Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Ship ‘Much Earlier’ In Europe And Australia, Square Enix Confirms
Square Enix has released a new statement, once again addressing the shipping and delivery of Final Fantasy VII Remake amid the coronavirus outbreak. The publisher confirms that in Europe and Australia, the upcoming RPG title will ship “much sooner” than initially planned.
The development team writes: “We had to make some difficult decisions during the last few weeks before launch due to the disruption of distribution channels caused by the spread of the COVID-19 virus. These unique circumstances have made it very difficult to align the timing of our global shipping.”
The statement continues: “Our highest priority is that all of you, including those who live in countries currently facing the most disruption, will be able to play the game at launch, which is why we made the decision to ship the game much earlier than usual to Europe and Australia.
In other words, the game is shipping much earlier than expected to combat potential delays. Of course, this means that those of you who have pre-ordered may end up getting your hands on Final Fantasy VII Remake before its official release date next week on April 10.
As for North America, Square Enix has this to say: “For other Western regions, including the Americas, copies will be shipping this week and we are optimistic that most of you will receive the game by launch day. However, due to the difficult situation, we are unable to provide delivery dates for every country and every retailer.”
The publisher also asks those who get the game early to be aware of spoilers.
