade Trailer Confirms It May Be A PS5 Exclusive
Some finer details at the end of the trailer seem to indicate that the PS5 exclusivity will last “at least six months.”
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is bringing another big chapter in the series to PS5 soon.
Focusing on Wutai ninja and material thief Yuffie Kisaragi, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade focuses on a completely different angle of the events taking place in Midgar.
Coming in June, it will be exclusive to PS5 at launch. However, this may not be the permanent case. The latest details from Intergrade seem to indicate that there may be a limit on the game’s PS5 exclusivity.
This anecdote comes from the final trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, which was released on Final Fantasy’s YouTube channel on May 7, 2021.
While the trailer takes another deep look at Yuffie’s adventure and many of the details we’ve seen in previous announcements of the game, there was a bit of fine print at the end that provided interesting details.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade “appears to be available on PS5 at least six months earlier than any other format,” which seems to suggest that there is a limit to the exclusivity.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake games are only available on PlayStation devices for the time being.
Even the base Final Fantasy 7 Remake is only available for PS4 and PS5.
However, this does not completely eliminate the possibility of moving the game to another place.
Increasingly, Sony is becoming more open to allowing some PlayStation exclusives to have a second life on other platforms.
We’ve seen Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding come to PC, and MLB The Show 21 is even on Xbox with cross-play now.
With Final Fantasy 7 Remake serving as one of Square Enix’s flagship products, it would make sense for the publisher to want to increase the game’s audience with a PC version.
It’s not yet known if this means Final Fantasy 7 Remake can land on other platforms or if Intergrade may stop being only on PS5 and come to PS4 players who aren’t upgraded.
However, the line about limited exclusivity is surprising.
We’ll be watching if anything happens when Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade launches on June 10, 2021.
