Two of Square Enix’s games have been delayed with Final Fantasy VII going from March 3rd to April 20th and Marvel’s Avengers from May 15th to September 3rd.
Yoshinori Kitase, Producer of Final Fantasy VII RemakeWe know that so many of you are looking forward to the release of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE and have been waiting patiently to experience what we have been working on. In order to ensure we deliver a game that is in-line with our vision, and the quality that our fans who have been waiting for deserve, we have decided to move the release date to April 10, 2020.
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 apologize to everyone, as I know this me ans waiting for the game just a little bit longer.
Thank you for your patience and continued support.
Scot Amos and Ron Rosenberg, Co-Studio Heads of Crystal DynamicsAt Crystal Dynamics our ambition has always been to deliver the ultimate Avengers gaming experience. In order to achieve that goal, we have made the difficult decision to move the release date of Marvel’s Avengers to September 4, 2020.
As fans ourselves, it’s an honor and a privilege to work with these legendary characters and we know what these Super Heroes mean to us and True Believers around the world. When we set out to bring you our vision for Marvel’s Avengers, we committed to delivering an original story-driven campaign, engaging co-op, and compelling content for years to come. To that end, we will spend this additional development time focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve.
The worldwide teams working on Marvel’s Avengers sincerely appreciate the support you’ve shown us. We thrive on your enthusiasm and feedback and we can’t wait to show you more. We apologize for the delay. We’re confident it will be worth the wait.
The delays aren’t too surprising as we haven’t heard much info on both games and they were both a couple of months from release before the delays. Marvel’s Avengers is definitely the least surprising considering many had a problem the with some of the game’s design choices from what they saw in the footage released. I personally won’t complain because as Miyamoto once said: “A delayed game is eventually good but a rushed game is forever bad”.
